Fancherello

Tamiya's 1/32 Mustang and Corsair, both B&W

Recommended Posts

Beautiful work Fanch....although the photo's are messing with my brain!

 

By brain tells me I am looking at something in B&W then I see colour in the background....weird but very very cool at the same time.  Getting that sensation tells me you got the technique down perfectly!

 

Well done

Looks great Fancherello. Can you tell me how you painted the wing?

Base coat is Tamiya's new lacquer silver paint, then nsome hairspray

I've been using four shades of grey based on Gunze's H69 and black. I've textured the paint with Ushi's and Radu Brinzan's splatter stencils. First with larger blotches then as i was reducing contrasts, i went for thinner and crisper patterns. 

I've added a few wind streaks by whipping the wings with some airbrush fine lining.

I tried to use not too use contrasted grey to minimize the use of blending mist for final adjusting. The splatter stencils dont need much contrast to have the effect show up due to the hard edge demarcation.

 

Next step will be challenging: i'm keeping as close to the pic ( previous post) as possible and almost no chipping is visible at that distance ( apart in the wing root shine ). So my chipping will have to be visible only on close up.

Man that is cool!

 

Love the yellow, it's even hard for the eye to pick up the subtle tones you have there.

Hi and thank you !

 

I'm honestly glad you said that: i really look for subtle and second reading effects for that cowling. I restrain myself alot on weathering and artefacts to try and stick to the original pic that i put a few posts before !

More generally, even though i enjoy all kind of contrasts for watching, i like my models to have subtle light/shadow modulation ( whuch doesnt mean weathering to me ) effects

You really do make it look easy! Inspired by your build, I brought a box set for black and white from scale color, but I know it takes much more than having the paints to really master the effect you've created here...... absolutely incredible and I'm loving every post!

Fanch-

 

I have to tell you that your work here is impressive. While I do not completely understand the point of this exercise, it does not stop me from admiring what is obviously some cracking work going on. I have developed some color vision problems over the last few years, so I find that like some of the other fellas have mentioned above, your photos mess with my brain a bit!

 

I am looking forward to seeing what the end result looks like! Excellent work!
