I have now started the part that I was looking forward too and not too. The splinter camo. I wanted to do this paint work for the challenge and sure enough I got it. I am still enjoying the build though.
I started off with cutting out the shapes that make up the airframe like this.
With those cut out I was able to pen out the splinter on the paper like this.
From there I'll cut out each colour and then cut them out of the mask tape thats on a very low stick area like this.
I sort of created a new colour. I was not happy with part of the camo being Flat Black. So I added some dark green and even though it does not show in the two shots... This is not black... I call it "Bleen"
Anyways the first layer of mask on, over the "Bleen" before the light green is to be painted.
Now the first light green on. This will dry overnight then I'll add more mask to paint the Tan and then again more mask for the final colour of Dark green.
How many custom mask areas do I have? This is only one chunk of the work desk holding them all.
