Hello guys,

I'm currently weathering my F-16I and I'd like to make this 

does anyone have an idea of how to make this effect?

Pigments would be a good start Lars. Mig production makes some good ones or you can go to your local artist shop and pickup some soft pastels as in for watercolors nice and cheap then just scrape some off with your blade

I have not used that product myself but they should be similar to what hobbyhubby recommended? try a small area on your F-16 or apply some to a spare piece of styrene? Since I have only been building a short time I have a small spares box, but I did pick up some sheet styrene at the hobby shop to use for filling in gaps and scratchbuilding. Comes in handy for testing ideas too.I usually take a cotton bud [Q-tip] and dip it in the pigment, then slowly begin to wipe it on the model in small circles.good luck.

thanks for the quick reaction Ted, yes the weathering powders are similar to the pastels but more expensive.
Well I cant test on styrene because I dont have it yet.

you are welcome. I know what you mean about not having materials. Before I built my first formal kit after 40+ years away from modeling [a 1/48 Spitfire], I actually had a 1/72 helicopter I used to practice on. At that time I did not have an airbrush and I used spraycan paints. If you don't have a local shop with modeling supplies, you might think about a small scale kit to experiment on?

Yes we don't have a local shop here and the one where I buy my stuff is rather small.
But I do have an 1:144 Revell Tornado here witch I will test it on.

Good idea. Hope it gives you the info you need to advance. I am sure it will.
