    Hi to all! I'm totally new here, and would like to post some pics of my 1/72nd scale SA Bulldog (Airfix). Any comments welcome.

    Hello Scirocco..That's a nice scheme for a 1/72 model, it looks good for such a small scale...

    here is the real aircraft...


    You only need to add that small blade antenna under the fuselage...

    Adrian, the decals are printed on inkjet decals sheets which are available in white and clear. I don't know if they are available locally but I bought them from the US. The kit is the very old Airfix, and I took so long to finally get it finished that the masking tape stuck and I had to remove it with solvent hence the not so neat window and canopy edges.
    I missed that blade antennae, I didn't notice it in my reference photos.
