OK, good progress with this. I ran off a sheet of decals and have started applying them to the hull. They’re going to have to go all over and my optimistic 1 A4 sheet is looking mightily depleted already. So going to need a few more for definite.
Just cutting them out and fitting them on while trying to keep the orientation of the blocks more or less the same. Surprisingly wasn’t too time consuming to do. But think I will do a template for the engines as they’re are 8 of the buggers.
Going to just keep updating this post rather than starting a new one for each update for this stage.
So Stage 1:
Stage 2: Working my way down the side and onto the hanger bay. Like to do one side and then the other as it’s a good comparison and keeps me motivated.
Stage 3: Port hanger bay completed and front section fully decalled on both sides.
Stage 4: Starting on the underside. Not as much progress as I would have liked and it’s much slower because of all the raised detail. Could work over the little lumps on top but there are lots of really raised parts on the underside.
