Thank you very much Ted, but far behind your racer IMO :-). I'm not that experienced in scratchbuilding but enjoying it very much. Perfect GB to learn a lot, love it!

You are giving my way to much credit Thatmas, but thank you. I actually like the competition part, it pushes me that little bit more to do some extra effort. And seen all that amazing work going on a think I'm not the only one feeling like that :-).

"Thanks! Turned out pretty good. Planing to paint the fuselage in a light color, so that should result in a nice contrast with the interior for more depth. Can't make pics at the moment but I will post the colors, filters and washes I used later... the leather is pretty much one color though :-) Glad you like it!"

So Fabian, you're going for the pink finish hey [wink] [biggrin]

This would be a great opportunity to do a wee tutorial on super fine chipping [wink]
The leather looks like you've done a glaze as well as a wash and maybe some dry brushing ?
or perhaps it really is the light catching it just right, either way I want to emulate this effect
for the seat on my Kugel Spatz [thumb]



"Luckily I'm not participating for this because of competition.. I wouldn't have any change, not as I thought I would have.. stunning work!"

haha Thatmas, he is definitely the man to beat after two consecutive Top Guns and more stunning work like this [smile]
Best we can hope for is a Maverick or an Iceman, mind you, I would be chuffed with another Goose haha [biggrin]
But at least we'll get to learn a lot from the masters like Fabian hey [smile]

Haha, really don't feel like mastering anything, more like trying till I like it :-)

About the leather: all I did was hand painting the pads with a medium brown, sealed it with a gloss coat and applied a dark brown wash trying to creat some stains. Followed by a very thin layer of light brown along the edges...

For the cockpit I used a nice set I recently purchased:


After priming I used flat black for some preshading, followed by the Luftwaffe interior grey. At the end I added some white to the color for a some highlights / variation in the color.


After a night drying time I used a blue filter, followed by light drybrushing with steel color. Also used the sponge tech. on the seat for some chipping. And than: sealing the paintwork with a gloss coat.


Again let everything dry... I used two colors of wash. First a grey one, used almost like a filter over the hole surface to creat some stains, followed by a dark & dirty brown along al the nuts & crannies...


Last step was adding a flat coat (not on the leather) and finishing up with some pigments.


Sounds like a lot of steps and I hope I recall it the way I actually painted the cockpit. I don't have a plan when I start painting. It's more like doing something, look at the model and figuring out what's missing...
Any tips are more than welcome :-)

Errrrrrrrr ! Sorry I asked....err .... lost for words...mouth is drooling. Now that I've finished that cream cake...that's stunning Fabian, the attention to detail is amazing.

You've just managed to make all MY models look as if they have been painted by a 4 year old with an Arfix brush.

Amazing work.
