Thanks  guys,

I'm  a bit disappointed with the results to be honest, it all looks so easy when you watch someone else do it [frown]

I will try the technique again but practice on a mule first to get a better understanding of it.

I'm  putting this one aside for a while, I want to get some sand coloured wash so will have a look at Telford when I go.
I'll start working on the P-40 now for a while.

Cheers,

Geoff.

Yes it is a good idea to let it sit for a moment and come back later.

I tried it once and got a mess. I had good videos to follow and thought I had it down. I ruined a relatively expensive kit and had to trash it. The build is here on Genessis. Hobby Boss Corsair. I was sick.

Hi guys,

A quick update [biggrin]

I managed to pick up some Flory Wash (Sand) from the IPSM show at Telford over the weekend and applied a coat to the underside of the Spit yesterday.
I removed most of it  this morning using dry paper towels and a very fine sanding stick as I think this gives a better uneven, worn look.

20191111_233422.jpg  This is the result, I may tidy it up a little more but am generally happy with the result.

So on the home  stretch now, just the undercarriage, spinner and ancillary parts to add and a final few weathering touches and she will be done.

Thanks for looking [thumb]

I have not thought of using a sanding stick to complete weathering post wash. Interesting . Looks good

Hi Ted,

Yes its needs a coat of clear gloss or matt before applying the wash for protection but is quite effective but you still have to proceed with care especially across decals.
An old worn,very fine sander is best too as newer ones tend to be too abrasive.
I also use Phil Florys newer type of polishing sticks as the green side of these also works well.

Geoff.

Thanks, I will eventually buy some of Phil’s Sanders once I go through the packs and packs of the kind I have.

Hello Guys,

Well after a few finishing touches this morning I'm calling this build done [biggrin]

I want to build some kind of base for it so will delay posting in the final reveal section until I've done this.
I'll continue the thread with the base construction for anyone that's interested.

Thanks for looking [thumb]

Geoff.
