    go to EE's web-site. The old softback Doras of the Galland Circus has been OOP for some time but there still might be copies floating around - amazon or ?

    Seat belt decals? Ugh! Make some from thin strips of paper, and draw-in the details, or make the latter from thin plastic card/stretched sprue. Fairly straight forward, look much better, and I'm sure a man of your calibre can manage it!!

    Rubbish! Course you are! If I can do it with knackered hands, I'm sure you can; it's only a matter of cutting thin strips of paper, any paper, or even thin vinyl or plastic sheet, sticking it in place, then painting it! Apart from looking OK, it's actually easier than trying to place the decal!

    Jan use a piece of aluminium foil that you can obtain from a box of margarine
    or others.You know the foil is under the box cover and guard it agains the air.Also joghurt cubs are protected with it at the top of them.Choose the foil with a texture of canvas on its surface.Use a sharp scalpel and a ruller to cut off some thin strips.Make some buckles of thin wire and da da...I have made these for my P-51B in that way.I didn't use any glue to put fasteners and belts together.
