How do you plan to weather this winter cammo? Think it should be scratched a little?

I'm not certain yet how much weathering I'll do to the white. On one hand it could depict the airplane not long after the overcoating had been applied, or it could be at the end of the winter season and very dirty. At any rate, the Swedish maintainers kept their airplanes in a nice, clean condition for the most part so I don't think heavy weathering would be needed.

Apologies for the photos, I'll take more in better lighting at a later time. Still a tiny bit of weathering to accomplish before it goes on display.

As I earlier pondered, only light weathering was done, primarily around the cowl flaps and underside of the engine cowling where the most "soot" and such normally appears. Other than that, here is my first Falco:

I had the flour out for cooking this morning so I decided to experiment a little. Bear with me--the concrete is showing on some of these!!! :-roll

My "snowscape" is just something that popped into my head when cooking. There was a breeze blowing hard enough to move my "snow" around but not enough to make drifts....... :-joke  The extra set of ski-tracks are another option that I should have fixed. :-red
