Hurrah, I did sleep well last night, got up at 06.50 am, which for me is a lay-in!  Onto the kit, and guess who’s made an unwelcome reappearance?  My friendly neighbourhood ghost seam.  Ghost?  More like a bloody poltergeist! Oh well, sod it, it’s a panel line now.

So, started the weathering with the invasion stripes.  I wanted to keep these pretty clean, so as to depict it as it would have appeared on D-Day itself, freshly painted.  To that end I just used a light touch of Tamiya grey panel line accent, just to give the lines a little definition.

Next, for the top surface, good old Flory dark dirt wash, being careful to avoid the stripes.

For the black parts I custom mixed a 50/50 batch of Flory grey and light washes.

Time for a coffee and a chocolate Hobnob.  For our colonial friends, that’s a type of cookie.  Ã°Å¸Ëœâ€¹

Years ago I used to sit up most all night and work on models. So quiet, peaceful. You can think. No phone calls, etc. I visited London for a week in 1994. I was schooled before the trip about cookies and biscuits among other things. Totally enjoyable trip, except for the flight. Cheers!!

No, it didn’t take me this long to swallow a coffee and a Hobnob, it’s taken me this long to write and post this update!  So, the wash is off, top and bottom, and looks as I had hoped, with the bulk of the airframe looking a bit used, but the stripes looking fresh.

m_20191016_113450.jpg  m_20191016_113509.jpg 

A bit more weathering, with some engine oil, streaking effects and grease from AK, plus some exhaust streaking, using a mix of Tamiya sea grey and sea blue.  This was followed by a few coats of Winsor & Newton matt UV varnish.

m_20191016_120822.jpg 

Then came the scary part, the canopy unmasking.  It took ages to mask all those separate window panels, and it took a fair time to unmask them, too.

m_20191017_123230.jpg 

There was some residual gunk from the Montex masks, but this was removed with some enamel thinners on a cotton bud.  The glass itself cleaned up quite nicely.

Then I realised, after unmasking, that I had forgot to paint the copper colour on the front of the engine cowling.  For the right colour, I wanted a more dirty, used look than bright copper itself, so I mixed up some Tamiya copper with some Mr Metal iron till it looked about right to my eyes.

m_20191017_133922.jpg 

Okay, I was a bit lazy here, and couldn’t be bothered with masking everything up again, so I decided to just brush paint them instead. 


m_20191017_140432.jpg 

Undercart next, and fitting the wheels to the legs posed no dramas.


m_20191017_144155.jpg 

Had to open up the locating holes in the wells a little, before the legs would slide home securely.  The bracing struts were then attached with c.a. for strength.

Nose wheel soon followed.

And she stands!  And she’s not a tail-sitter either, though with close to 100 gm ballast she shouldn’t be.

m_20191017_160439.jpg  m_20191017_160449.jpg  m_20191017_160457.jpg 

Can’t do much more tonight, I’ll be watching the Flory Models live show, so the last nif-naf will be done tomorrow, followed, fingers crossed, by the reveal.

Beautiful. She is almost ready to fly, unless you’ve already taken her for a spin. I fly my planes around while making plane noises. One eye closed seems more realistic. Lol

Hi Ted... can I do the same with tanks... 😊😊😊[/QUOTE)

to some extent. Bob did a tank video here on Genessis that shows tank weathering. I know he showed a pin wash and some oil work. Tank weathering and airplanes are two different animals. I suggest that you watch his videos for the tank(the weathering part) as well as one of his jet videos (the weathering) to see the similarities and differences. The weathering videos will be past the videos showing application of decals. It will take a quick look at the last 3(?) or so videos. Or you can google “weathering a model tank” or “weathering a model fighter jet” or something similar. I watch videos all the time—more than TV shows. I have looked up videos of scale modeling builds for most all the models in my stash. Takes a bit of work to find the best builders that do a series in 1-5 parts. Of course, Bobs step by step videos cannot be beat. If you want to see the weathering work, it’s fairly easy to find in Bobs videos and maybe even faster from a set of 1-5 videos from another builder?? It ALL works together.best wishes.
