Wanted base paint to thoroughly dry on all models before painting on Verde Oliva Scuro 2 mottles & anelli on the Nocciola Chiaro ones. I might have enough left-over mixed paint to build a "quickie" FROG C.202 model though not holding breath here, Humbrol 91 Matt Black Green in particular tends to solidify quicky.

Beautiful job!

Thanks! Using up old Humbrol 91 & 119 enamel tins, pigments are bit gritty but got good results. The Macchi spots & anelli weren't as hard to spray on as the Breda squiggles, many 91 & 119 touch-ups necessary particularly for the squiggles. I still want to spray on that near perfect as can hope to get pattern of Breda squiggles on a future C.202 kit build but must use a fresh tin of 91 paint with a new Aztek .30 nozzle, one am using now is wearing out.

Tomorrow should finish painting undersides of the other models; mask & spray routine same for the other Macchi builds, Breda build mask & spray work will be complicated, will get to it last. Spraying undersides done in stages; Testors Model Master 1726 enamel is fast drying, dripping paint directly into the .40 Aztek paint nozzle works better than using a paint cup, easier to clean as well.
