1:1 Scale Painting

Recommended Posts

Interesting to see how the real jet painters work.  Just goes to show why the marbling technique is so popular.  I wonder how much tamiya 2mm and blue tack they go through per jet! :D

Things of note:

  • they paint darkest first, working towards lighter shades.
  • Panel lines on a recently painted jet are very subtle, almost like a model that has no wash applied. I need to watch out of that on my upcoming build. I can see me needing a different wash for each paint shade.
