    It looks fine for a first attempt Robert , but the aluminium dope should be more lighter... cheers

    What are you using Rob, Alclad? Nikel?

    Could be if you give a satin varnish over it will tone down the sparkling effect, I guess Marco is hinting the silver was paint on the real aircraft not polished aluminium ...

    I usually put them on a tooth pick and paint them with a small 00 brush while rotating, but an interesting option is to force blue-tack or plasticine through a plastic stencil with your thumb and place it on the hub. I have never cut circles with a circle cutter smaller than 12mm!

    For blue-tac or plasticine, a circle stencil from a stationary in 0.5mm steps is enough.

    Do you really need a stencil? With a paintbrush you can do it easily, this exercise gets you in the habit of having a steady hand ... mind you it is just two wheels, doing a certain tanks would be a nightmare : )

    Robert, a quick and good build, and finished very well. I don't know what you used for rigging, but most materials can be tightened by heating a screwdriver or similiar metal object and bringing it close, not touching, to the rigging material. It works great with fishing line and stretched sprue.

    Give it a coat of dark green overall, then overspray with a lighter shade and finally drybrush with a yellow green and ending with only yellow in small areas ... a wash of burnt umber might help aswell (or some equivalent of MIG or AK products is good aswell!)
