    Not really Adrian, Gordon made a brilliant job of them. they went on nicely. The work is yet to come however, i need to fair them into the paint with gloss varnish and that is not going to be easy because of the size of the planes. then there are lots of small parts to fit on.

    Brian, If you have Future or Klear, it usually does miracles in settling the decals down and avoid the silvering. I find it better than settling solutions.

    wish i had the time Steve, I am not finding much modeling time lately. Also they are nothing but trouble all the way. I managed to screw up the decals when i sprayed the usual gloss varnish and sanded down. Had to redo them, now i even need to retouch the paintwork. What a total nightmare. How the hell do you guys build in 72nd scale?!!

    It was a continuous uphill struggle Ray, the kits are only fit for the bin but once i got started there was no turning back, also they are very small in 72nd scale. Not my scale at all but that is the only model i could find of the king air. Thanks for looking.

    Nice to see you back on these planes, they are looking great! All those antenna really make the planes like they mean business and really helps to show what they are used for. They also help add some brightness to the gray scheme.

    Yes Brad, they make a whole lot of difference, they were totally dead before i started fitting in all those antennae. Now they look the part. The big black underside housing also makes them look sinister. No, all in all, notwithstanding everything, they are not looking bad. The kits were total rubbish, everything was misaligned, the plastic warped in many places and also really rough, needless to say the fit was a total mess. So i am really glad they are done.
