    Trumpeter 1/72nd An-2

    This is Trumpeter's An-2 finished with the kit decals. I made the silly mistake (following the kit's instructions!) and placed the Polish roundels on top of the wing. A Polish modeler pointed this out to me and in fact no Polish AF aircraft ever carried roundels on the top surfaces after WW2. I will try to remove them but since the colours are my own mixtures, I'm afraid that I will need some retouching and the colours won't match. This is one of the earlier Trumpeter models and is not up to their current standards, but still quite good, especially at a very low price it usually sells.

    Quite an interesting scheme, well done. As for the polish insignia on the wings, I doubt that it will be possible to remove them without causing serious damage, especially if you used setting solutions and varnish sealed. The only favourable thing is that they have only one colour underneath them.
