Thanks. About 'Old Ironsides' I remember telling myself not to do that again, hmmm, here we are again...

 

Landing gear parts:

Wow, that ladder looks awesome...

And the wheels and other stuff as well...

Seems like even the new year is not going to stop you.

That's great.

The paint/weathering process has started. Before continuing to the fuselage, i have decided to do some tests on the wing, it's easier

to correct any errors or cleaning the paint off if necessary.

It's always a challenge to paint large surfaces in only one color, giving the surface an interesting appearance.

So I have decided to put my favorite weathering technique to use, salt weathering.

 

7698-170118124820-128861801.jpeg

 

The wing has been primed with Mr. Surfacer with some preshading. This has been covered with some layers of white primer...

Then the wing was given a spray of water + salt. I started with a light brownish color for the first layer. Secondly more salt + a darker

grey-ish was painted,mostly along the edges of the panels. The photo shows the result when starting to remove the salt.

Next step: A light sanding of the paintwork + future. After this, a dark wash is applied to bring out some of the features of the surface.

Bottom wing - Same procedure...

 

7698-170118124820-12884771.jpeg

 

Exhaust stains applied to the wing...

 

7698-170118124819-128832336.jpeg

 

De-icer edges applied...

 

7698-170118124819-128821671.jpeg

 

The exhaust stubs are scratched to the type on early PBY's...

Wing inner construction in place.

Elevators and rudder dirty'ed up.

7698-170118124817-12879386.jpeg

 

For now I'm happy with the dirty worn look, I'm reluctant to add more before the plane is assembled.

Feathered propeller of the port engine.

The finished upper wing. I have not added the details, panels etc.They might get broken off when the wings has to be installed later.

 

Thanks for looking in: Kent
