First up was his Irvin leather flying jacket, painted with a mix of various highlight and shadow washes from the AK leather set;

Mae west painted up last night. Also added a satin varnish to his Irvin Jacket, which was a bit worrying at first as it seemed very dark ,but over night the jacket has gone back to its original shades - phew;

In between adding the various layers of blacks/greys/whites onto 'Louis' I also got on with the pilots '1939 pattern flying boots';

Need a coat of matt varnish as does louis, and the boots need some light dirt added to them.

The 3 piece suite arrived yesterday, garish doesn't come close, so a 20 minute dip in AK's extreme metal cleaner (that stuff should come with a health warning - smell is horrendous and potent) left outside and then a wash in hot soapy water removed all of the decal/print on the chair. A coat of primer revealed that the pattern is actually embossed into the seat so a rub down to get everything level and then a coat of Vallejo putty, smoothed out with a brush was applied. 

 

 

This has since been sanded back, so ready for another coat of primer and then good to paint (red)

Looking great so far.

I nearly bought this at Darlington Sword & Lance but held back because I had quite a few other projects underway.  Seeing this has really made me wish I'd got it.
