Gargrot made half open so that the hold could be seen.

The Volume of Masking you have done has paid off in a beautiful paint finish on your Model! Everything looks gorgeous! Cutting out the upper section and making framework to enable all to see your interior work is a Brilliant Idea!

There is some fantastic work going on here, and the wood and fabric tones are brilliant! I would think this subject is even more difficult to make this beautifully in such a small scale... Well done and real inspiration. ATB, Marc.

Thank you.
Yes it's Roden's decals, and I had lucky with them.
I used a decal medium and decal fix from Vallejo.
So far so good...

I never had issues with the late Roden decals...the glossy type seems to work quite good.
The Felixstowe in my oppinion is one of the best Roden kits.
Most important when fixing the wings is to take care of the slight dyhedral of the outer panels of the upperwing to prevent sagging...
the engine support struts are a bit tricky,too.
