    For this Phantom, I will be doing one of the aircraft sent to Ascension Island after the Falklands War. As with the Sabre, I'm not sure which aircraft precisely I'm doing, but I'm hoping to do the aircraft that Terry stuck a sticker on before it departed the UK! We just have to try and determine which one it is. Here are some pictures, both from the internet and that Terry provided in another thread, of some of the aircraft. Karl has also very kindly offered me his extra stencils as neither the kit nor the AirDoc decal sheet came with them...

    Thanks guys.

    I have Andy, and have a few additional photos that I've omitted in the post, but I do not have a ton. I'll have to do another search.

    I'm assuming the rudder pedals would be the same colour as the rest of the tub? I can't find a picture that actually shows them.

    Yep. The quilted padding on the rear cockpit side walls, although the same light grey, had a very slight beige/brown tint to it.

    Always liked that scheme of the Alcock and Brown commemoration flight. That was a couple of 56 Squadron guys Alcock and Brown who popped across the Atlantic on that flight, shame you're not doing that one Cory.

    But I like the Ascension idea, honestly didn't know they had been sent there after the Falklands War.

    I had that decal set Cory, years back but when I tried to use it even though I'd treated it first, the whole set just cracked into shards as soon as it was applied. Crying shame but the model was still finished in my 56 Squadron theme.
