Fortunately, Hannants sell a decal sheet of the exact ones I needed. It was £3.05 with free delivery and came within 2 days. Well done Hannants. So, I repainted the underwing decal areas and replaced the decals. All that was left to do was to fix the undercarriage and propellor.
As usual, I had a small (ha!) problem with the propellor. It has a four bladed prop but the only boss that I could find the sprues was a three bladed one. Where the correct part had gone is a mystery. I sanded off the routing slots for the three bales and managed to fit four around it. You wouldn't know.
Last two jobs were to give the model a coat of flat varnish and add the canopy. I decided to have the canopy closed.

Now that this is finished, I intend to complete the Revell Corvette C7.R. Then, it is back to the railroad for a couple of weeks. I have already purchased the next aircraft kit - an Airfix Mk. I Hawker Hurricane from the Battle of Britain.
I need to get the Corvette finished. It is quite an easy kit building I have all of the chassis completed.
I have also sprayed the bodywork with the Zero Paints Corvette yellow. Even though the plastic was yellow, I did give everything a coat of white primer as I find that yellow needs a white background.
(I have just noticed, from the photo, that I have missed painting the rear view mirrors yellow!)
I should get this finished tomorrow, and apply the decals (lots of them) over the next few days.
