Semroc IRIS Build Part 22 Fin Fix and Decals
After the filler was sanded just the side with the dent was hit with gray primer.
Then the obligatory white undercoat. Red followed and the two fins were re-glued again.
Looking ahead at the decals:
I didn't realize it, but the rear decals don't have a clear background, but are black printed on a white backing. I would rather of had white lettering on clear, but I can see why Semroc did this.
When cutting out this decal, cut inside the black sides. Otherwise, you'll have a white border around the black box. You want to have the black decal to "meld" into the painted black rectangle.
