Have to agree. This inspired me to buy the wooden decals for the ZM Horton.

Morris your love them there so easy to use and once there dry and you start to add some oils the colours really start to pop. I've just got a WW1 fighter just so I can play with some more wood decals :)

Mark they look great on the Horton RedRoo did a great job on his.

Have found that a pale base coat of paint does allow you a bit more scope when adding oils, I've just gone over some of the fuselage once again and the colour has changed to a nice dark rich brown.

Thanks for the tips Mustang. I had a look back for Redroo's build, but he deleted all his photos, which is a real shame.

I did do some men for this but there not painted and I'm not 100% sure I'll add them so for the time being there in there box.

I left the front gun as they came as I liked the detail and it added a nice contract to the finished model.

The way I've left it isn't how it would be "as someone will make a comment about it :roll: as always " but it how I like it.

Thats it all done, not sure what or when my next build will be. :greetings-waveyellow: :greetings-waveyellow:
