Aircraft Modeling / Re: Mig-17 (HB 1/48)

Thank you all!

There are many projects on my workbench right now. Currently I'm working on Matchbox Heinkel He-115, Jastreb in 1/48 scale and Italeri bell 412. A few days back we decided with my coleague modeller to work at the same time on the Revell Lancaster in 72. This will be probably the one to do next.

This is the final stop before the end. I managed to mount almost all small parts to the model.

Sall asked me to demonstrate some colouring and weathering tehniques of mine. To avoid any long discussions I made some materials to demonstrate the way to do it.

1) I used a spitfire wing to demonstrate the procedure. To recreate the scale model conditions I helped myself with photoshop.

2) First step after the model is coloured and the decals are on is to spray the whole model with matt varnish. This is what you need to do to prepare the model for postshading. With Postshading you actualy darken all lines betwen pannels with heavily diluted black paint.  The lower picture on the white background demonstrates whitch parts needed to be darkened.

3) Next step is to lighten the central parts of the panels with dilluted sand color. You can use also gray for this stage. The spaces shoud be covered unevenly.

4) To break up the whole surface the higlights come handy. This is the third faze of weathering where you adress only few parts of the wing and higlight it with dilluted white color. Be carefull to higlight the parts that are usualy disposed of wear and tear.

This is all for now. Hope you enyojed.

Oh... It looks sooo cool!! So unusual model,and looks greeeeeat!! :-clap :-clap
One question,or better to say application. Can you describe in topic "Some modeling techniques" ( ) you weathering procedure. I'm young modeler,and i don't know anything about weathering. What is pastels,postshading,etc...? What is diference betwen tamiya weathering set A,B,C,D and pastels... What details on original plan pics you must to look, to do weathering on your model. :-think :-think
If any of forum members want to describe yours method,i will be satisfied and happy. :-flo
Ps. Sorry for offtopic and ruin you great topic Primoz. :-flo

No problem I'll do it as soon as possible.

PS: Thank you all for your thumbs up :).

Because of other projects, these two were waiting for two weeks with finished Giallo Mimetico...
Late in the evening I've started Verde, but not too happy with the result - luckily, it's going to be easy to correct by adding some color to existing mottles...
Anyway, here they are for your comment, and I'll continue this evening...

Two in a row! Nice project. Like the camouflage patterns on fuselage and wings.

The model was weathered with dark brown pastel, black (postshading), ligt sand an white color.

Is this Angolan roundel some old? The new one is different from the old-you have use. :-think

As far as I know the new types of roundels started with series of Mig-21.
