I sure wouldn't try the flag with all those stripes.  My thought would be printing one's own roof decal.  I've see remarkable one-piece carbon fiber (simulated) decals on model hoods and with micro-set and sol, they hug the curves as tight as the minis on sharp bend.  Best of luck.  Isn't it nice that half finished models wait . . . and sometimes haunt.

The interior of this mini is well smart, body looks like it'll be decent when done too from the start you've made

Patriotic camouflage!  Looks like a '60s rock star paint job.  Very hard to work white with other colors and have clean demarcations.  Kudos on a hard paint scheme!

actually that was quite easy, did it at the first attempt, hard part was working out width of stripes then when laying down the tape on the body i had no centre to work to cos of the cockpit, but the whole thing was big enough to do it

Unless one has seen one in person, there's no way to explain how small they were.  I remember a magazine cartoon where the car had a flat tire  and the driver replaced the wheel/tire with a bagel!
