That looks mighty impressive. I've never heard of using the 'hairspray' method. Might do some research into it.

The completed corsair looks stunning aswell well done. :clap:

Looks good to me. I had a few issues with decals from the BBD 1/24 mustang I built for a previous GB. Maybe Decals don't like going onto Mustangs :lol:

Naval Aviation GB Airfix 1/48 Sea Vixen *Finished* 31/12/13

Having had this one in the stash since it was released a couple of years ago. What better time to get it on the go. I'm thinking I will finish it in the markings of No. 899 NAS aboard HMS Eagle.
