Bill Gilman I will paint the base color(s) and then lighten them and spray in random patterns to simulate paint fading, etc. Often this will be in the interior of the panels, thereby leaving the panel lines "shaded" and a bit darker. And since I'm adding paint all the time, it's a lot easier to fix a mistake! Hard to do when you've covered up your pre-shading and want to get it back!
1:72 scale airplane in a week? I wish!! :) :) :)

Michel Huijghe @Bill
I do mostly the same thing. By using filters by airbrush you can add subtle differencies in the camo.

Dave Flitton I want to know how the build went. I have one of these and am looking to see if there were any problems I need to look out for.

Christian Keller Wow, looks perfect for such an old kit :)

james johnson thanks Christian.......!!
@ dave, the kit went alright, but you have to be aware that you have to drill out the fuselage where the pontoons mount. The default design is for wheels as I recall. There is no caveat for this except a wee, tiny statement tucked away somewhere within the instructions. Heavy seam lines on the pontoons..........other than that, no problems!

AndyC65 It's a great model. I assume not meant to be truly representative, as the British Army never used floats, skis or wheels.

Łukasz Gliński Bit of whatif indeed, but the shaded camo looks grand.
@Bill: I have to try this approach, thanks for your say :)
