It's a thing of beauty. Enjoyed following the build, and it's come out wonderfully. The internals are fantastic - just knowing that they're there must be quite satisfying. Great job.

Excellent job on this one. I find it is always hard to get close ups clear and I bet you don't see that dust in reality. Close ups bring out every speck of dust. Anyway well done.

that is a real beauty , you have got some nice tonal variation in the black, really breaks up the monochrome colour

I have seen that wing before...ah, that's right, in a helicopter build although it looks much better now. Very smart Tomoshenko, that oxide Upkeep adds a nice  little twist.

Great work and i agree that the Tamiya NATO Black looks just right.

A difficult colour to weather and add tonal variation to whatever the scale. I find NATO black with light heavily diluted washes (filters) breaks down the blandness.

Those damned macro shots never cut you any slack. When I looked at the piccie full size I exclaimed "flippin eck" (ok it was another expletive), but you're right at normal viewing even with a magnifying glass you can't see the dusty bits. Rubbing it with a cotton bud makes it worse as it attracts the dust via static.

That's one fantastic Dambuster!  The weathering and, as already mentioned, the tonal variations in the black are just outstanding.  Makes me want to get my kit out of storage and start up where I left off. 

 

Cheers,

Posted yesterday.... How did I miss this? I haven't been drinking or off my meds. 🤔

 

But never mind because I've seen it now, and what a stormer of a build that is. Nicely done with great weathering, and your artistic decision to go for the red primer coated payload pays dividends in visual interest. 😎

 

Well done and thank you for sharing. :goodjob:
