This is stunning.

Can you tell us more about your weathering techniques, particularly at the wing roots and fuselage sides?

Thank you my friend.

The model is painted with Gaia Silver (laquer) and then used Vallejo Chipping Medium over all the surfaces.

Then painted on the camouflage using Tamiya acrylics and used a wet brush to remove the colour from selected wing and fuselage areas.

Then did some wash with oil paint colours at the edge of the scratches.

Usually I dress my models with BMF, but Gaia silver seems that will also does the job!

Thank you Dio. Hope I can make my Tamiya Spit come out half as well.
