This is really lovely so far, I am really looking forwards to seeing how the overpainted roundels come along!

gonna try to simulate overpainted roundels

 

they were painted out by the British before delivery with British paint.  and red stars applied by the British then. 

The profiles showing them overpainted are cobblers.  There are photos showing this procedure

That´s right, the Brits did all the painting with their paints. My dad tried to give it a darker freshly painted look. IMO it turned out a bit too dark, should have been more subtle, but he won´t repaint it now. Let´s see how it looks after washing.

With my father´s experience, no problem there, except some days progress lost.
