When I decided to do my TF giant P-47 in the "Snafu" colors, I also had no idea how to do the cowl. It really didn't seem like a good idea to use graphics on a cowl that's not round to begin with...and gets narrow toward the front! Soooo...after about 10 hrs. of laying out the pattern and painting, mine came out pretty good...

I forgot to mention that the Snafu graphics are from Callie, she does nice work for VERY reasonable prices!

Seriously?? I noticed in your recent build thread you not only mentioned the designer...you also posted the email address, AND the price of one of his items!

My friend in our club did it. Took a bit of patience, and he had to cut up many of the checkers to match them up at the corners. The end result looks good though.
