But I need not have worried as the application of the red and gold pinstripes went like a dream. And not the nightmare I anticipated!
I wasn't too sure of the waterslide transfers; the last lot I had - way back a good 15 years ago or more - had red wording but the new ones were in a darkish brown. Looking on the Internet, all the D1 transfers I could find were the same, so they must be right.
That said, I guess it's a personal thing - as I've seen many different examples of D1 petrol tanks - and I'm quite proud of it, as it's all my own work!
Later this week - or early next - I'll be getting the rebuilt back wheel for painting, and then I'll be getting somewhere. I can hardly wait!
