  1. Morning! So I am not a newb but I am no expert in model building either. I am trying a new technique on my Trumpeter 1/32 F4U-1D... hairspray technique. I am going for a well-used and weathered look in the Pacific. I work primarily with an airbrush and acrylic paints. I primed the model in black, then went over with aluminum in some places and interior green in others. Here was my plan moving forward: Hairspray over the aluminum and interior green -> then white coat and black on panel lines -> then thinned top coats so the panel lines show through. I would then go back with a toothbrush and water on the paint to show the aluminum and interior green through it all. However, this now seems like an awful lot of coats over the hairspray and that: 1) the hairspray technique may no longer work and the paint may not come off, and 2) I may lose panel line detail with all of the coats. I want some shading though over the bird, that detail that makes the plane really POP! Suggestions? Thanks, Jim
  2. Ok, question... fading the paint... I want to give the paint scheme and decals an overall “faded” look. I read that you can lightly wet down a model, sprinkle it liberally with rock salt, then spray a “filter layer” lightly over that. Brush away the salt when it dries and it gives a faded look. Has anyone tried this? Is there a better way?
  3. Hello fellas In the salt weathering technique tutorial I will show you how I use this technique to fade and weather the camouflage of my scale model aircraft. This technique is now on important part of my weathering process and I recommend it to everyone who wants to step his game up.

  4. Hey everyone, Im new here. Just joined today :) So nice to be here among all of you awesome modelers. Thanks for this great forum. Just recently I finished Tamiya's amazing F-16 in 1/48. This would be my 3rd plane I've ever done. My experience is mostly with armor, so this was definitely a lot of fun and learning experience. Enjoy my friends
