Thought I’d make a Japanese aircraft. As they looked towards the end. Used hairspray and salt. It’s my first hard-weathered airplane and the first attempt at using salt. Hope you enjoy it! I surely enjoyed making it. IMG_8069.jpg  IMG_8070.jpg  IMG_8072.jpg  IMG_8079.jpg  IMG_8080.jpg  IMG_8081.jpg  IMG_8083.jpg  IMG_8086.jpg  IMG_8093.jpg  IMG_8094.jpg  IMG_8095.jpg  IMG_8096.jpg

Nicely done! Chipping looks good, lovely natural metal finish on the underside. What paint did you use?

Thank you my friend in modeling.
The paint i´ve used is Vallejos acrylic metal color.
First a coat of their gloss, black primer and then a layer of aluminium. The postshading is made with their dark aluminium and the highlihgts in the center of the panels are white aluminium.

Thanks for the info, looks very good. I often use those paints myself but only tried them on smaller areas good to know that you can achieve such nice result even on bigger surfaces!

Are the Insignia decals or painted on?  They blend with the weathering perfectly.

Thank you!!
I decided to skip the decals for the roundels and the yellow stripes on the front of the wings and paint them instead.

That's a really nice job!  I've just returned to modelling after about 30-odd years, and have started acquiring kits ready to go.  One I found on eBay was an old Bandai 1/24 Shinden.  No idea what the build will be like on such an old model, but it was an impulse purchase, I just had to get it before someone else did!

Thank´s for your comments and wellcome back!
The Shiden was a real fun aircraft to build and i bet you´ll enjoy yours. One nice thing is that you can realy weather up a Japanese aircraft since they just slapped on the paint onto the bare aluminium and it chipped like there was no tomorrow. Looking forward to some pictures.
