Hi CR, good blog :face-approve:

The decals were always the best bit, wherever they wound up stuck (rarely on the model plane anyway). You could have had old bits of masking tape, muddy hand-prints, Old Shag pouches, king-size Rizla packets and all sorts, and run a photo-gallery of where people had stuck them Big Grin

Hello Dinosaur: The decals were always a pain, you had to float them off in a bowl of water then catch them carefully on a the edge of a butter knife, then place them on the model, by which stage they had become bent over and ruined, then you got infuriated and knocked the model off the table by accident and you screamed and your mother came in and wanted to know what was going on and you stabbed her with the butter knife before pouring petrol on the whole mess, throwing a match at it and walking away as it all exploded in slow motion behind you.
Ah such innocent pleasures.
