206 the hard way
Of course Eduard puts out this kit with these markings after I have gotten this far oh well 🙂 It took no less than 4 decal sheets to make the markings for this bird. Some of the font is not 100% exact but pretty close. All thats left is the stencils that were all over these Phantoms at the time since they were new from the factory early Bs when 84 took them on cruise. Pictures show the full range of stenciling so….well I may go insane! I also must say that the Double Ugly decals are very nice, but I dod not think they used an actual 1/48 kit to make them, or at least didn’t try them on one before they released the set, some markings are too big others too small. Oh well, so far so good! DOH edited to add I need to do the E on the stbd side with a bar underneath. Long way to go yet!
