The results are fantastic. I always like to see how people use different techniques and compare the results.

Paints don't stick well to silver so thats the idea. Spray floquil old silver undercoat. Thin where you light chipping and heavy where you want heavy chipping. Spray the model as usual. After it dries press masking tape to the areas you want "chipped" and peel. Start with low tack and repeat until the desired effect is reached. Use a higher tack tape if your not getting enough effect. Play around with it and you'll be fine. Specific areas on mine like the wing roots and access panels were drybrushed with old silver. Good luck

The weathering was done with black pastels rubbed into detail areas and panel lines with a stubble brush. Then sealed in with floquil flat which is really semi flat/satin good for Luftwaffe a/c. Exhaust was airbrushed with heavily thinned (about 90/10) black paint. Repeated applications at low low pressure until the right density is acchieved. It takes alot of coats this way but it helps minimize accidental over application and overspray.
