Back to the paint shop.

Time was spent to reinforce contrast and adjust tonal balance. Mostly done with brush and oils. Always in the build-up mode.

The result after a few hours work.

First attempt at depicting the oil spill from the left side window (an idiosyncrasy of the early Hawks)

Did you use silver pencil on wingroot chipping?

It’s hairspray chipping. First time I tried it. I bought 3 mini-spray at 1€ apiece and tested.

AD294800-B830-482-E-A405-830-A92-DFF571.

 

They come in different ‘strengths’. I found the weakest variety (#2) works best for lacquer chipping. It also depends on the chip size you’re looking for. Well worth trying.

I really like the oil spills

In fact they anticipated it because there are 3 TINY holes in the glass at the bottom rim of the left side window which would allow the spill to flow out.

No no, I didn’t try to reproduce them B)

Cheers,

Quang

I can start the test with my wife's rig too :rolleyes:

Let's be quiet. She doesn't have to know that

Thanks

I can find some use with the ones I’m not using. Unfortunately I don’t have enough hair left :BANGHEAD2:

similar to curtiss 75 (drawing), the bottom of the rear window frame on P40B/C and H81, had also nine drain 1/4" holes,  and 6" apart, but fluids drain through only some of the holes giving the impression of only three or four holes

Thank you @waroff, ever so precise with your input. :bow:
Rest assured, folks, we’re in good hands… but how long will a modeller’s confidence last under the relentless scrutiny of Dr. W’s eye? :unsure:

Cant believe that the wings and fuselage where painter before assembly!!! The camo matches up great and there are no seam, glue marks or anything :o

 

Since extra thin doesn't like painted surfaces what did you use to glue the wing on? How do you avoid seeping glue and marks on the paint? 

 

Your build looks amazing
