Panavia Tornado F.3 Royal Air Force (1918-now) 1435 Flt. ZE889/H | RAF Mount Pleasant May 2000 | Cam grey, LA grey
Pero Sušić Hello out there.
I'm building this kit and right now I'm about to plan the camouflage. It has to be the black glossy one. I like it, it looks pretty good.
Does anybody have me some advice how to weather a black glossy camouflage?
Thanks a lot.

Roland Gunslinger Hi Pero,
IMHO this scheme is a showbird and isn't much weathered. But if you want to weather it i suggest to make the Panel Lines with a light-darker grey. According to the weathering age i would do some matt clear coat over some parts of the surface. Gloss finish is lost by dust and dirt hitting the surface on ground and in flight. You also can use a sandpaper.
Oil Streakings from the flaps/slats and on the underside. And a wash with some dusty colors are also possible.
Though it breaks my heart looking at this beautiful showbird weathered, im looking forward to see your result
Clifford Keesler I bet that is going to be a nice kit. Is it the Revell F.3 plastic?

Clifford Keesler I do not like the German IDS color scheme that comes in the kit. I like the normal German color scheme, but I can't figure out what colors to use. The British one is Desert Pink which I have 3 bottles of. LOL. I do not think the GR.4 is in production any more, I looked on Revell Germany's website and it is not in their catougle any more, and most of the shops I use list it as out of stock. So beats me. Am going to grab a F.3 before it disappears also.
