What an awesome looking build, so much cool detail happening. Love those pedals. Can't wait to see it all come together.

Base coat is on the cockpit, I used Gunze 305 thinned with Mr levelling thinner and sprayed straight onto the plastic, I know it's not necessarily good form not to prime parts, but I won't be masking any of this and the Gunze does bite pretty well into the plastic.

I know this isn't RLM 66 (I do have that colour) but I want this a bit lighter as even with all the glazing in the nose things will look darker when it's all sealed up, and I want to avoid the dreaded "black hole" look

Before I can do any weathering I need to sort out the details, I sanded the tops of the fuses ? On the cockpit bulkhead to expose the plastic underneath and highlight them a little bit, I have to see if these need to be a colour so will do a bit of research later

Next, start picking out the details, I'm using a bit of artistic license here
20150211_185710 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Everything looks very "flat" and toylike at the moment, things aren't helped by the fact the Gunze paint has a semi gloss finish, but this will help when I come to add the wash, the later stages and a flat coat will bring it all to life

More detail painting, that grey instrument has a decal that needs to go on, remeber these are all just base colours at the moment, I will shade and highlight everything later on, the important thing at the moment is to get a decent opaque finish and keep everything as neat as possible

I had a good dig around in my odds and sods box looking for any spare Photo etch, unfortunately being more of a jet guy, I don't have a lot of ww2 spares, I did turn up this though.

It's spares from a 1/48 BF 109, it might come in handy, you never know
20150211_185759 by brundledonk, on Flickr
There should be an instrument of some kind on top of the support for the control column, now Revell did mould one on, but it looked like a bit of flash so I trimmed it off lol !

Look carefully, you can't see it because it's not there !
20150211_190456 by brundledonk, on Flickr

So I'm trying to come up with something to replace it, here's what's cooking at the moment

This is a random bit of coloured etch from the Bf 109 set, I have glued a slice of Q tip tube to the back, and I will fill the void paint it black and see if it looks like the back of the instrument
20150211_185903 by brundledonk, on Flickr

I know it looks a bit dodgy at the moment, but it's worth a try

Nigel posted a link in your group build thread with some nice reference pics if you're looking for them. Looks like the buttons and dials on that back wall are black (at least the ones that are still there in this picture).

Looking really good so far.

Kenny

edit: also for artistic license, you sure are getting pretty close to the colors in the reference. Brain must be on the same wavelength as the german designer who came up with the different colors of the dials, buttons, levers etc. lol

This is the aternative one I am working on, it's a left over from a 1/32 f-86 sabre
20150211_190229 by brundledonk, on Flickr

Glued together and a big blob of PVA to make the glass, I've put this much on as it will shrink !
After this dries I will need to make the back of the dial
I think this will look better than the other one, but it's a little big big, I'll make my mind up when both bits are done
20150211_190438 by brundledonk, on Flickr

But all of that will have to wait until tomorrow I'm afraid.

A bit more detail painting a couple of details and I can shade highlight and weather the cockpit

If I'm understanding what you are trying to replace right, I think it's supposed to be a clock. Or I could be thinking of something completely different. Don't mind me I'll go back to my corner and nibble on some glue.

I did see the link Kenny (and thanks for posting the pic buddy) I will have a good look at those reference pics tonight when I'm tucked up in bed

the earlier version of me did a ton of research when he was a rivet counter , I guess some of it is still stuck in my brain lol, I can remember the colours that the Germans used in the cockpits back then, but I'm not sure if I've put them in the right places lol !

I think you are right mate, I have seen it on a pic of the real thing, but I didn't take much notice of what it was, I'm pretty sure any instrument mounted on top will be ok as it will be too small to see waht it is with the naked eye, I think the 2nd one I'm making will do the job, but im worried it migh be a tad too large, I'll see tomorrow

Update time,

Before I could do any weathering I needed to finish the detail painting and add a few decals

This one on sidewall
20150212_140501 by brundledonk, on Flickr
These 2 dials won't ever be seen again when the flooring gets glued on
20150212_140457 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And this one on the side console is still tiny at this magnification, it's invisible to the naked eye lol

Then a few bits of detail painting
These cylinders picked out in silver
20150212_133224 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I have no idea what these are lol, but I painted them the same colours as in the pictures that Nigel posted a link to in the bomber thread
20150212_132024 by brundledonk, on Flickr
And a few buttons and things picked out in black on the console

Right on to weathering
Apologies in advance for this, it's going to be a bit picture heavy, and I will be at it for a while trying to remember what I did, also flickr has decided to upload the pics in a different order than they were taken, so I will be back and forth editing for a while
Rear bulkhead had the fuses painted black and the small boxes had them in red
20150212_133815 by brundledonk, on Flickr

I want to avoid using black as things are very dark as they are, so I went with this
20150212_133904 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I gave it a really good shake and put a few drops in a pallete
20150212_135033 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I'm just using a cheap No 2 brush but what's important is that it has a decent point on the bristles

Now this wash doesn't flow very well (the bottle I have doesn't anyway) so I treat it like a very thin paint and paint the wash into the corners and recesses and either side of raised detail, and also on the face of the bulkhead at the bottom and here and there, to suggest grime

It's still wet in this pic
20150212_142936 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I take my time with this stage, waiting for the wash to dry then going back and adding more if I think it needs it, going over the same area a few times will give you a darker finish.
Also this Vallejo wash dries really matt, you can see the dry areas in this pic as I add the second application of wash
It also looks like a dogs dinner at the moment lol ! This is mainly because the Gunze paint is semi gloss, but semi gloss is good as the wash won't "bloom" like it would on a matt paint.
Although it looks rough at the moment, stay with me it will work out at the end
20150212_142941 by brundledonk, on Flickr
I keep doing this process over and over until,I am happy with the look, but it's important to let the wash dry between applications, it dries pretty fast so doesn't take long

Application 3 and I'm concentrating on the bottom recesses now as this is where dirt would most likely build up

Once I was happy with it, I gave it a really light coat of matt varnish to kill the contrast and give the part a base for the next stage
Pencils
An 8b and silver and black artists pencils
20150212_143102 by brundledonk, on Flickr

I used the 8b mainly on edges but also for scratches, the black in the extreme recesses, and silve here and there but mainly in the floor area that would naturally get the most wear
You can see how the matt coat unifies the wash too
20150212_143833 by brundledonk, on Flickr
Next some pastels, I just use a really cheap set, nothing special at all
