DKoK Lightening Mostly Done





I just realized I forgot to paint the lenses and the pilot! So, mostly done it is. It seems that every other post, I realize that a model isn't really completed. What would my stuff look like if I didn't post? I bet it would look unfinished.

I hope the smoke and chipping hides the lacquer problems I had. I think it does. I used a photo of a Japanese ww2 Zero for the aluminum chipping inspiration. I suppose I should dust the whole model using a sand colored filter now. I had intended to use an enamel for my filter, but after the lacquer incident that wasn't doable. Overall, this model is close to what I envisioned. It just lacks the realism I like.

  1. Hah! It is a truism that every time one takes a picture of a model, some new thing leaps out as being missed. Never. Fails. :)

    That said, I absolutely love how this is turning out, man - The depth of color your technique provides is truly outstanding!

  3. I don't know man i think you are your won toughest critic. looks great and planes are typically well maintained so not too much weathering is a good idea :)

    1. Probably not. I haven't taken too many photos of them. I keep meaning to do so, but the are so fragile.

  7. Beautiful work on it and way to recover from the enamel setback. The weathering looks really good and I like the spot colors of yellow
