hasThanks Steve!
Those lozenge decals always behave oddly at the wing curves. Wonder if 
generous amount of solvaset would tame them or destroy them.
About the control surfaces... i've already separated them and -back then- 
considered making them from styrene card, as their trailing edges were a bit 
thick (a pett peeve of mine). Perhaps, being the control sufaces more 
angular than originally cast from the kit pieces, the decals would adhere 
with less trouble. On the other side, yes, cutting off the control surfaces 
would probably complicate the whole operation... it's a trade...

    But with the D.I you don't need to cover the front part of the wings, so 
avoiding the leading edge tip curves. Still a problem for the railplane 
though.
