With the panel lines and Hovercraft decals applied, the Ore Carrier is nearly done.
The final hurdle looks to be the "45"'s that are to the rear of the tanks - its looking very likely that they're Letraset dry rub numbers, or maybe they're kit decals.
Either way, i'll be darned if i can narrow the search down.
So i'll be sticking the engine section on next and then i'll be weathering.
It looks to me that Mat Irvine's clock was ticking when he made the original as it seems that he's kept it to some squirts of black.
I'm not going that route, but rather the pastels one.
And, when i do get me some 45's, i'll put them on then.
