I like some of the simple things, like the wood effects on your flooring.

Your PE work and weathering is amazing....................to top your build is going to take something extra special!!!!


Thank you, I like the wood effect too. First time I tried using oil paint and a flat brush. Super easy and effective 👍
I think I went to heavy with dirty up the the seats but won’t change it.

I think the weathering on your seats is probably correct. Most B17's flew from the UK.............

It's nearly always wet and raining in the UK and mud gets everywhere.

They probobly flew from Concrete runways, but not all the dispersal areas would have been concrete (so many aircraft from USA and no proper space to store them).

So crew getting to aircraf would be dirty with mud and other debis.

the yellow of your seat covers is a bright clean, so it would quickly look dirty

I have to confess the dirt on the seats seems a bit to dark to me too,
a light wash over the top may resolve ........

But once it's all closed it may help them to stand out a bit better [wink]

Further to Choppa's comment, maybe a brown instead of the black would look better, but the heavy staining would be evdent on yellow

I would like to show you a picture of a coat I washed yesterday, but thanks to my two puppies, its covered in dried English mud:

IMG_4198[1].jpg 

I don't live in a clay area, this is just normal soil mud, but it tends to dry yellowish (it's not quite that yellow, more brown.......Iphone 7 camera). From most my experience of mud in the UK its all same (maybe some is more brown).

I've added this just as a reference to what UK soil does as dries

I guess that is why companies make pigments and washes specific to countries? Not all dirt is the same!

It goes on black/dark brown yet dries a yellow brown

Ted,
We can think of dirt in our area as unversal...............all is the same.

But it is unique, most of the USAF aircraft that attacked Germany were based in in the UK

I have total respect for those aircraft crews, they flew daylight raids and were raped by Me109's and FW 110's

But our soil is dark brown to black, yet it dries a mid brown.....yellowish

I know this from my job, with a wool carpet you let it dry and the brown dust just disapears off a wool carpet

Actually soil dirt is very changeable across a given area, just ask a farmer [wink]

Thank you very much for your comments guys, including a 1/1 dirt sample - you’re great! I already closed up the fuselage but still should be able to get in there with a brush. Let’s see if I can simulate some dried up light dirt 😊

The map was actually an easy fix. I cut out a little paper pice and scribbled some lines on it with a pencil. Then folded the little pice a few times - done. You’re mind is making it look like a map because it expecting to see one 😊

And yes, definitely 1/72 scale, or very VERY big hands, lol. There is the 1/32 HK models kit out there, must be enormous!

Thanks, I'm not sure I would go to that length, but then again...

Painted up the 4 bombs the kit provides. The sharp fins are nice PE by Eduard...

I tried the salt technique on them and it worked fine. First I sprayed them yellow, masked the (not so) thin line and sprayed everything in a dark green. After some drying time and a gloss coat I gave them a quick bath and sprinkled them, still wet, with salt. Quick coat with a lighter green shade and they are done. Happy with the result.

Also started working on the wings. Again nice additions from Eduard. Then I was brave and started cutting into the plastic to make room for the flaps - that is the easy part. I do like the PE flaps but they really testing my patience... and still one more to go [frown]
