Use the scheme of your Diana clone on your Diana Mini!
Anyone who has ever looked through my Lomohome probably knows that the Diana Snowcat is my absolute favorite camera! I ordered it awhile ago not knowing what medium format film was. Much has happened since then and we have become a great team.
When the Diana Mini was released, I naturally purchased it, although I was not so enthusiastic about the combination of turquoise/black. Had I waited a bit, I would have probably opted for one of the lovely Mini clones out there now.
However, I would not recommend fully disassembling the Mini when painting because I seem to have damaged some of the mechanics by doing so and it gets stuck even more now.
