Are the ailerons glued in or are they movable? I noticed they are both down so that's why I ask.

On the current subject I can only add that once you get a clear gloss over the plane don't be afraid to get a little sloppy. Which ever medium you choose for a wash will only gain you more experience. As mentioned above, if you clear first, before weathering, you will get cleaner results. If you go with a thinned down oil wash, without a gloss, then you will have some randomness and tonal variations. It all depends on the look you are wanting to achieve.

You will get the hang of it and Pete is an excellent instructor to follow as his work is superb.  [biggrin]

"Simon no worries theres a lot going on on the forums, i dont get to check out everyone myself. And of-course life away from here too ... What enamel washes do you use ?  and il check out the home brew thinners i know bobby mentions it in a video somewhere"

Steven I'm still playing around a bit with washes, but I find the enamel washes easy to use in cockpits as I don't have to spray with clear first. And I like the effect. For exteriors I'll do either an enamel panel line wash (basically brushing the panel lines then wiping off), or a full pigment sludge wash, using Vallego pigments and water and dishwashing liquid. That's still a quick effective method, but you must clear coat first otherwise you can rub off your paint in the clean up stage. Check out Bobby's tutorials if you haven't already.
As I said I'm still gaining experience myself, the others might have better suggestions. I think the key is to try a few things and see what results you like. [smile]

These are the washes I use, or will be using. I don't use the Vallego washes much (yet) as they are acrylic, and I don't like them, basically. lol
Bobby has used the Mig Productions enamel wash in a lot of build videos, although he's now playing around with Ammo products. They all work fine in my experience. And if I want a sludge wash, I just mix up some pigments until I get the desired shade of dirt. [smile]

Nigel is right. Flory washes are very good to work with. Your build coming along graet so far. I like the Hungarian idea.

I can understand why you wouldn't like the acrylic washes Simon. They dry really fast and I wouldn't choose them for covering large area like your Stuka at all. I'd go with an oil or an enamel was because they clean up easier even after they dry. But that why you want to use an acrylic base coat in such circumstances so when you clean them off your paint doesn't go with them.

On the contrary however, if it were a much smaller plane you could work the acrylics far easier before they cemented themselves into your enamel base paint. Choices, choices... lol

Hey Mike ... the Ailerons were movable but one is now stuck and i don't want to force it. 

Simon cheers for all the info buddy, you've been a great help ... il get hold a some various washes and see what happens.

Jamone yeah i didn't intend to do the Hungarian one at the start, but i preferred the camo so just went with it.

I have a question about the decals though, when i do a matt coat the will tone right down ? i dont like that they are so shiny

Hi Steven,

I haven't used the Ultimate washes myself, but from waht I've read they are very similar in use and result to the Flory ones so you should be fine with them (dark dirt is a good choice for panel lines on aircraft as its not as stark as black) and those deca
S will dull down and blend in after a matt coat too mate

##$*%!!! First I knocked my bottle of white spirit over and then the panel line wash... cleaned op the mess and quietly walked away from the workbench. One of those days I guess. Hope nothing broke that you can't fix.

Definitely the curse, I haven't seen Trevor for a while so i think he knows something, also fluffy has got a guilty look on his face, and a mischievous glint in his eye
