    the crusader stood up on his feet for the first time today! Smile i gave in to the temptation of try the undercarriage to see the aircraft sit. as one can see the pannel lines wash is almost ready.

    this evening i started the decals, only on side is ready (except stencelling). the decals are 5 star stuff except for the star artwork on the intake. (its too short and it lest me with a 4mm gap) nothing that can't be arranged though.

    Marco i have a question for you.... were the zuni rockets pylons sprayed white or fuselage colour? the part were the zuni is connected to the pylon looks white but the rest looks like the fuselage colour. i test fitted mine and it looks too much white on the model. (still without the zunis attached!!)
