Been flying my latest rc gem for a bit, can’t help myself had to mod my little Thunderbolt, really like the Omaka based Spitfire Mk XIV, so gone for a not so common scheme from the South East Asian Conflict (SEAC) the British had a few squadrons with firstly Hurricanes then Thunderbolts. Bonus the roundals where small which means I had some in my spares box.
First strip off the decals, I have painted over these in the past, end up with a better result taking them off.
Will be a belly lander for most of her life, decided to add the bomb/droptank hard points, these will not only be for looks also landing points.
Some paint, I use life colour water based need a couple of coats to get good coverage.
A finally finish her off with some weathering, I use artist charcoals, wash off with water if you stuff up and start again.
Trick with weathering is less is best I believe. [/URL]
Bit of detail, have done a few of mine with open cockpits, warbirds the ultimate drop top!
Used a decal supposed to be on a a 1/32nd scale RAAF Boomarang, thought it looked appropriate.
