Wow!

the best Foxhound model I ever seen.

You added a lot of missing details by AMK such as Hinges, rear bulges, canopy details...

Weathering is also very realistic. Can you tell us a bit more about it?

Wich products and techniques?

 

thanks

Thank you rom1.

I'm glad you noticed hinges. I spend quite a lot of time on those.

Regarding weathering techniques, I have chosen to model dirtiest Mig-31 I could find picture of.

A lot of paint fading and discolouration was achieved simply by painting.

First I preshaded whole model with black and  white, with spots of gray, brown and even yellow.

After that I painted the model with Akan paints, but in several thin layers.

I noticed that Akan looks different when dry. So I painted model in 3-4 sessions

living preshaded areas more or less  exposed in some areas.

I used Tamiya tape where I wanted sharper edges between two tones of same colour  (eg. nose area)

For chipping or "spots" on nose cone, vertical stabilizer edge, exhaust I used Humbrol Maskol fluid stippled with piece of sponge

between two colors.

I did not used any panel washes as AMK panels are deep enought and I was afraid that wash would look overdone.

I have used some oils and brown pigments on some heavy weathered places like bottom or between vertical stabilizers,

but main weathering products where this two botles of True Earth SDW filters:

-Cold Ageing SDW

-Iron Grey SDW

 

http://www.true-earth.com/contents/en-uk/d84_FILTER_and_WASH_True_Earth.html

 

I don't know exact chemistry behind those SDW filters but they are water based, but kind of "oily" so they don't dry that quickly and you have time to blend them.

As they are water based You can "flood" it as you like without whoring that you will damage paint or clear cote as you could with enamel thinners or white spirit.

Thank you very much.

I proceeded in a similar way on my own build.

And yes panel lines are way to wide and deep.

At some places I ised a light gray wash in order to make them look less deep...

 

Again very well done!

Lovely job - I particularly like the diorama base, but also the variance in tones in the main gear bays :clap2:

Excellent. Painting and weathering looks great (nice tutorial) and the diorama base is very nice.
