First of all, please forgive my English. :)

It will be 1/72 and this idea is very old. :D Sometime over a year ago, my friend and me figuried out a non-common dog-fight flight display, with TIE Fighter, and X wing. The idea was; the TIE will be at Luftwaffe scheme, and the X wing will be RAF scheme. My friend was ill a long time, but the idea still in my mind. :)

Now here is the new idea. I'll paint the X wing in RAF scheme around the Battle of Britain, and I'll paint the Spitfire at Red 3 scheme frome the Star Wars - A new hope. 

I found Mark II mask set a year before, that what I want to use. But, when I want to buy a 72 scale Mk II, I did not found. Hello Mr Murphy. But I have the new Airfix Mk Va. A little changes, and it will be good for Mark II. 

I have to make some upgrade on the Airfix kit, but nothing fancy. There will be some figures. Two pilotes, and one civilian. The civilian is movie director. :D:D:D

First of all, I made the base. This is a Costal Kit airfield. And this will be the composition. On the lower left corner will stand the director.

But the base was 2D. I scratch the base, and made a heavy wahs on the lines with Vallejo blue wash, and it get some light wash everywhere. Maybe I'll use some pigments at the end ... I dont know yet ...

Made some pre-shading-ish. This technique is the mix of the pre-shading, and black basing and black-and-white. I used three diferences gray, and white. I aplyied these colors with low pressure, highly dilluted, and a micro worm stlye. I used H&S Infinity airbrush, with a 0.15 needle.

 

The under colors are done. I know, it is very hard to see it, but beliwe me, you can see it with your eyes. This is a good base for any weathering technique, especially when you working with acrilycs only.

 

The whole proces was 4 hours. This marbel coats, and the under-colors.

 

First coat of gray. This is important. You have to start with the DARKEST color.

I think this is a good base for the black aircrafts, or sci-fi things too.

All colors are done. As you see, you can made pre-weathering-highlighting-something. :D

Okay, this is the base color. I think, the light of my desk lamps, are very shine. It is very hard to see, but there it it. :)

Now try another light-up mode. Here is the base.

And the end result ... ehhh ... I hope you see it.

These look Great 👍 For future reference if you do more of these. I would put the RAF fin flash on the nose of the X-wing.
