Default Panavia joins the Estes Cherokee D Family

Just finished decorating my Estes Panavia kit in Cherokee D decals see attached picture along with an original Cherokee D kit (balsa nosecone) that I built more than 40 years ago and an Estes Viking kit in the same decal scheme. I enlarged the Cherokee D decals 190% to get the body tube wraps to fit properly around the 2.5 inch diameter body tube of the Panavia rocket and hand trimmed the chevrons which were turned 90 degrees to fit the fins. I printed the decals using an HP inkjet printer on clear Silhouette self adhesive sticker paper. When the parts arrive to lengthen the z axis on my 3D printer, I will probably print a conical 2.5 inch diameter nosecone that more closely matches the one in the original kit.
