Quick pics after flat-coating with Testors Dullcote to get an idea of how the colours look. Some Dullcote was then tinted with very small amouts of XF-68 NATO Braown and XF-69 NATO Black to start add some shadows and "grime" here and there...

Not used to adding wear and tear in this scale, but I think there's room for some exhaust staining and restrained chips/scratches. Any thoughts/suggestions very much appreciated. Cheers, Ralph.

Ralph ,your piant effects look very good,some chips and stratches will add to it .Mud and dirt are the hard part to get right ,as they are more of a 3d effect than paint .Have a look athttp://www.fototime.com .Its Mike Rinaldi's site and he shares his skills at doing all that sort of stuff ,not to forget Mig,Adam wilder ,Lu and a heap of others ,as there is a heap of talent here .I know i've learnt heaps of them ,it is really a trail and error type of thing and haveing seen your skills with planes i doubt it should give you to much trouble .Have fun wayne

Ralph,

And regarding the weathering that is a JS-2 so you can go as far as you want. As Wayne suggested add some dust and/or mud here adn there and call it done.
