Recommended Posts

I was so looking forward to this build I found a paint scheme I had never done before for the CVW-11 aboard the USS Nimitz.

The first hurdle I should have taken as a hint this build was not going well was the Black dog interior detail kit it had so much distortion I had to kit bash the detail kit.

 

The worst part was the decals I ordered decals for the unit from Authentic Decals. They looked great but when wet just desitigrated I was mortified I applied Micro Scale liquid decal film to try and rescue them. They were literally like tissue paper I got them on but they silvered I tried laying down some future first then the decal then decal softener but I could not fix them. 

 

So here is the result not at all what I expected too bad the units decals were not made by another company.
