Cheers lads. My model has just been attacked by worms, so i took advantage of it. This must be easier to do at a bigger scale.



Well that was nerve wracking, but enjoyable. Can't wait to see the result.

And that's why I love it here with all of you guys lol. We support and encourage each other to whole new levels. Don't be silly Nigel, I'm only as good as I am because I silently compete with you!

I'm pretty sure it's the GW figure painting all these years that give us a leg up though. They are the ultimate in teaching one how to blend highlights and shadows.  [wink]


I think you've got the camo covered pretty well actually. Getting the tac off is pretty easy I hear, but you have to watch out for the residue altering your tones.
Will you attempt some post shading? Perhaps a freehand filter through the AB to highlight some panels? Just curious what you have in mind.

Oh dear a double oops.

I took the white tac off, which contains no oil so doesn't stain. I left a dirty great fingerprint where the green was not fully dry, and whilst the worms were on i resprayed the brown where there had been some overspray. I had completely forgotten that I had lightened it hence the ring.



Had to respray the whole brown areas over. This time i did it freehand.



The brown is too dark for the scale, so i shall let this dry overnight and fade the colour paying particular attention to the middle of each panel.

To answer your question Mike i shall be post bleaching the panels (to give it modulation....the in word at the mo) and then i shall varnish and then wash with Flory's Black Wash, this will highlight all the panel lines and rivets. Oh, decals first me thinks.

At this scale it's very much okay to go over-dark and then tone it back down Nigel. You're on target for sure.

Canopy dry fit, okay.

Decals next and then wearhering and paint canopies.



I just couldn't resist trying it out.



Dornier is too front heavy, as i had to move the base fixture further back to have bomb doors open. Managed to fill the tail with steel bb's via access in the bay.

Thanks for looking.

My workshop will be closed for a while as i have to visit my favourite nurses.

Thanks. The one thing i forgot is that you have to scale the colour by lightning the colour. What looks good on a 1/32 spitfire, say, will not look right on a 1/72 or 1/144 scale Spitfire. It would appear too heavy.

Having seen the photo with the bomber an idea has hatched in my mind. Must do a bit of searching and see if what im cconsidering is possible.

I like suprising people [wink]

Thanks Pete i am enjoying it. The white tac worms didn't work on this scale so just went for it and did it freehand. Must admit i'm getting faster at doing a colour change, the Neo was a good choice of AB. Thanks for your help and encouragement in helping me overcome my fear of using an airbrush. [wink]

Nice camo job Nigel, the freehand work really softened it up nicely. Looking really cool. [smile]
