I recently posted some color video of WWII Japanese trucks. (h/t Jeff “Inch High” Groves)

Today I came across this amazing build.  Even though it is in devil scale, it is just fantastic.

Dora Wings is releasing a CH-400.  The Marines bought exactly one of these, yet, I am a sucker for Yellow Wings markings.

Airfix MiG-17 #11 Weathering

Previous post here.

The MiG has the decals on and has entered the weathering stage.  I start most of my aircraft weathering,, with a panel line wash, or sludge wash, mad with low odor mineral spirits and tube oils.

Here is the tops side after I’ve applied and removed the wash.  I used a combination of Burnt Umber and Black.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the underside with the wash applied before removal of most of it with a Q-tip.  Always remove by wiping the Q-tip in the direction of the airflow.  The wash is a combination of blue, black, green and a touch of yellow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, here is the underside after the wash has been removed.
