Many thanks to Braillestrike for the personalized decals.

The shiny appearance is due to the layer of varnish for protection before the weathering work that will happen.
We also see the house-made blackout, as the reconstruction of the real one:

The Second World War is actually not my topic.
But I admire the dedication and the meticulous work.
A very nice model.
My respect.

They were the French 2nd Parachute Chasseur Regiment within the British Army which named them the 2nd S A S.

Splendid hobby-style work. BB

Maybe Quepwick actually has unusually large hands. Seems unlikely with the precise detail work he consistently displays.
