Wow this just came up on my feed again. Well now that I’ve built the Eduard kit, I can fully confirm that they did in fact step up their gane, and the Eduard Mustang is a gem!

@Habu12, what was the paints and process you used for these two beauties? This is exactly how I would like mine to turn out.

Oh man...ummm...I honestly forgot, it was years ago now...

I think it was TMM enamel RAF Dark Green, and RAF Medium Sea Gray. I preshade with Mr. Surfacer Black 1500, and add the base colors on top, varying for effect. Then I weathered the stains with Tamiya weathering sets A,B,C,D after a coat of Dullcote. Then I add another coat of Dullcote to seal it.

Beautiful pair of Ponies, super paint jobs, they look great in that scheme.

Awesome. Even if it's not exact it's a start. The predshade and dullcote steps probably are the single most items I need to know. That dullcote really gives it the flatter finish which I absolutely love. Thank habu!
