Brilliant Rod.

 

The weathering (well, and the rest of the work) is what takes it up to the modelling stratosphere.

Thanks Charlie,
modeling is a way to get through this bad moment (my country on lockdown ... 😷)

I recommend you be careful

Excellent finish, weathering and final look, but one thing catched my eye - USAF marking on lower right wing - is it positioned correctly - top of the star should point to the front of the plane? 🙄

 

Cheers,

S.

Well, mistakes do happen, it doesn't spoil the positives for the whole model - you've done excellent job with painting and weathering.

I've never been attracted to the F-51D but this has most certainly changed my mind! What did you use to coat the model before applying the decals, before/after the wash? What did you use for the wash on the metallic surface?
