ME 109 E4n - Airfix 1/72

The thickened light grey mix is spread and feathered over gun bulges, radiator edges and so on to add shape.

And thin touches of the samre paint to subtlely simulate scratches.

The last "shape enhance" actions are made with cold ageing filter, subtle touches into some recesses and wing joints

The very last effect is some oil leaks from the engine. 

Given the need for subtlety, a filter & wash, black tone, was used.

That is an outstanding build.  I really like the way you have explained and demonstrated your techniques.

 

An incredible eye for detail and to then replicate it on such a fine scale.

 

Stunning.

 

Phil.

Thank you much Guys.

Some more pics. This kit availed me to win a master gold prize at the Italeri event in Bologna. (being awarded by the commander of 6th Squadron of Ghedi, flying on tornado planes, is not a daily business...)
