Fantastic weathering, especially on those gear bays which tend to be neglected by many modelers.   What will your subject be? 

 

thank you very much John!

 

that's a tough question

i haven't decide the subject yet.. there are so many options to chose..

cheers!

and after about 30 minutes i give a black matt coat as a base for the deepest shadows

mmmmh... interesting! 

if I have well understood, you give a black layer betwen hairspray and last color? 


I totally agree that on a large scale the scratches should be "real" and not applied on the final layer of paint, but this approach to the shadows seems to me an idea to be explored further, thanks for sharing it.

 

also, may I ask about the green you used for the cockpit? it's really appropriate for the P 47's office, very nice result!

yes , that;s correct i give a black layer as pre-shading.

 

the cockpit green is from the AK Real Colors AIR in the following order

first base color on top of black the bronze green RC264

next RC 230 Dull dark green , then lightly mist the RC 262 on some areas for highlights

after that i am applying oil colors for light effects and shadows 

(burned umber, raw umber, and naples yellow)

 

cheers!

Thats some lovely work there!!! One note though as you have not decided the subject yet! IMHO and judging from the level of weathring in the cockpit and in the wheel wells you should not go after for a shining bird, like '50s bare metal birds, but for a duller, more used bare metal!! So maybe no polish on the gloss black?? 

Anyway i will be waiting for your progress!!!
