Hi Geoff,

Great stuff in combining that air-frame, scheme and markings!
I find that quite inspiring (i.e. I might copy your idea  ;D ).

Cheers,
Niki

Very cool concept Geoff  :)

Where did you get the Soviet Finland "roundels"?

Perhaps a mélange of  Hungarian star with Finnish roundel overlaid?

They were standard red stars with small Finnish roundels laid over them. The idea was as you say to get the same effect as the Hungarian, Bulgarian etc type of marking.
