    I don't see why not, so I can move it whenever you're ready. Kev

    That's a shame, Grant. But I hope your health is better now. We can move your thread into the WiP forum at the conclusion of the GB. Kev

    How would YOU do this camo?

    Dave's Emil is the result I get ... after trying to pre-shade. Kev

    Nice work, Dave! That's only easy to do if your hand doesn't shake around like a frog in a blender. Like mine. Kev

    How would YOU do this camo?

    If you go freehand, Brian, I'd definitely recommend John's suggestion of marking out the shapes with a pencil first. Put a small 'x' or dot inside each shape, so that you don't get confused about where the paint goes! See if you can find a coloured pencil that closely matches the green shade of the blobs, so that they're more likely to blend in with the final paint finish. But, I know my airbrush chops aren't up to doing a job like this, so I personally would be exploring the alternatives first. Kev

    How would YOU do this camo?

    My first thought would be to paint the green first, and then form the blobby shapes with Blu-tac masks, before painting the sand colour around them. Of course, this would work well enough on the wings, but not so much on the fuselage sides. My second thought would be to simply airbrush them freehand, but we all know the dangers and difficulties there! I think the best option would be to cut paper masks (even easier if you have a cutter) that conform to the shapes in the illustration, and lay them down using Blu-tac (or similar) to raise them from the surface slightly. This will give you the soft edge once you've laid down the green, but would likely require some touch-ups. Kev

    Mr. Paint (MRP?)

    Actually, their relatively new aqueous acrylic line is partially designed to solve this exact issue. It's brushable, and supposedly colour-matched to the lacquer range, though it's a far smaller range. I tested and reviewed them a while back: https://www.largescaleplanes.com/reviews/review.php?rid=1996 Ironically, the one thing I didn't test (due to time constraints) was how they brush-paint! Kev
  13. Fantastic work, Brian! And great inspiration for when I tackle my next one. Kev
