BevanBrooks Posted August 17, 2014 Share Posted August 17, 2014 Hi guy's, This one's been sitting on the bench for a while now so I thought I'd continue on and finish it. So many great schemes for these birds it makes it very difficult to choose one so I haven't yet, though have a couple in mind. An out of the box build aside from being fully riveted lead foil seat harness and brass tubing gun barrels. Kit instrument decal was cut and each gauge added separately using micro scale set and sol. No problems. Paints used so far are all Gunze thinned with gp thinner. Washes are oils. Chips are sharp Derwent pencils and xf16 flat aluminium enamel toned down with white oil paint and 2b grey lead. Seat harness made from lead foil with buckles from fuse wire. the were painted Tamiya buff, washed with oils and the edges painted with lightened buff for some high lights. Final flat coat is Testors Dull Coat. Straps added to the rudder pedals with masking tape. I added some extra pipe work to the engine plug as I thought it looked a little sparse taking this idea from a mag article I read years ago. Not sure of the silver I used but more than likely xf flat aluminium acylic washed with black and burnt umber oils and dabbed off with a rolled up piece of rag. The numbers are black prismacolour pencil A 50/50 mix of Tamiya xf22 grey and Gunze H70 RLM02 was used for all these parts. High lights are straight H70.Flat coat here is also Dull Coat. Cheers and thanks for looking Bevan. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
