We all have some projects that like to tease us like that.  I love the fuselage thus far.  Very impressive markings.  Good luck.  Really, you should be able to paint it without too much more trouble.

I have a 1:48 Spin SVA 5. Fuselage is mostly done and that is all. Got 
the flying surfaces primed in white and the undersides in CDL with red 
and green tips. I went to decal the rudder and it disintegrated like the 
Wicked Witch of the West on contact with water. I dutifully sprayed red 
and green on pieces of clear decal paper, carefully cut the strips which 
proceeded to curl right up. Now I am masking and spraying the rudder.  
Got the green stripe too wide. Trying to cover green with white. This 
may have to take a swim in the brake fluid and start all over.

So much plastic, so many mistakes to make. Which ones will I make today?
