Finito. After the Memphis Belle, this was a nice easy build & a nice change from planes.

May drill a hole in it & stick it on a base in-flight yet (though of course the drooped blades won't be right then).

Yup, and what's more my wife likes the colours in the cabinet, better than messed up camo schemes apparently :D

Decided in the end not to flat coat it as the current gloss coat is closer to the real thing.

What I have noticed about Italeri decals for Aussie aircraft is the roos tend to look more like wallabies, kind of chubby. Nice build too.

Like it. I think the comment on chubby roos is right and a hangover from ESCI - they started it! I have a few of their kits I built years ago with pregnant wallabies that are now annoying me...
