I've looked at this every time I do a new -104 (whether my own or the HQP-GAC one) and it is just too much work. But if you do the decals I can do the paint job. The 104 is MY baby.

One last thing before I begin is blender better for making decals or Geopoly?

I think it's preference really. However, I like blender because you have more options when it comes to adding reference images.

CrazyP, you don't have to do every little detail. I posted the large RSV patch to make it easy for you to trace, but some of the finer details will be lost if you look at the patch at a distance.

The gold "50" also needs to be traced too. But don't bother with the long "reparto sperimentale volo" wordmark, I can convert it from Times Roman font.

All of the f**king stars on the nose... :evil:

Oh no need to do a star, I already have those. I was just referring to the multitude of stars that I will need to be sticking on.

You use gepolyo right and surftex right? Personally that seems like it'd be a colossal pain in the ass to do it that way. I've got a couple hours I can use on Tuesday to have a go at it if you'd like.
