  1. Well done, Carlo - especially for a first time.

  2. cool work! So if I understand correctly, Uschi's decals are just grains and you have to paint the certain panels?

  3. That looks fantastic.

  4. Looks very convincing! I have been thinking about a new project with the same decals, would be nice to hear more about your experience with these wood grain decals.

  5. Turned out well - I like it.

  6. Looks great! I just tried my hand for the first time putting some wood grain to the MAT air tail on my Barracuda torpedo. Not quite done with final overcoat of "light orange" clear, but so far I'm liking it. I can see how decals would really help on such large areas like a wing of fuselage.

  7. Fantastic job!

  8. beautiful wood-look

  9. the wood looks convincing. Nice.

  10. Amazing. I really thought it was wood at first!

  11. nice effect - do you mind sharing what you used under and over the decals?

  12. Outstanding, Carlo! It looks GREAT!

  13. First time ? Well done Carlo,perfect work!
