An excellent pair, Barry and I especially like the paintwork on the Ventura - is the demarcation between the upper and lower surfaces freehand sprayed?

No, I used Tamiya tape to mask, but laid a thread under the tape (about 1.5-2mm from the edge) to lift it a little and allow the soft edge demarcation.

Oooh - that sounds interesting. I might try that.

indeed a cunning plan. Thanks for the tip.

Love the Hare too, not a type we see very often.

The Ventura is very pretty. The thread+tape idea is duly stolen. The Mil is less pretty but still a very neat little model ;-)
