Wow, simply wow ... I don't know about copying your technique, I wouldn't know where to start shrug.gif

I love the effect of the "ghost framing" you've achieved - very, very convincing.

Obant.

Most impressive as usual Ralph. I wish you would make a video, as it would be really useful to watch! :)

Slow progress, but getting some colour onto the floats. Used a combination of 0.7mm and 1.0mm AIZU masking tape between the layers of green.

Removing the tape shows the cartoon-like result. The bars on the lighter green camo colour have been mottled with an even lighter shade to feather the hard edges.

A bit loud up close...

As always, inspirational work Ralph! The use of contrasting colours and then blending of those colours really makes a huge difference in the final appearance. It does look like you have a step or two to replace on the forward struts. Delicate little buggers I'm sure. Lookin' forward to seein' her all done.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Thanks for your comments Gents - appreciate the interest. Here' a bit more. Kit stencil decals, some water-based Flory Models weathering washes - a 50:50 mix of Mud Brown and Dark Dirt on the blue, and straight Mud Brown on the greens - and some Testors Dullcote.
