Which way up?

The Chinook rotors also took  while in the building

Then, the decals were applied, these go on the underside only, so the blades were carefully laid out and the instructions double and triple checked, cause I have made the mistake in the past of painting the wrong sides of the blades and having to respray.

all done correctly.

Or so I thought. When it came to assembling the blades to the rotor heads I discovered that the Chinook (Not surprisingly) has contra rotating blades. So three of tehm actually had the decals on top. No clue to this in the instructions at all! very poor marks Mr Revell!

Fortunately, with the aid of some micro set I was able to tease off the decals and replace them on the correct side (After they had been setting for 24 hours) and a quick blow over with the airbrush repaired the damage to the paintwork tolerably well.

Then the blades were glued in place

This shot is before the spray over as you can see.
