Curtiss R 3 part 3

The botch continues

Thanks for kind words.

And You're right Falco.
Never been too good for contests, having fun while making something was all that matter.

As for the Machhi, from the first time I saw this model
wanted to do this one
Macchi M.C.72 - Statek powietrzny - Pojazdy - Wykonane z papieru - Canon Creative Park

This type of camo got one major advantage for me.
When one "thorn" or strip was drying out I could paint another one on the other side of fuselage or wing.

The cheap adhesive paint didn't pay off.
I use some 160 grade paper and on the wing leading edge it didn't stand up to the constant removal of tape.
