2873.jpg A photo by the photographer David Duncan Douglas of a Corsair on Okinawa - I thought it was interesting to see just how filthy these planes got... and if someone had posted a model with this weathering, what comments would be made about it being overdone 🙂

Never too sure what's going on with the tailplanes in that spitfire shot?

If you want to build them dirty, there is ample photographic evidence....at least of WWII aircraft....to back up your desires.

When the pundits say "it's overweathered....", what they really mean, deep down is:  "I prefer to build my models cleaner than that, and by doing it differently, you are failing to validate my choices and directly threatening my sense of self worth.  Stop it immediately."

LOL

But, you will notice that not even these impressively filthy machines have a neatly-applied streak of slime which uniformly follows every single panel line on the airframe. That’s the current model finishing fad that makes me think “overweathered.”
