I keep looking back over the WIP thread here at how you have detailed this 1/72---fabulous work! I used to do a lot of amateur theater work which included some large props/scenes/painting. Its not what the audience sees, its what you MAKE them THINK they see. When audience members looked at some of the props in harsh light up close they were amazed at the "real" item---lots of fun to see how far you can stretch the illusion. you are a master at it, especially in 1/72!

Cheers Ted, [thumb]

yeah it's an old theater trick, I used to some set design too, great fun ! [smile]

I once did a stone cottage interior for a set and the director walked in and said -
"Where did you get the stone from ?" huge compliment but I did chuckle "I'ts paint lovey !" [biggrin]
Walls are done with ragging and chalks.

This set had some nice features too, working radio, lights, kettle, gas cooker  and running water [smile]

A couple of photos of it and the stove I made from sheets mud encrusted reclaimed plywood - rank planks !
Was illuminated inside to make it look like it was burning with a red light shining through some tracing paper with coals drawn on it etc.
Anyhow, the photos [smile]

Food stains courtesy of Tim one of the actors whom I encouraged to eat his Kebab like a pig over it for that extra sense of detail ....
He looked like a cement mixer ! was difficult to watch.........

I cheated !!

I used felt tip pen directly onto the plastic and then used airbrush cleaner to smudge and streak the ink.
halfway through a couple of experiments on it using AK's Aged Ali as a base coat for chipping later on
walkways and leading edges, Next step is to Klear coat the Aged Ali and redo the felt tip preshade.

I love simple ideas like this [smile]

I've seen the Manga Mechas use felt tip liner pens for panel
lines and others as a panel line preshade and I just thought
smudge it with something a little bit alcohol, seems to ok.

Next cheap and dirty trick is colour modulation with cheap
felt tip pens as part of a preshade, colour in some panels
in the direction of flight (as cheap FT pens don't colour in
evenly) red, others black, yellow, pink what ever, whilst
others are untouched.

The beauty of preshading like this is you can make a right
mess and it could still look effective plus using the airbrush
cleaner to smudge also cleans the plastic reducing the need
for a primer. Also you can't over do it enough to fill up small 
details either like some primers....

Depending how playable it is when applied onto a Klear coat
it could also be used for post shading to some degree. This
could be a nice trick for those without airbrushes and a good
hand brush technique [smile]

The Stone cottage set is fabulous! Glad you popped it in the thread!

Neat trick using the FT markers. I may have to pick that up when I re-do some work on my P-38 lightening! WOW.

Sadly I am not gonna get this done in time,
I am beginning to make mistakes because I
was trying to rush it and I still haven't
resolved the canopy fit either etc. etc.

I will continue with it though and finish it,
anyhow, best of luck to everyone else [smile]

I'm working towards a worn version of this scheme
