That's coming together very nicely Mark.

If I'd have place one of my kits on the arm of our leather sofa to photograph it I would now be talking in a very high pitched voice!

Nice work Mark. How well do the two halves of the tail decal meet up with each other?

I even get to sit on the sofa whilst modelling! Maybe its cos I don't have anywhere else!
