I have only used this technique on larger scale (1' = 3") aircraft but if done
carefull it could work on a smaller scale.

Draw out the pattern on paper using a convient width for 1/48 scale, the span
of one half wing panel would be a good amount. Photo copy the pattern once for
each colour and glue the sheets to thin card stock. Then using a lot of
patience and new number 11 blades cut out the holes for one colour on each
sheet and use them as spray masks being careful to align each new colour.
To do this it would probably be a good idea to paint the aircraft overall
light biege before starting and just mist spray the colours on.

BTW the Blue on German A/C was a more turquiose colour if you take Windsock
representations as being correct.

Tally Ho and Merry Christmas to all.
