Give them a scrape with a blade to create some dust

I use an old soft paint brush and a cotton bud to apply the pastel

And I applied them in the centres of the panels to add highlights

Using a few different colours I added a bit of dirt and then with a light, and I mean super light dusting of matt varnish to seal them, do this too heavy and the pigment will just disappear

I repeated the wash process on the cockpit sub assembly
I won't type the explanation I just did exactly the same thing with this as described above

And after matt coat pencils and final matt coat, I did use a tiny bit of silver paint to add more scratches to the seat, but the pilot will hide most of it

It looks very harsh in natural light in this pic, but remember everything will look much darker sealed in the fuselage so high contrast will help

And I even managed to get the pilots hand to reach the control column

I pinned the arm with a bit of wire, you can't see it in the pictures but I have a massive void to fill in his armpit

I will go back and refine some parts where the wash is a little heavy, but remember that you are seeing this under magnification, through the old mincers it looks fine.
Next I think I will get the pilots built and painted, then I had better get back to my Ju-88
Hands are not thanking me for the work I did with them today lol, another hour and I can take some more tablets

Cheers for stopping by, I hope that this will answer the question to how I did the cockpit in the other bomber

Some great work there. Beautiful weathering. Going to try and steal some of this when I get started on my b-25.

Thank you very much Pete for sharing your technique - very helpful and I will try copying it for sure :-). Looking great and thanks again for the effort of explaining this step by step.

Thanks Kenny,

I have intentionally gone heavy with this and tried to keep the contrast high, so hopefully it will show when it darkens inside the fuselage, when I looked back at the pictures again it made me want to go and tidy it up a little bit, but I am down in the cave looking at it right now, and under normal light and through the eyes it looks fine, I don't want to fall into the trap of correcting things so they look better through the lens, I think it's better to trust my eyes

I realise that real planes (even during wartime) didn't actually weather this heavily, but I think the mind expects to see heavy wear and tear on a war plane, and I do like to lean towards the artistic these days, I have a feeling that in the future my builds will look like oil paintings lol , also going artistic avoids a heap of research too

No worries Fabian,

I'm not suggesting this is the only way to do it , just how I got the effect on my Ju-88 build, I use a different technique in jet cockpits

Nice technique Pete, thanks for sharing that. Loved the step by step photos to accompany.[thumb]

Mind you how did you get your miniature dog to walk up your thumb in one of the pics, that's clever. [wink]
