How did you shade the raised areas in the cockpit to give a "shadow" effect?

I highlighted all the raised areas with Vallejos, using hues that are much lighter than the base color; after that, I made an oil wash with a hue much darker than the base color, trying to push the oil in the recesses.

You can notice that on the door, where the ribs are painted with a green lighter than the base color...

Hope it helps...

Stunning work, absolutely gorgeous. Here's a pic of the real thing at the IDF/AF museum last year:
