thought it was about time to put some progress on here! I have the new airbrush and so thought i would go in at the deep end and try three new techniques1
1) Pre-shading (looks good but can't really see it on the photo
2) Free hand camo (hard! but looks ok on this type because of the general old feel to the plane)
3) 'mottling' some of the darker colours to get that faded look (I think it is ok but some areas just look a bit like I messed up the painting!)
Loved the new airbrush -and compressor - so much easier witha double action one. Although i did get a few splutters I think this is down to experimenting with the thinning of the paint and the pressure of the brush. i watched a really good tutorial on Flory models on this but he makes it look very easy!
Anyway here are some pics;
Despite this kit supposedly being brilliant (some of it is) I had quite a lot of trouble with the getting the seat in and the nose wheel bay sorted. Anyway probably user error!
have touched bits up since these pics and when I have done the decals i will post some more. Comments and advice always welcome
