Meng Chibi B-17 “Nine-O-Nine”

I was gifted this kit some time ago and pulled it out after completing a long and involved project. It’s a snap together kit with kids in mind. Felt like an easy ‘clean the palette’ sort of weekend build. Opened up and discovered that the decals were stickers; THICK stickers! This would not do. So in addition to painting, I made up my own set of waterslide decals, based on scans from the sticker sheet. There were enough white and bright colored markings that I had to print on white decal paper. And instead of trying to color match the green to go around the markings; I opted to outlines and cutting the decals as close as I could. Anything else I missed with trimming was carefully painted over with the base colors.
