    Yet another very well painted rendition Don.
    With all this output I feel a bit of kudos coming on.

    I have enjoyed looking at all your new aircraft.

    Here is my Voisin Don.
    I had to add the extra cross struts because it was too flimsey for game play.

    Been working a couple of Voisin IIIs from Reduced Aircraft Factory on Shapeways. All of the colors here are custom-mixed; the decals came from Kevin of Miscminis. I'll give him a big shout-out for working with me on these; I did have to kludge the fuselage serial number on 8501, but otherwise, they came out exactly the way I was hoping.
    The two together:

    And V589, view to show detail on tail serial number and color shading (my hand shakes a lot, so it's no surprise that the national stripes aren't exactly even. And I've never had any real success with tape, I always seem to miss a seam, and get paint under it anyway):

    And 8501, I'm pretty happy with the decal kludge:

    A nice pair of Visions I like that you've done them a slightly different colour. It's obviously not a popular plane so well done for selecting them.

    I don't know what you do about hand painting a straight line. It has to be about the hardest thing to do. I agree about tape, it doesn't work for me either, although I found it gives a good guide edge to paint up to.

    I don't know if you thought about varnishing the finished plane but it does tend to disguise the decal edges and make them blend in.

    Hopefully see these flying OTT.

    I used a bit of masking tape for the cockpit area of my BE.2s
    Worked well enough for these shaky hands...

    Here are some Russian Voisin III. They are Shapeway planes, Miscmini decals, and Aerodrome bases. It's hard to go wrong using these great ingredients.
