Hi all,

So, I decided to start a new build and nice to see some of you guys had the same idea. 
The build is a kit I won at a raffle last year at Scale Model Challenge in Veldhoven. Maybe some of you have been there?

I am thinking of doing a heavy weathered build. Like an abonded plane. So lot of rust and streaks and dust apparently. 
I don't think its gonna be historically accurate. Just wanna have fun building and experimenting. Just see how it end up.

Here are some pictures...

Guess what the lucky number was πŸ˜‰

Well, that aren't that many parts!

I guess Revell just wants to be sure you know its theirs, even fully build. I removed it of course πŸ˜‰
Oh and raised rivets. Will keep those however! Just like building armor [biggrin]

Some parts of the plane are going to left of. Just to give an idea of a broken down/abandoned plane.

Added a tarp covering the cockpit. Thats a whole lot easier than finding some aftermarket cockpits or doing some scratch building πŸ˜‰

Now that's a really unusual choice of subject.  Love that you're doing a 'derelict' build, there's a lot of scope for extreme weathering there.  Think I'm going to enjoy this one!

Hi guys,

Well, sorry for the lack of update. But I seem to have lost my mojo building these two planes. They just don't seem to be my cup of tea and I keep on moving on to other projects... especially armor. Anyway, so the progress is slow but in the last few days I did some experimenting on the Peashooter.

I started with painting the whole plane in a brown primer and after that I used different rustcolors to create a rusty base coat. Just use a sponge and start dabbing away πŸ˜‰

IMG_2562.jpeg  IMG_2563.jpeg 

Once it was completely dry I masked the wings so they could get there yellow coat. But before applying the yellow coat I sprayed on some Ammo chipping fluid.

After half an hour chipping could begin. I just tweezers and a toothpick. And check out the results. I am happy with it but its difficult to get the proper size of chips regarding the scale.
And then I decided to paint the rudder instead of using the decals. The plane has some cool striping but I am not sure using decals will have a nice effect on the chipped paint. Even scratching the decals could mess all up. 
So instead I painted the rudder in the color scheme like the decals. And of course used the Ammo chipping fluid...

Very nice weathering Remy. Rust effect is great. I've already tried it with hairspray, but the chipping medium seems to work very well. Great you make some experiments... I love to do the same.

Hi guys,weather

Well, not much time left to finish the Peashooter and since I am on a two week break next week I probably won't finish it before the end of June. But I will continue building and keep you updated.

Last week did aided decals and used my hobby knife and tweezers to add some scratches to the decals. Hope it gives a proper weathered look πŸ˜‰

After a gloss coat I added multiple filters and this really gave it a faded look and blended all the colors. Now the enamels have to dry completely so I can add a matt coat and start working on more weathering.
