Aluminium base

Post by Starflyer » Thu Dec 09, 2010 3:06 pm

Thank you very much to all for greetings and comments, I appreciate lot.

Just yesterday I found couple of minutes free time to work back on to the model.

I proceed with the painting and cover whole model by Aluminium (Alclad 50% Aluminimum + 50% white aluminimum mixed together).
This will be the base for an eventual scraping (or peeling) at the end of painting process.....will see.

Take a look...

Preshading....

Post by Starflyer » Sat Dec 11, 2010 7:13 am

As usual I prefer start with a preshading in order to fade next layer of colors on the model to obtain a "aged" effect of the paint.

This time preshadin is particularly strong because the very dark green that will follow could cover too much a soft preshading.

Here the paint job of today:

Painting deal

Post by Starflyer » Fri Dec 17, 2010 12:05 pm

Thank you lananda, but I am just a modeller with big passion for airplane.....

So I proceeding with painting job on upper surfaces....

Started by light coat of verde anticorrosione followed by dark green Tamiya XF-27 only on the wings and fuselage....and I decided to use salt technique to get an aged area on the wings, where piolt and mechanics aften walk to make maintenace or perparing for take off.....

Image

then I go on painting with Gunze very dark green H65....

Image


After this long step the salt was removed and you can see the "aged" zone on the wings

Image

Image

Image

At this point I started with the scraping technique.....and I get the following result

Image

Image

The next step will be "point of no returtn" so if you have suggestion, raccomandations or whatever please tell me.

Ciao for now
