Done it :rolleyes:, the bloody thing had actually split as it came off the backing paper and all the cajolling it into joining back together had knocked it out of place.

Great stuff mate. The varnish looks ok, bearing in mind Luftwaffe finishes were semi-matt. Maybe a touch more on the yellow if you think fit, as this was a washable, distemper-like paint, with a matt finish. It looks OK as is in the pics though.
Brilliant outcome Karl. I'd lean toward a flatter finish if I was doing it but I think it looks just fine as is.
