I spent much more time on painting and fine tuning this model than on building it. That's how it always seems to go. Maybe I'll take a different approach someday: build with great care; paint quick and dirty. Or not, as I most likely would be bugged to death by a tiny mispainted detail.
Let it be said that this was a fun plane to build. My endless hate of decals didn't get any lesser with this one, but maybe with the next plane and a (even) newer approach that can change. Most likely it won't, I fear.
Here's a random pile of photos with a weird background. Couldn't think of anything more fitting, anyway.
