    Noughts are winning! :lol:

    The model is a well known Fine Molds kit. I added Part photoetched parts and Techmod decals.
    My model reflects an aircraft of Stab I./JG3 flown by Hans von Hahn in the summer of 1941.

    Excellent job, especially for that scale. I'm glad you posted how you did those circles because I was going to ask.

    Excellent job, and like Andy, I was going to ask how you did the circles. Very nicely done, and a good solution.

    Thanks guys for your positive reception.
    It was simple: on white painted spinner I applied a strip of masking tape (about 0,3 mm wide), and then painted a green colour. However it took two approaches cause first spiral get an irregular edges (some glue from masking tape gathered on the edges), and the spinner had to a wash up. I used blue PVC masking tape (3M). The "paper" Tamiya tape is not elastic enough to make tight spiral on middle.

    Anyway, this model got a riveting on all metal surfaces. On the photos some of the rivet rows are visible on the horizontal stabiliser or in front of the coolers.

    Superb.!
    Circles are made by Tack-it adhesive? (correct me if I'm wrong). It had to be a challenge!.

    Correct! I used Tack-it equivalent called UHU Patafix. It took two evenings of work, one for each side.

    Just had another look, when I realised this is in 1/72nd scale - I thought it was good,thinking it was 1/48th scale, but in 'Tiny Tot' scale, it's fantastic !
