    B-17g 1:72 Hasegawa

    Post  antonio argudo on Sun Jun 06, 2010 12:16 am

    hi mates, this is whats on my bench now, but just for fun and terapeutic purpose,not even putty or sanding process!the decoration is ficticius and the decals are not from the kit Razz it will be a gift for my brother (hope so) Twisted Evil
    its the old hasegawa with raise panels but a good shape in general, also is a base for my first try with alclad paints (wich are amazing by the way!) and weathering test for my 1:48 proyect... Cool
    this is it for the moment, Cheers!
    Antonio

    Antonio, even if this is a "test" as you want to call it, it's great!

    Antonio, i already mentioned this in the other thread, but i love your metal finish. Can you tell us how you achieve that. It is magnificent and also takes so well to weathering.

    Thanks all for the kind words!
    Bcauchi, I used for the first time Alclad white aluminum,wich are easy and great to use, my favourite! and in some panels snj polished powder!
    to weathering, I airbrushed soft brown/black, and then oil washes, first orange/sepia as very transparent layers in big areas and once they were dry(next day) black oil wash, also I used some grafito pencil and fade it with q-tips, thats it!
    I will try more methods and alclad paints, after my experimentation I realise is easy to fade the bright of aluminum in the weathering proces more than other finish, so I should stay a bit clener next time !
    keep the good mate!
