Sorry for the confusion, I was inquiring about the Aurora rather than Argus.

This was done with Canmilair. The older decals are also available.

Looks sharp. The decals cover the big stuff accurately and perfectly proportioned, its just in the details I'm looking for a bit more. My bad for being so anal!

For example, the rescue device/access markings have been updated to include shilouettes of the devices where they are loacted. They are shown well in this pic of 102 which had a brand new paint job at the time:

Good example of them around the cockpit in this pic:

Charlie, I gather you're affiliated with CanMilAir? Is it a possibility to do a set with these updates and stencils? If so, I'll have an even longer wish/reference list!

Sorry, no affiliation. But CanMilAir is one of the official sponsors of this group build. The owner is also a member here, wmburns. For any decal work, its best to contact him through the company website and/or email.

But... is there a 1/144 Neptune besides the Aeroclub kit?

No.

How hard is that to find?

For most people, very hard. For me, very easy. There's one sitting in my closet - unbuilt, new in box, and in perfect condition. I'll likely put it on eBay sometime in the next week. One went for $70 not long ago on eBay, and Daddy needs a new iPad - however, I'll give preference to any ARC member who makes a reasonable offer before I list it.

my Pinocchio in 1/144 finally here in the correct place.

I changed the angle of the engines(they were too nose-up) and repaced the skinny wheels with spare box ones. It is a lot easier to fair in the nose in this small scale.

Exhausts are contrail tubing, my antenna on the belly didn't work great

Lower colour is a mix gained from the old Argus Hobbies in Winterpeg;

all in Humbrol #s

#2 Gloss Emerald Green 2 parts

#15 Gloss Midnight Blue 2 parts

#22 Gloss White 85 parts

#40 Gloss Light Grey 60 parts

Good for Argus,Aurora,Neptune,Tracker,Sea King, and Dakota

If you use an eyedropper for 'drops' of paint--you will need 10 times the amount for a large A/C and 3-5 times the amount for the smaller A/C (1/72scale)

Cheers, Tony
