Bart, Holger, thank you for watching! Hi Bart, you have a good eye
. But it is not completely handpainted. I usually handpaint the interior parts, landing gears, wheels, ordnance. In this case I also painted the turbo fans using the dry brush method. As you can see in picture #7, where you can see the masks, I airbrushed the primer and the light grey of the camo pattern. Then I was in trouble while masking for the other grey tones, as I noticed that I was going to get nasty problems with paint peeling (I think the primer is out of order, perhaps it is old), so I handpainted the darker greys. I tried to do some weathering, with a disparate result. I turned back to the airbrush for finishing, first airbrushing with the local version of Future preparing for decaling, and after the wash I finally airbrushed with an acrylic matt varnish to seal the decals. Model Maker's decals are good, but too brittle. I was forced to retouch with paint in a couple of places.
