Thanks for the comments. Spent the day getting everything ready for the final push: painting clear parts for lights, tail hook, getting the resin engine parts glued, and of course the final gloss coat before weathering. Being in Indonesia access to a good range of washes, filters and panel line washes is difficult. For my last few builds I have used Mig NATO Camouflages Enamel Wash for doing panel lines. My LHS got in some of the Tamiya panel line washes (grey, light brown and dark brown). At 50 000 rupiah (about $5 Australian) each I thought what the heck. So before starting weathering and washing I thought I'd give them a test next to the Mig wash to figure out the appropriate colour to go with:




Honestly I'm still not sure what to go with for the main body of the aircraft, they each have their strengths and weakness, so it might be using them according to the part of the aircraft I'm working on. But for the main fuselage I'm still unsure whether to keep it plain with the grey, or go with the dark brown and dirty it up a little. [frown]

I like the two in the middle best.

If I had to pick one i'd go for the brown one but I think your idea of varying it according to the area you're working on is the way to go.

I  agree with Paul, the brown looks very good. Nice dirt and grime, and not just an overly heavy shadow.

I use a sepia oil wash myself. The nice part is if it is too brown, it is very easy to darken up a bit.

Again, I have been too tardy with this one. Aside from work, I totally lost my mojo with this build. I got to the wash stage and couldn't bring myself to do it. A few hours max of work and I just could not do it.

Not that I haven't been busy though. Whilst the Hornet looked on forlornly, I pulled out the 1/48 Tamiya/ Italeri SR-71 and started hacking away at that beast by rescribing all the panel lines and sanding out damage to the plastic. That is how much I didn't want to do the wash on the Hornet. [frown] What is wrong with me that I would prefer to re-scribe a monster of a kit and polish out scratches in the plastic than finish off such a beautiful aircraft like the Hornet. I think I'm losing it!

Anywho, eventually I built up the semangat (motivation) and got stuck into it. Don't know how well it shows up, but used the Dark Brown Tamiya Panel wash with an occasional light brown Tamiya accent:













Now I'm on to attaching all the landing gear, doors, antennas, pitot tubes, AOAs, and the weapons. Hopefully done soon. Then I can get back to the SR-71 beast.

Wel, I don't know what happened to your mojo but your Hornet is spectacular - very nice paint job! I think you have a winner sitting on your bench waiting for the finishing touches. You can do it mate!

Looking great mate. Making the D at the moment don't really agree with a dog of a kit.

Thanks for the comments. No, I really didn't want to do it. I think it had to do with the panel lines. They looked too shallow so I thought I had a difficult path ahead. In fact, surprisingly, the panel wash took really well and it was a cinch to do.

I take back what I said about the kit being a dog. Beautiful kit, probably more to do with my build process than the kit. If I do another I know what I would change to make it easier.

The one thing about re-scribing that SR-71 is that it makes great practice for rescribing and using the tools correctly. Might start a thread elsewhere on that kit.

Last post before I move to final reveal. This has gone together beautifully towards the end. Everything (undercarriage, doors, pylons) just drops in. Still horizontal stabs to go on and small tidbits, but pretty much there. For the first time I used PVA glue for putting the undercarriage doors on as I'm sick of using CA glue and have the things pinging off if you look sideways at them. Worked a treat. Little longer to cure but didn't have a single door come off through the final build stages.





Trying to make a base for this so final reveal will be dependent on how quickly I can smash that together.

Thanks for looking.[wave]

Cheers!
