    1/32 FW190 A5

    Post  Joseph on Fri Feb 12, 2010 11:29 pm

    I have started work on this 1/32 FW190 A5 a very long time ago, but hopefully I will finish it for this year's expo. Next stage for this beautifull aircraft is paintwork and I have decided to apply some weathering.

    After the undercoat I applied aluminuim rub+buff on areas that are more likely to be scratched. This was left to dry and then I randomly positioned salt granules. Next step is to spray the O2 covering these areas so I would place some more salt granules. The idea, hopefully, is that when the whole aircraft is sprayed I will remove the salt granules and the chipping will apear.

    I will keep posting the step by step of the whole process.

    This is the first time that I am using this technique so, my learning curve is still at its infancy Smile

    Brian, if you have some advice or you notice anything wrong in my aplication please point out.

    Hi Joseph,
    Very nice progress. As far as I can see you have used salt for chipping. That's nice and very realistic method for the final result. But...I have an objection for VDM's chipping...I think the VDM you have installed were wooden. Can you tell me which A-5/U????? are you gonna make? I can find some documented info about it, if you like so.

    PS>..Dont forget to make holes for installing wheel's position indicator on wings.

    Cheers
    Alex

    I don't tink so Alex because the wooden prop was for later type F's ang G's, here is some examples but later I will find more in detail ref...may be what you are ref is a prototype or later version , because there were a lot of prototype models of the A-4 and the A-5...

    That's the reason I mention that. But there were some A-5/U-17 found with wooden props.

    So looking forward to seeing this one come together, pity that there is not a nice pilot figure for Ray to paint for it. Hardy

    The sand granules is a good technique for controlled chips Joe. Maybe if primer was involved in planes, you overspray what you have already done with what colour the Germans primed in, then add some more salt granules again on the same areas and continue your spray with the Luftwaffe colour scheme. When you take off the salt granules you 'll be having some different chips, those that went till the aluminium and those that just revealed the primer ... it will add some more interest in that specific area ...

    IMO you need also to add some minute crystals Joe, just crash some granules and use the smaller ones ... just to easily add those minute scratches ...

    Very nice idea........I agree with Ivan's suggestion re crushed granules as they appear too big, or rather they are surely magnified like everything else after all Shocked

    Interesting idea, waiting to see results Joe. I agree with ray and ivan applying crushed smaller granules, or they are there already and made to look bigger in the pic.

    Cool progress!

    How do you attach the salt grains to the hull?

    Sorry Joseph, i forgot to explain that when i used that technique, i used the fine salt grains not the large ones. that is why it took so long to place them I picked them up one by one!!

    Yes Brian, you told me to use the fine table salt and explained well the process, infact that is what I have used, I think the granules are magnified in the photos but what happened is that with water the granules liquified a bit and became a big blop. I have removed the large areas and re-done these. I have also experimented with sand granules. I wait to see the end result.

    Tiny you just dip a fine paint brush in water and then pick the salt and place it on the surface, these will hold firm unless you hit them off with your hands Smile

    The trouble with sand granules may be that they will not stick to the model. With salt, the water melts them enough to make them stick to the model. Actually they stick quite well and have to be brushed off. When i dip the brush in water, i dab it on a tissue first to just have the bristles damp.

    Brian, yes salt sticks better with the surface.

    It seems that the prop supplied with the kit is 95% correct, so I am going to stick with it Smile

    Very good engine photos.
