Weathering your Heinkel

Recommended Posts

I don't know, I try to keep my Heinkel pretty clean. Oh, wait...:)

Nice pics, Gaz! Despite what they say about the planes not lasting long enough to get too weathered, it is obvious it didn't take long for fading, wear from service and repair, and fuel and oil leaks. Good reference!

I do wonder if the stencils show up so bright due to 1940's high contrast film? Wish they handed out more color film in WWII.

Just because it's niggling me that I can't figure it out, can anyone say what the dark object beside the port rail of the sliding canopy hood is?

Very sharp image, you can see the faces of the crew and reflection of the higher aircraft in the top gunners window!... that’s a clean window, I wonder how they kept them so shiny, just me being me.

Looks like an open window hatch. There were 2 of them there.

 

 

Thanks. I knew about the window there, but the upward swinging hatch is new to me.

I agree they tend to be way over done but there are panel lines visible in spite of the very dark colors.

WIth black 2' borders on either side?   

 

Don't think anyone has issues with highlighting panel lines, it's the silly "preshading craze where each and every panel line is slavishly outlined with a thick black border.   Hence the checkerboard or "plaid" look.

I wonder if it's not on the plane but dirt on the camera lens of the plane taking the picture ??
