Hello Everyone Im getting stuff together for my Me.262 build entry in the Group build section. Im considering doing a captured 262 in Natural metal finish with just the putty over the seams. Something along these lines. Or more like this. Does anyone have any ideas as to the color of the putty ? And or the colors on the tail in the 2nd profile ? I am thinking RLM-02 & RLM-82 ? Any help would be appreciated and i shall thank you in advance. Dennis
Hi all. I just finished Tamiya's wonderful 1/48 P-47D. It took me less than a week to build from start to finish. Such an easy kit to build with fantastic fit and engineering. I wanted this plane to look very well used with chipped invasion stripes on wings and fuselage. I painted first it in Alclad polished aluminium and several other metal colors over black primer, masked the parts for painting, put a bit of water with a brush on the places the paint needed to be chipped and sprinkled salt on those spots. After painting the salt was wiped off and presto, chipped paint effect.
