Didn't get too much done over Christmas, was pretty busy with family this weekend. But spent some time playing with files and the silhouette cameo cutter, got the shark mouth stencil applied and sprayed the Insignia white teeth. Needed a slight touch up with neutral gray in a couple of spots but came out very nice.

Home made decals printed on my ancient ALPS printer. For small solid color items this works perfect.

Along with the decals come vinyl masks for the numbers and insignia. Here is the Insignia Blue for the stars, out of the bottle Model Master for the side and bottom, a bit of white for the upper to represent sun fading on the worn wings.

Sprayed the Insignia white tonight, after removing the tape 3 look perfect but one side of the fuselage the star somehow moved so is not centered on the blue. So I will need to redo that side, luckily I cut an extra set of masks.
