Thank you for the kind comments.  I tried to do a little weathering but it doesn't really show in the photos.  I tried panel bleaching, and a wash in the recesses of the control surfaces, wheel wells, and landing gear.  The kit has raised panel lines so I wasn't sure how to make a wash work with raised panel lines and details.  Wish I had tried my hand at post shading and some streaking with oil paints.

Raised panel lines are difficult to bring out. I can see color variations. Weathering "grey" or light colored planes is always more of a challenge. If you have a pin vise or carefully using the back of an xacto blade you can scribe very light lines up against the raised panel lines. Then when you do your wash some of it will be caught in the small grooves. Bleaching is easier when the base color is a bit darker. you can also take the base color and add a drop or two of a darker color, then do some post "shading" to bring out a few random panels. I think you did a great job myself. Not too much. A good clean build and finish. Great to start. I always overwork my paint and foul it up! you took the better road IMHO.

Nice looking model, it is clean but the paintwork isn't dull or flat 👍
Hope my first build after a long break is as good

The model actually has a flat finish. For some reason the model in the photos shows more of a satin finish, not sure why.  Looking forward to seeing photos of your build.  it feels good to get the first one finished.  it makes you excited to move on to the next one.

Thanks

most likely due to type of light?
