    Awesome work Adrian, you should take this one step further and carefully apply a wash to these details. you will have even nicer results.

    Yes washes will come much later on.
    I just dont know if i should panel wash round the raised details or wash all the clean grey paint...?

    Well done, nice drybrushing, as Brain said a wash will highlight more the detail. Personally I think that at this stage, for the clean grey parts apply a very thinned wash like a filter and then panel wash the raised detail for more depth. The usual procedure that I follow is first I apply a wash between the raised details then dry brushing followed by a very thinned wash.

    Unless you want to change the grey completely don;t apply a general wash but just a panel wash. If you want to give the pit a more used and weathered look, check out some actual photos to see how the paint is affected and what colour changes occur. If you need a general wash like a filter, speaking for myself, i would use the airbrush and obtain the results i need with maybe varying shades, applied very thinly as filters to areas you need as required, for example, where the pilot touches most frequently or rests his hands. You need to really check out some good references here before you decide.

    Yes i have a few good references. i have found that there is alot of yellow due to the grey paint being scratched off, revealing the yellow primer. especially on the bottom near the rudder pedals. but not too sure how to do it :/ drybrushing it would look good on edges but not on a flat surface.. shall i try knocking a fine brush with yellow to get those scratched marks? Suspect

    Hi Adrian, when you atart your next project, consult from the beginning. What you are talking about are paint chippings revealing the undercoat. You should have sprayed the yellow (probably some sort of zinc chromate primer0 before the grey, so that you could scratch off the grey slowly to revela the yellow or use any other technique like putting salt grains, liquid mask or the famous harspray method. Now since you have already sprayed the grey, the only thing you can do with will give you just a good a result is to paint in these chips by hand using a very fine brush. It is excellent that you have good reference becasue you can copy the shapes of the paint chipping and get them to look really authentic. Ghal darb'ohra man!! go on you can still do it.

    Those are great references and you can see where there is the chipping on the cockpit sill, on the joystick and the instrument panel coaming. Also, some areas have undercoat and the yellow shows through, whilst in other cases either another colour shows like on the cockpit sill or else the aluminium itself like the instrument panel coaming. it think that given the stage you have arrived at, you can still go an excellent weathing job. I can;t picture the size of this model becasue i think it is pretty large so consult with the afv guys for the correct application of chipping to get a nice effect, you need to go into detail, considering the size.

    Brilliant work Adrian, very nice paitning and detail. Your patience is bearing fruit. Try to go a bit slower on the drybrush, less heavy.
