Where did this one come from?

Out of left field, as my American friend would say!

I have put the Mustang to one side having ruined the windows for a second time.

Some time ago, one of our customers returned some decals saying that they were out of register. I couldn't see this so I thought that I would use them myself. The Revell kit was for an Austrian Saab Draken. However, as I have worked for a Swedish bank I thought I would use the decals to do a Swedish one. As I was after a quick and easy, I took the plain grey option with the huge red numbers.

This is the result.

So far I can't say that I have messed anything up - no second goes, no throwing away. Yet again it's a 1/72nd aircraft so I do seem to be a bit luckier with that scale.

Here are the 'snaps'. (Don't forget to double click on the pics to see a much larger image)

Mustang is close to finished

Here are some shots of the bodywork of the Shelby Mustang.

I now have a second kit so I have some replacement transparencies and some spare decals for the rear spoiler so I should be able to complete the model this weekend.

I just wanted to record it before I make a mess of it!
