I'm sorry to see the decal destruction.. But I'm glad your keeping on with the bird and didn't smash it. The paint job looks top notch. I'm sure you'll be very pleased once the new decals come in and its all finished.

With the outstanding results in building and painting this plane I can only hope that the theme of aviation won't completely drag You away from sci-fi, buddy :)
seriously, it looks so great, that I'd completely agree with the mention above - extremely easy to confuse and say that You've been doing planes for years! I'm sure, lots of people can only wish their first plane to turn as cool as yours.
And it is sad seeing your trouble with the decals- I'm glad it didn't stop You and You're on the way to fix that and finish this awesome bird ;)

Dude!!! I opened this thread and my heart sank. So sorry MJ. Next time you are carefully pulling off masking tape try listening to this:

Kenny G - Songbird (LIVE)

MJ.......Nooooooooooooooooooooooo! I feel your pain man. Same thing happened to me. Maybe it's a Mustang thing.



If I could fix this so can you. And better then me as well.



Chin up son. That Star Wars theme really isn't too far off now is it? Chipped paint all finished....heck all you need is an R2 unit and some "Streaking Grime" (AK plug) and your off to the races! Giddy up!

Hey MJ,
If you don't have any space to display the plane I guess I could take it off your hands... ;D

That girl is beautiful!!!

Thanks so much guys, it's been a lot of fun. It's been great learning new techniques and a great hassle free build (especially for a first plane!). Thanks again for the encouragement, cheers.
