Coat of varnish this morning, ahead of applying transfers. Also picked out some front-end detail before adding new wire handrails as a couple of the original plastic ones were missing.

I have left some masking tape on the windscreens so that when it gets some light weathering it will hopefully look like the wipers have been in use.

Transfers applied and sealed with satin varnish.
The varnish gives the impression on the unswept sections of the front windscreens (lucky accident - I had to clean it off the other windows as I had removed the Maskol too soon :oops: )

Well, the curse didn't take effect. Looks brilliant. Well done. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.
