I have the 4 angles that I want as acceptable, I don't care of the underside, I tell my family "don't touch, very fragile" so no fear that it will be turned in all directions to see the defaults... (in the 1990s, I was seeking for perfection, never finishing anything...).

If you're well pleased that's what matters, Tophe! I am delighted with the result!

Looks great and I really like how the overall color sets off those tinted canopies as well as the unique layout.

Oh and those lovely spats, all four of them!

Thanks!

It was not well shown on the views before, but there are wheels/tyres Inside these spats, look at the picture below.
I don't know why the flash creates grey reflects, this is not awful painting (I have checked and this is all sky blue visually - except tyres)

"Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up!"

And what a lovely close-uo that is indeed!

Thank you for the bonus shot, Tophe.

I agree, the way things photograph sometimes mystifies me as well.

Such a delightful model, mon ami!

Thanks! :smiley:
And do you know what is the technical justification of those 4 spats? ???
Uh? The answer is: fantasy! ;)

PS. I have 2 sets of decals, that I will not use, is someone interested? interested ones could send me a PM, I will send them for free (this is better than throwing in the garbage can) :smiley:. But I cannot go to the post office this week, I could send next week.
