    We made it guys! And yes, she is quite beautiful. Decaled it today and it is done, the checkered decals were a pain in the butt and I got some tiny air pockets but im not worried about it. I had to omit the red lines because I cut it out and when I slid it off the sheet it ripped, I think its justified without it anyway.. Let me know what you think :p

    Hey, pretty good! Don't know if you can do it, or want to, but the 78th used the 'tear drop' shaped drop tanks, as shown in the attached pics. Can't remember if the kitv has both types of tank though.
    That's Col. Landers getting into the first Mustang - obviously not using BBD that day!
    Nice work, especially those tricky decals for the nose, well done.

    Maglar, pretty good job! I see you had a touch of trouble with the nose checkerboard decal. Again, good job!

    Hi Maglar. Good job. I'm hoping to use the coming easter long weekend to paint my 1/32 Hasegawa BBD and am anxious about those nose decals too. I dare say they're be a 'help me' post closer to that time. Naturally I'll post pics but not too soon.

    It wasnt too bad, but I accidently put the bottom one on the top and had to take it off while it was doing its stick reaction. I brushed down water on the model then put them on, there were tons of air bubbles because it requires you to cut flaps into the checker-pattern to wrap the nose therefore air gets in constantly. Mine doesnt look amazing but I pulled off the P51 look and im fine with that. Maybe a decal solvent or something would help.. might buy some. But dont stress too hard, I didnt get mine right and I think the model still looks great, but I also made it :D
