I am about to start building Tamiya's 1/48 Lancaster, but haven't seen any video's on painting and weathering black underside.

I was thinking prime white (contary to all advised primers), pre shading with a true black like vallejo 71.057 then using a 80:20% thinner: paint Tamiya XF-85 rubber black (its not a true black) and multiple very light coats till desired effect reached.

Bleaching is my dilema, don't want to add white as want to maintain the black, would a metaliser help?
I'm thinking that would maintain the black but give a reflective effect.

I'm not the best with airbrush (H & S Evolution but upgraded to include 0.15mm needle set, like the crown head for protecting needle yet allowing me to keep needle clean) so want to minimise post shading needed.

Panel lines I'll play with when get that far, hoping brown/ blacks will show on black

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Try adding a green or tan instead of a white to bleach (olive type green) and you can add dark purples and blues as a shade rather than a black

Thank you very much Toki,

Changing the hue of the black and not its shade seems a great idea, I'll have a play on some card this weekend.
