Thanks, the covering is some old red Litespan I had, because I wanted that semi-transparent old tissue covering look over the open structures.

The sheet covered areas in the fuselage are covered with Silkspan and dope, and brush painted with cream PU paint.

All registration numbers and letters were cut from cream Litespan (I first coated the Litespan with adhesive and only after it dried I cut the letters).

Seems like there has been plenty of interest. Perhaps you should have done a thread (Or do a retrospective one

Yes, I must say I'm quite surprised and appreciate everyone's comments. 

What I think I could do is write a thread with highlights and tips from my experience building this kit.
It would probably be easier for others to find and it could easily be updated in future and/or include any further discussions on the subject.

I'll write it as a new thread under the "Other Kits" forum.

Very Nice build Erez.  I remember those days.  What fun I had building those model kits!
