Love that streaking camo effect on the wings. You’ve nailed the look Bruce!

Great looking camo
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Verrrry nice!

And the tires are spot-on colorwise!

You may be last Bruce, but your quality is second to none! Brilliant work on that paint work; you've nailed it perfectly. Keep it coming man, you got this!

Next challenge is the one that I do not look forward to... rigging... yikes!

Looks very nice Carlos. Careful of all those decals from now on, when I do rigging I often mess them up with all the necessary handling.

Thanks guys. John, I was thinking about that. I know that I’ll do the clear coat to seal in and protect the decals before I do the rigging work.
