Thank you Thomas, Sarunas, Philip, Gavin, Anthony, Clifford, Maciej, Dale, Kerry, Ed, and Xander! I was away for the weekend and it is such a pleasure to return to so many wonderful comments and compliments. I really appreciate it!
Maciej, that is indeed one of the pics that I looked at when trying to decide how to weather my model. I also thought it was interesting to see the contrast in actual color of the grays in the two aircraft in this pic. Goes to show you, especially with Russian Aircraft, that actual color is not so important. It is all about what color you see with your eye, picking out what looks right to you, and going from there. That is what I did on mine, I just picked grays from my paint stash that looked about right for each color.
