Tamiya Panel Line Wash Gray on an Super Hornet?

Recommended Posts



I have the 1:48 Revell F/A-18E and I am using the CAG decals and paint scheme from VF-14 that came with the kit. The Vertical Stabilizers on that scheme are black. So I painted them accordingly. I am now at the decal stage and am wondering what to do looking forward... I planned on using my black Tamiya wash on everything (navy gray scheme paint job on the bird), but then I have the black vertical stabs. Do I use the gray wash on them? I feel like:


1) gray wash doesn't actually work well (maybe I just need to stir/shake up the enamel wash better)

2) it would create issues to the eye having a black wash throughout but a gray wash on the stabs.


Here is where I am at so far:
