Looks amazing, especially once it's all weathered. Do you just do an oil wash or is there something more?

Hi Craig,

Thank you for appreciation.

At the moment I used only a light pass with steel wool "00 00" to get the details highlited.

For weathering with this technique(MWP) I usually use the procedure that I show you below only for illustrative purposes: B-25 J  Kit HK 1/32 scale model "Lady Lil"

Hi to all

this is the third update and in this thread I will tell you how I managed to finally close the Mirage IIIc  fuselage

Before closing the fuselage I covered the wings to correct the air brakes compartment which is closed and not opened as proposed by the Italeri kit

 

MWP (Metal Work Panels) technique step by step: creation of an aluminum panel ready to be inserted in the covering area:

After having grouted, sanded and polished the critical parts of the model (radome and afterburner compartment ) I have definitely closed
the fuselage:
