Well I masked it (did I mention I hate masking?) and painting has commenced.
I have come up with a scheme which should please Eric.   ;)

It's all red, blue and yellow?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

With, if the masking works right (did I mention I hate masking?) white separators.
Was there ever an airforce with red, yellow, and blue roundels?

Romania, but their use of roundels is a bit too modern for the Labradors era I think...

But before they used pure roundels they had a small roundel inside a yellow and blue cross...

I like their roundel, Also too modern but I'm sure you can make up a backstory for it.

Romania used roundels prior to it's adoption of the cross. Certainly on their Nieuports and early PZL P.11 fighters.
Decals my @r$e!

Venezuela.



Coincidentally  (there are no coincidences - Robert Anton Wilson) I had a customer today present me a Venezuelan passport.  I didn't know (or had forgotten) that the official name for the country is The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.  Quite a few pictures of Simon Bolivar integrated into the passport design.

Their currency is the Bolivar as well. Bolivia's is the Bolivano (and yes I did have to check that one  ;D )

Interesting chap Bolivar

Decals my @r$e!

He had a role in freeing a lot of nations from the Spanish yoke.  Bet he's not popular in Spain.

Painting progress.
