Add Ons: Some scratch built cockpit details.

I enjoyed painting the plane. The roundels and white stripes along with the leading edge yellow were all painted. It's a good thing because the decal on the fin and the stripe on the fuselage were a horror show ! They kept curling up on the edges no matter how much setting fluid I used. I eventually used some white glue with water to get them to settle down. The decals for the white stripe, roundels and leading edge would have put me in the nuthouse !

Thanks everyone. It was nice to build something other than a Luftwaffe kit for a change.
