These three are from last year. Doing a lot of photo shooting taday, so here they are. All paint is Pollyscale.

First up is the Eduard Yak-3, Normandie Nieman, with markings from the box. Spinner is hand painted, as I couldn't figure out how to mask it:



Next is the excellent Zvezda La-5, with very old Aeromaster markings:



Finally is the La-5FN converted to a -5F with the AML resin bits and decals:

first nice builds!

the easiest way to paint and mask the red white and blue spinner is like this..

1. Paint the baby blue on the tip and let that dry..

2. use a very thin strip of tape and mask where the edge of the blue will meet the white the tape will not be able to lay down flat though - you don't need to just do the one side. I then use parafilm to mask the rest of the blue colored spinner.

3. paint the white color - but remove the mask before it drys (avoids the paint cracking along the mask lines). Then repeat the masking where the edge of the white will meet the red.

Pain in the *** but that's what I do when I have a curved surface that needs to be masked - go from the narrower parts and move backwards.

It does work though
