Just had to remove the canopy. It was covered internally with a residue - I presume from the superglue. Anyone have a suggestion to stop that happening?
Coat in Johnsons Clear first.
Superglue will fog canopies, but what option is there with a resin kit?

Thanks Dave - I have an equivalent polish. I'll give this a go.

Whilst reading about RAF Benson, where the Flight was /is stationed, in Action Stations Vol 6 I came across a quote by HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother who came to be quoted as saying that 'the chopper' had changed her life as much as it did Anne Boleyn's. Love it!!!

An interesting quote seeing as it would have been quite noisey.

Main colours done for the fuselage; the red is Humbrol signal red 174, the blue is Mr Hobby blue fs15050 no 328.
No ready for the detail painting and then decals.

Here it is finished. I had some touching-up to do after applying the white cheat line decal. I'm quite pleased with end result. Finished off with Lucky Varnish - glossy.
