      While my situation is quite different, I've had to make some of my own adjustments over the past couple of years. Sometimes that really gets you down.

      ...Try not to let it. Sometimes I fail in that task, but I continue to try.

      When I saw the holes from this perspective, I was amazed too that the holes for the letters were not evenly spaced; I did not notice that before.
      I did not do the holes in my trunk lid. As before, I cannot put a picture in that forum as my pictures are not stored outside of my computer. I'll send one to you; if you have the feeling that it can be shown, do it!

      Roger's 1:12 scale trunk lid.



      I sent Roger a sample of the engine paint sprayed on cardboard. He needed to find some in Switzerland as aerosol cans are restricted cargo and extremely expensive to ship. The blue paint is a sample of the body color.

      Maybe I owe an explanation or two. The holes in my lid are for the emblem. They are larger to suit the tools. I did not do the holes for the letters because they will be glued on the lid. If I find necessary to have them (that spot will be barely seen when the trunk lid is wide open), I will do black dots.
      The primer is just sprayed; it must be sanded for the color coat.
      I'm still not convinced by this blue paint (a VW one); another paint, from Opel this time, is in back order. There are many blue paints available on the market, unfortunately, the metallic content is too pronounced for a scale model.

      I'm sure it would be a Duesy of a ride.

      And most people don't realize that's where that expression came from.
