Thank you Malaula.
I don't think that my decals is from the late stash. I bought that kit back in 2006...
Thank you about warning about the wings mounting.

I remember that build, and that thought crossed my mind as well that both are good references for us that haven't ventured down that road yet.

Good day. The fuselage was covered with masks and painted in the main color. The next step will be applying parts from AISM. Having studied in detail (as far as possible) the photo of the original, I found some inaccuracies in the Roden's instruction:
1. The cockade was not on the lower surface of the upper wings.
2. There were no patterns on the floats
3. Only after the second redan the color was red, before it everything was unpainted, varnished with wood.
 4. The drawing in the area of ​​the machine gun ports on both sides of the fuselage is not correct.
Something like that.

It seems to me that Roden used this drawing as a coloring guide:

Love how this one is shaping up - such an inspiring thread.

May I ask what you are thinning your 'Model air' paint with (I'm continually having trouble with it drying in the airbrush. At the moment I'm using distilled water and adding some Vallejo glaze medium or retarder)  :-\
