Yes. This is the number one problem with the foil method. It is all or nothing.Subtle is good IMHO. Often too overdone.

Kevin, that finish looks sweet, The polishing really paid off!
If the anti-glare panels aren't done first, it can cause problems with the masking lifting the silver paint. Try painters low tack blue tape and stick it to your hand first a couple of times before applying it to the plane, then get it off as soon as possible after painting.
We are our own worst critics, but it is looking good!
Looking very sharp Kevin! With all here sir. I see nothing wrong with what you have there paint wise. Even it it is a little thin on the underside in places, that is not a bad thing. To me it ads a weathered look which I tend to like. Just a opinion.
Looks like the real deal to me unless you're going for that highly polished "Do not touch the aircraft" modern warbird airshow look. It'll look great with the decals on.
I agree, don't rag on yourself too much. What you got there is a mighty fine result. It's gonna look great amongst the entries. Well done.
