Hello, this Spitfire is my first complete build, I used it to gain some experience in airbrushing and basic techniques. For painting I used Humbrol Enamels (basic camo) and Tamiya and AK acrylics. For weathering I used Winsor & Newton and Abteilung oil paints (raw amber for fuel leaks, ivory black for smoke, dark rust for oil leaks and zinc white + raw umber for dust effect), also I used AK's paneliner for grey and blue camo (I know that looks overweathered but I had some accidents during masking).

Hi everyone, I'm joining up because I'm about to get started on a new build for my brother-in-law, but it's been probably 20 years or so since I last built a model (and they were fairly sorry jobs of it, what with all the detail and attention that most 12 year olds have) and most of my recent experience is on a full-scale aircraft (an RV-7). I'm going to be trying to mod the Trumpeter 1/72 CH-47D into an F model and paint it in BIL's unit colors for his birthday. So if y'all have any advice for me I will be very grateful :)
