Enterprise-C - 99% done

After a layer of varnish (Alclad II semi-matt), it was finally time to place the decals. They had turned yellow over time, so I tried an old tip I read once, to remove the yellow : tape the decal sheet to a window and let the sun do it's work. This didn't change anything, but maybe it would require a summer sun and not the grey light we get these days.

The 1% remaining is sealing in the decals with another layer of varnish, but I was anxious to show the results :-)

A picture of the underside shows where the kit was damaged and I performed repairs. It's still obvious, but I'm happy with my work.

Except for the yellowing, I'm still content with the quality of the decals.
