Cobbling Markings - Spanish Republican Roundels
A sort of pet project for me has been doing conversions from the Inpact/Pyro Hawker Fury to its export variants. Many of those interesting types are available in 1/72, but in 1/48, the modeler has to really roll his/her sleeves up. I got going on a Spanish Fury expecting the markings to be the simplest thing to figure out, but when I got to that stage, I found no 1/48 red/yellow/purple markings out there at all. NONE. There were few enough options in 1/72, but 1/48 seemed a vast wasteland. I had to get innovative if I wanted to keep this project going.
A method similar to this will work for any obscure roundel really; you just have to work your way through the problem.
