Are you doing just the panel lines in the dark blue preshade, then over spraying everything with thin coats of black ? Flat or gloss ?.............Harv

Yes pre shade in blue. I always use flat black(actually I use Nato black a lot). Always thin coats. I stay away from glossy paints(personal taste only).

No problem guys. I am enjoying the discussion on doing a black painted plane. Basically you can do pretty much anything, except paint it black. Also difficult to take pictures of something this large and this dark. Not sure if I can show a true representation of how it looks, but I'll give it a shot.000_0433_zpsddcfbc2d.jpg000_0437_zps771b6633.jpg000_0445_zpsbd287110.jpg000_0435_zpscd26f807.jpg000_0436_zpsd08be7bd.jpg

Hey Tuco that finish is looking super effective sir! Makes me want to try a "you can have any colour as long as it's *not* black" type finish :))

Onwards!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the comments. I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out and have really enjoyed the painting and weathering process. Thanks again Ralph. I don't think I would have ever attempted this if I hadn't seen your beautiful 110. Hope your 111 is coming along well.

Stunning work on the 110. weathering and finish looks right on the money.

Large models are a tough act to photograph. Using a wide angle lens lets you get in closer but the distortion is something that always bothered mes about that particular perspective. I've found, shooting with a 50 MM

and some good lighting is about the best path and then a bit of cropping in PP will allow you to tighten things up.

Keep 'em coming
