Here as mentioned before the kit gives you a choice of airline companys. The decoration is all paper you cut it out and cement into position where indicated. I gave the canopy frames and front section skin another coat of blue color from my color pencil set. The second coat really brings out the color. Letting these dry for the night I went ahead and installed the rear fuselodge section and burnished it in you can hardley see where the joining seam is at when you put the rear Airline logo on over the seam it will even hide it more. This truely is a wonderfull kit, It is a shame that this kit isn,t reissued, it would make one heck of a must for the card modler in mind. For tommorow I will add the decoration and do some more burnishing and i will proceed with the stabilizer and rudder assembly. here are the attachments for the night.

Sorry fellas I forgot to upload the pictures
