Greetings all,
This is my latest build from a Blitz Build participation group I was invited into  - I assembled it in in-flight mode to save time.
The stand is a handle from an old Tamiya branded model paint brush after the bristles were worn down.
Being a Blitz Build I was not expecting any pristine finishes i.e; decal settling, damage to painted surface, fingerprints; etc
I am now contemplating a prop blur setup for the spinner 

Cheers

A worthy tribute to your old paint brush. What did you use for paint?
The Propblur is a cool idea. I still have trouble separating the metal from the fret and protective plastic. I even tried keeping it overnight in the freezer, as per the manufacture suggestions, to facilitate the process.
If I do another one, I might borrow an idea from Fotocut and soak the whole business in acetone until the plastic detaches away.

I used plain spray pack lacquer paint with near matching colours for quick and durable finish.
My prop blur will not be aftermarket but more a theoretical process using clear plastic packaging and clear sprue off-cuts
