Wings are done ! Several gloss coats and decals have been applied. I'll polish these parts later.

The foil is a great idea! I'll remember that one! Clean painting work too.

Tip painting on look : applying decals without microsol and bubbles

Press the decal reaaaaaaaaaally hard onto the glossy surface using a wet folded paper towel.

It will comform perfectly to the irregular surface.
