One detail, I notice that your decals do not blend well with the paint job. I managed to find a trick to have good results.
1- When your plane is finish vanish using a gloss vanish (I use a cheap spray on varnish). It needs to be really glossy where you want to put the decal.
2- Place the decal on the plane as you would do normally.
3- Brush on, using an old paint brush, a liberal ammount of rubbing alcool on the decal (I use an alcool based hand disinfection liquid). It will make your decal look terrible but...do not panic, Leave it to dry overnight. The decal should now have sinked in the recesses of the mini.
4- Spray with a dull coat/ matt varnish (again I use a cheap one from a hardware store). It may take you a couple of tries to perfect the technique or find the right varnish but event someone an untalented as myself can get good results with this.

The miniature is from fellow forumite Nick's Fen Edge Wargaming shop on Shapeways, and I have to commend Nick for another great job bringing Patrick's planes to life:
I was originally trying for a police-style color scheme, as supposedly the F-37 is designed specifically for law enforcement (though apparently no one is quite sure what Pursuit Aviation is up to). It came out much more like a racer than I expected. But on further reflection, I suppose if you were trying to sell a plane to the police, you'd try and make it look snazzy, right?
