    Spent a day working on wheels, hydraulics, gear doors and pilot.
    Green parts were dry brushed with light grey, then some yellow and some silver. All followed by oil washing. All done very randomly.

    Some subtle detail didnt show up. Due to the flash, the silver showed up mostly
    The pilot seems to be giving us a bad look. maybe cos his arm is still off... lol!

    good work, keep it up and nicely done. I tend to agree with alex about the pilot. Unless you are going to model the aircraft in a diaroma type setting, I would leave the pilot out.

    Nope im not going to put the pilot inside. if i did, i wouldnt have made seat belts & seat detail Smile
    Ill just leave him sitting on the wing or sitting outside the aircraft on something, waving his hand or holding something... scratch

    Adrian

    What type of paint are you using, acrylic or enamels? If you are getting an orange peel like finish, I think that your paint is too thick and you are not allowing the paint to dry between coats. Try and thin the paint as much as possible for a good finish. When you apply the varnish the finish will improve a lot, always soft sand (use the appropriate sanding paper for varnish) between coats.

    Will better explain the process at club

    as joseph rightly said if you do not let paint dry properly between coats you will end up with orange peel. this can be rectified by applying a good coat of clear varnish and then using very fine sandpaper and smooth the paint over

    Always enamels mate!
    I do thin varnish well. but when i thin too much, i find that the 'wetness' dries and youll end up having a barely visible finish.. its almost like i sprayed water. It could be the paint between coats, because while spraying the aircraft, i often go over parts more than once, in one session! could it be that? once i spray something, i cannot spray over it again? is it the same principle as brush painting?-brush and leave!
