Dusty's tail surfaces are shaped a little different than the crop duster kit so I used more scraps to try and make them resemble the cartoon. I squared up the rudder and elevator then cut more of an angle on the vertical stabilizer. Once I had them built up I trimmed and sanded them to shape.

After final sanding its time to cover. I'm using WillyKote and the bright colors look great!

For the eyes I used metallic blue willykote. Turned out pretty neat.

I am looking a the same plane, making a Dusty. Just curious, what vinyl printer/cutter do you use?

I have some Chinese brand cutter I got super cheap on Facebook marketplace. It does a good job though!

Thank you very much, have not decided if I am going to invest in one yet. Also are you able to post the graphics of the "Dusty"
