Really nice Feature, and great work on the model. This is one I have in my stash. I hope mine turns out half as nice. Congrats.

Thank you for those kind words, here is the same model with the meatball icon added, this was something I wanted to do for some time, I saw this once by another builder, and searched high and low for a decal big enough, finally a visit to Hornchurch model show I managed to buy a sheet of them, I reaslise this isn't the sort of thing that would happen in the real world, as you can imagine what a great target for a passing aircraft that huge red eye would make.
