With all the decals done and a clear cote to seal them, I could start with the weathering.
So I used black oil colour and some white spirit to give panel lines a wash.
Then I let it sit for a few hours before I started wiping off the excess with cotton buds and some white spirit (where needed).
I then did some painting with aluminium to create a little wear on wings and prop blades.
Black oil colour was again used, but this time to create some dirt and grime like sooth from the shell ejection holes and some general grime.
I also added sooth from the exhaust pipes, removed the masking from the canopy and added the mirror and painted it. And with that I think I’ll call it finished, and will take proper pics later today.
