Was there supposed to be a link or pic in there, Mr. Mole?

For this build, I built up the fins, as many of the original plastic parts were missing. I pre-printed cardstock as part of that, and those looked pretty darn good - when first built. By the time they were in place, they'd picked up enough scuffs that I painted over them. The pre-printing made masking easy, though. Just follow the lines.

The decals that gave me fidgets were the little ones. The flags and the roll targets. They just curled so badly that I couldn't get them to lay flat enough to cover with something. Slightly thinned Titebond NRND worked some. In a few minutes it would get tacky enough to hold the curl down. Microsol failed me. The bigger decals worked fine.
