Ah, this brings back memories.  I built this model when I was in 8th grade.. and that was.. okay a long time ago.

 

Your build is amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us.

 

Cheers,  Mark

very very nice work. I like it. How did you air brush the camo ? It looks excellent.
 

thanks man!

I bought a basic set of oils at Hobby Lobby. I set up an artists pallet and mixed green black yellow white...and in the end decided green with a little bit of black was the color choice. About 20% black is what i used.
Blue terpenoid and a brush from AK that is already staggered across the edge. I wet the brush in turpenoid and dried it off kind of like dry brushing. Added about 10% turpenoid to the oil paints and dabbed the brush into it. I stippled the leading edge with the wet brush about 1” to 1-1/2” wide. Then dragged the brush across the wing at an angle, just barely touching the surface so the streaks would be created by the edge of the brush. The more oil paint i put on the brush the darker it was. I looked at picks to try and get an idea of the dark and light sections of the real thing but in general it is unique as only this style of painting can be.

My latest project...This is Revell’s 1/28 1964 pop of Werner Voss’ F1 Fokker Triplane. I did this between builds just for the fun of it. The streaking was what really excited me. in this case I mixed green and black up then loaded up the brush more or less to get the light and dark shaded streaks. Besides the streaking the only unique thing I did here was to spray a bright white highlight on the ridges Revell put on the wheels to give the illusion of spokes I managed to get all the kit decals on, although some are better then others. A couple split in 2 and one of them in 3 but overall they were useable for a fun project like this.
