Over the Christmas break, i have been able to make some good progress on the Jordan. Though, the decals have been giving me fits.
For a certain part of the car, i have had to resort to painting on the color rather then using the decal. When i applied the decal, it became hard to re-position and it cracked. That was that.
It became to far gone to salvage, so i took the whole decal off and painted the area instead. The blue does not quite match up to the blue of the decal, but it is on a part of the model that is not very visible.
Decal softener would have helped, but i had run out. I will have to make a trip to the hobby shop sometime.
I have started to work on the engine and a few other parts that go under the cowling, but nothing really to show yet.
So far, i am pleased with the results. Yes, the decals have been somewhat disappointing (some came off the paper already cracked), but i have been able to manage so far. At times, you just have to adapt and improvise.
With another week in my Christmas holiday to go, i hope to have the cockpit and chassis put together and the engine in place as well.

Thanks for looking.
