Still some work needed but this is how it look right now.
I drew the decals and printed them, and while I did this I also drew some instruments as Tamiya didn't include any.








Here are my instruments. Feel free to use them if needed
The black box should be about 6,5mm or 1/4" long when printed. I hope that it works.

It is a bit off topic for this forum but the kit as such belonged here before I got my hands on it.

I was lucky to find another of the Aöps type of printer after mine died. So now I can go back buildin what I find interesting at the moment. But this time I keep the printing down to a minimum trying to keep the printer running.
The chrome is bare Metal Foil often used by the car modellers.
It is a thin self adhesive foil avalible in different shades/colours. Like:
chrom, aluminium, black chrom and gold to mention some.
When I'm building aircrafts I use it to mask the canopies as it is so thin that it is easy to see the frame work on the canopy.

I have a Currogane on the way and I have some odd plans for that to.
I'll be back with that.
