1/32 Trumpeter Dauntless

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Taken me ages to finish as life got in the way and I had a few dips in enthusiasm, but got there in the end.

A nice model from Trumpeter - everything fits pretty well. Not Tamiya etc, but definitely worth a go if you like the subject... Montex Masks and Eduard BigEd used

This paintjob is stunning :shocked: Haven't seen this realistic wear effects yet. How did you do this, with the normal hairspray method? I'm also impressed by the many different color shades you brought into the surface. Simply amazing overall!

That's a really nice model. Very striking effects ands looks convincingly realistic.

Possibly the best example from that kit I've seen.

Thanks Thomas... I went for a different process this time as I find the hairspray method a little difficult to control (more practice required!)

Using acrylics:

1. Spray of aluminium around the main wear areas

2. Over sprayed with light green for the primer

3. Medium blue overall

4. Light grey blue overall

In between each coat a spray of enamel based clear to protect and after each new colour - gently rub away with a damp cloth or cotton bud (thinners) for the desired wear effect.

The start of the process is on the build log...

Hope that makes sense...

Thanks for all the comments...

Can't decide what to build next, but I'm at Scale Model World tomorrow (Saturday) so no doubt I'll be tempted by something or other!
