Slavo. I am anxiously waiting for the 'set' of the Uschi powders, having been given some 'chrome' by my club mate on an experimental basis and, I am finding it is like using 'alclad', in that you need a gloss black base to start with for the powder to do it's job.
I will be putting together a little blurb here on how I find it's applicable and how to get some good/or bad results, but at the moment I have no images of the stuff I have done, as these examples are all packed in boxes ready for the QMHE 2019 event on August in Brisbane/Ipswich.
As for the wood grain decals and how that build happened, it was from hearing the stories of how Germany had started to run out of the metals needed for aircraft production and the fact that there were more furniture makers than metal workers in Germany at that time and how the Horten brothers had been glider builders before the war.
I tried to imagine what the Ho-229 would have looked like before it was passed through the paint shop as
I was just not happy with all the paint schemes I was seeing of the Ho-229, as there was NO information about what it looked like except from what the one that was 'captured' looked like after the yanks had painted it before shipping it back to the USA for the reverse engineering by Northrop happened.
I did the same thing with the V-22 'Osprey'. Having seen some images of it in it's Bell-Boeing paint scheme when it was going through it's prototype configuration and the paint scheme it had before main production started after the project got the approval of congress. Much better than that drab gray scheme and the yawn factor that went with it. Italari's V-22 "Osprey" in prototype colours from 1994. | Album by RedRoo
