Vulcan Shuttle - putting on the decals

Was kinad dubious about the idea of using decals for panelling - but they're great.
I was put off by them being shades of blue, pink, brown and grey but they work by being mostly transparent, allowing the basecoat to still be seen and very much just shading the area.
Here we have the bottom of the Warp Sled all done and half the Command Module done to show how much it makes a difference.
Only drawback is that if the light catches it right the decals shine and resemble clingfilm on the kit.
And don't think Matt Varnish is gonna disguise it...
