    Get my hand on an extra discounted Yak 1 box so I decided to proxy them for the Yak 3 beta card.

    The winter camo was a pretty obvious choice for me but I ended with two too contrasted greys.
    The light one was too light and the dark one too dark :/

    I decided to airbrush a dark wash on them to try to tone down the contrast.

    It seems to work and provide a really weathered look but I’m not really sure if I’m ok or not with the result.

    I can either go forward or give them a Glanzer bath, no big deal, the paint job is really quick. The longest part is the camo masking.

    Any advice is welcome.

    Mosquito squadron completed as I get the decals earlier this week.

    I finally decided to strip the mast Yak’s squadron so it get back to the WiP state as some extra squadrons:

    The Spitfire Mk IX and Dora

    The Beaufighter and the Me410 with pre-marking in progress

    The Kates are delayed due to specific paint job with various schemes within the same squadron.

    Also, I will use the Aces’ minis from the first wave all-in as a project to learn painting skins.

    It took a while as I had serious hiatus in my painting but finally 4 squadrons finished (the Beaufigthers’ one hide somewhere so I forgot it when going to the wash step. Should be finish soon).

    Me 410

    Spitfire Mk X
    Obviously “le groupe de chasse Alsace” lead by Pierre Clostermann

    Yak 3 (proxy-ed by Yak 1)
    I had no choice but to make it “le groupe de chasse Normandie-Niemen”

    And finally the Doras

    No plane this time but the aces’ minis.

    I blatantly mimic the studio colors, including the bases figuring the pilots’ flags.
