Saltydog,

That Dauntless is phenomenal! I really love the patchy effect you got with that painting method. I WILL be trying it out soon.

That's the best looking finish I've ever seen on a WWII USN aircraft.

Thanks for sharing your technique.

Chris

thanks chris. just a note, you may want to try rock salt or something with a little larger grain. next time i do this, i'm gonna try a larger grain salt for a lot less "clean up". good luck and thanks for the kind words. later.

Wonderful finish on the Dauntless and a very interesting technique to achieve it. Many thanks for the informative article. I have a Corsair waiting for paint that is definitely going to get the "Salty Treatment". I think I will try using kosher salt. The grains are larger than table salt and smaller than rock salt, but they are also very irregular and jagged so they may clump better to give a better edge to the masking. We'll see if I can do your technique justice.

:thumbsup:
