Outstanding job. Are they the kit decals? What application technique did you use? And what about the dark shading - is that some type of wash?

Thommo, I used the kit decals over a gloss coat using the microscale system, that is fist apply a little pool of Micro set from the blue bottle, apply the decal and roll out excess water or blot with a tissue, let dry for approx. 10 minutes then apply micro sol from the red bottle. This softens the decal allowing it to conform to details. There are some good youtube tutorials.
The shading around the control surfaces is just very thin paint applied with an airbrush
Hope this helps
