MiG Alley Banshees and Tigercats





I spent a few frustrating hours with tiddly decals and Tumbling Dice aircraft this morning, the end result being a lot of unrepeatable language and a selection of finished Banshees and Tigercats. The Tigercats took ages, as I had to splice different decals together to make the tail and wing codes, but the Banshees were a lot easier, once I had got into the swing of things. I'll have a go at the Skyraiders and Panthers tomorrow although I may well run out of lettering if I'm not careful. I also need to do a bit of very fine black lining around the canopies before I seal everything with satin varnish, but that can wait until right at the end!

  2. They look great- I didn't put nearly as much effort in to the decals that you have but your work has paid off.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  4. They're from I 94 via Minibits. I also chopped up some Doms Decals lettering but only because I had some Marines decals that were too big to use as they were.
