I'm still in the process of painting the wheels and tail. Here are a few fuselage shots though:

I had already fallen in love with the color-scheme. Now I love these colors even more! :D

so you know how to do this. Well, I have a question!

Where do you get the decals from???

I tried to have them custom made by a local decal maker. Unfortunately, they were just not to my quality (nor detail) standards. These decals that you see were made from scratch by myself and color laser printed on a clear decal sheet.

Below you can see one of the many proofs I printed to ensure they met expectations.

It's quite easy when you have the right tools. I use Macromedia Flash to do all my artwork. I had created this piece a long time ago:

When it came down to decal creation, all I had to do was pick off the colors from Flash and print them onto a decal sheet.

Of course the clouds are fake...

Hope you enjoy watching these pictures as much as I enjoyed creating the model.

very nice, :D Will you work on boggies also?

Looking on the sky color, i remember very well that Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 was released with same sky color, later MS revised the sky color as actual sky color for FS2k version :)

Actually this is not the sky color, but just a white sheet of styrene that showed up blue outdoors in the shade :?

BTW, what's a boggy?

Amazing job, now why not build a diorama of a section of KHI to go with it? Would look awesome sitting a real - life airport model.
