Jens Thank you Michael :), I thought of Walter Dahl was the killer B 17, so it must also be traces of the struggle :D :D

bruno Bravo. Quite deserving to feature in the painting "Real Trouble" by Keith Ferris.

Jens Thank you Bruno, I am pleased when the Fw 190 fight look like
4. September 2014 at 07:27:26
Choppa Nutta Very nicely done Jens !! :)

Ulf Petersen Beautiful, Jens! Did you use cigarette ashes for the weathering again? ;)
4. September 2014 at 09:54:02
Choppa Nutta nice idea, I had thought about that as they have just the right grey colour
4. September 2014 at 10:09:08
Jens Thanks for the opinions

and Bongolo, no, the model has Non smoking friendly patina
Choppa Nutta if you look at my Sukhoi 2, and I have aged with cigarette ash, the color is very natural with varnish dark
4. September 2014 at 10:27:48
Choppa Nutta I think I will use it on my current Spitifre as it has ended becoming a grossly worn example and I will need to fade the decals as they are to colourful and won't sit naturally with all the wear and tear, I really like this idea :)
I will check out your Sukhoi 2 too :D

Also if you have any advice on moving forward with my Spitfire I would be glad of it as I am having a moment of uncertainty :)

Choppa Nutta Is this the Sukhoi 2 you meant ?
looks lovely and worn :)

Jens to let the decals look pale I use Matte Base H 20 from Gunze Color
you have to experiment with isopropanol mixture which is compatible
the rough surface then takes the dust to better, and you can patina the characters very well
the traces should be aligned in the direction of flight, and thus also following the flow
each aircraft has corners where it can lead to compressions
if harm should ask are shown, it would consider where Koenen Plank parts meet the aircraft, and it excludes propeller circles
dirt can sic on an aircraft where hold ??
a speed exceeding 500 km / h can be probably the work surface clean, but at front edge dirt would return parts act as abrasives

what colors can show ??
Never chrome or black genuine
black is not found in nature and even the dirt stains when other components are mixed (oil / kerosene / fats, water, salt, etc.)
otherwise you should follow the stomach feeling, Creative is always in demand
and, probably also crucial
less is often more

Soeren . Really great work like I already wrote you at the modellboard.
4. September 2014 at 11:28:43
Choppa Nutta I kind of got the gist of what you are saying there, airflow patterns being an obvious one :)
I don't what a Koenen Plank is though, never heard of this before, what does it mean ?

Not sure about using isopropanol with my cheapo airbrush as the seals on it will not be the fancy ones that can take anything through them so at the moment I am only using acrylics. I was considering using the Life Colour matt clear with a drop of grey in it just to knock the colours back a little bit and then do the ash tray trick.

less is often more -
often so true, and has left me wondering have I overdone the chipping on my Spitfire, did you have a look and what do think of it so far ?

4. September 2014 at 11:45:32
Jens I do not what a Koenen Plank is though, never heard of this before, what does it mean?
so I thought the affiliation, provide the individual panels
sopropanol is very mild
my Airgun must ethyl acetate swallow, even thinner in enamel colors is stronger than 70% alcohol (medical alcohol :D :D :D)
4. September 2014 at 12:04:33
Choppa Nutta I'll see what my local hobby shop has got :)
Sorry but I am still not getting what this Koenen Plank is,
is it to do with individual panels getting weathered slightly differently to the one next to it ?
4. September 2014 at 12:07:59
Jens think of the crossroads
there are different currents
often intense and more swirls
4. September 2014 at 12:18:45
Choppa Nutta yeah one can certainly see that on the exhaust plumes above the wings on the fuselage follow the pressure curve of the airflow and the turbulent airflows behind things that stick out
4. September 2014 at 12:25:44
Jens sorry my english, google translate

you can note it, but you have not
discreet and sensible
which is then perfect the ergebniss
only a photo of the model often shows the real grat the weathering

Christian Bruer Nice Butcher Bird Jens!

Patrik Spett How was this to build? I have read that eduard FW190 A :S require a lot of filler and sanding.
4. September 2014 at 16:39:42
Jens Hello people and thanks for the words
@ Patrik, one does not need a spatula, but if you want to build the hatches closed, is very much patience and grinding work announced
must be fought for 10ths mm at the wheel well, is wrong or inaccurate, the landing gear is not yet fit, the kit is very good and I enjoy, but he probably needs a lot of care, which sometimes gets lost in my speed, and then as a follow up session time demands that you step on the first would be to

Phil Marchese Nice.
(A general comment on final accent based on experience of what works and obsevartion of what does not:

never add final accents by formula. This is very much in vogue presently and the model then comes across a technique showcase rather than a representaion. Add only what you see in the references; sometime more subtle for scale, sometime slightly accentuated, but only slightly. Subtle is precieved more than observed and that is the real magic of fine art in styrene. yes, if the images of your subject are not clear, use another photo, however stay as close to locale, unit, duration and conditions as possible in selecting refernces. ) By the way, I think the balance of final effects here is rather nice!

Jens Hi Phil, I hope I understand Google Translate :D
thanks for the words, and it hits perfectly
I do not older after pictures, always feeling
