To get a different effect, the exterior surface was taped where the internal framing is on these doors.
Model Master black enamel was then sprayed on these tape lines.
With the tape removed, the internal framing is x rayed?
The initial spray of the rattle can Silver Leaf indicates the finished appearance. This was sprayed with the Alclad Matte Aluminum to give it a fine grain finish.
For the landing gear I use a combination of Model Master RLM 02 (gear legs) and MM Faded Olive Drab for the door interior. This provides a little contrast and gives them a slightly different appearance and may not be totally wrong with different sub-contractors involved. Humbrol No 11 Silver was used for the polished oleo section s and a Raw Umber oil wash was used. I did apply some MiG Productions Dark Mud PO33 pigment to the tires sides, rubbing off any on the tire running surface. To provide a differnt texture look between the steel of the wheel and the rubber of the tire, graphite was brushed on the wheel to give it a metallic finish. Again, it looks better in the flesh.
