Passt clear polish laid down prior to decalling. Now RX-U of 456 (RAAF) Sqn. Matt coat of Polly S Flat Clear over the top and then weathered using watercolours, predominantly Raw Umber and Black. Adding brake lines to oleos before finishing with cockpit and gun-bay a/market and then the canopy.

I don't think she'll look the goods until those beautiful spinners are in place!

sets and I think an Ultracast tailwheel?

I like my aircraft "down and dirty" and years ago I discovered washes and dry-brushing but M. Francois Verlinden beat me to the book (ha ha). I first used Humbrol Enamels mixed with lighter fluid as my wash, but moved on to watercolours several years ago as they are more versatile and user-friendly.

Dry-brushing is no secret and I find Humbrol Enamels contain the better pigment (than other paints). Vallejo paints are the best solid-pigment acrylic I have ever used and are brilliant, especially for paint chipping, touch-up areas etc. I use what I call a "wet pallet" keeping the paint wetter, longer'
