Desert Weathering a Chinook ?

Recommended Posts

Mostly dust (low in fat ;) ) and sand, so instead of dark washes and pre-shading, maybe yellow/sand washes, panel lines etc!

Some oil/fluid staining around critival areas, engines... sand would stick there more easily and be darker



Is that what you are after?

Try the US Army flickr site and then do a search for CH-47 (the lower search, not the one at the top of the screen). It seems the light green version of the paint scheme doesn't show much oil or dust, but the dark green could get very interesting, like in these photos (remove the space):

Have a look here at some of Ashely's pics from Afghan they show how stuff does actually weather

Here are a few that I took whilst on Op Telic at Ali Al Salam, after the Chinnoks had been on almost continous operations since that start of this conflict. I do have some pictures of CH-46s, CH-53s and UH-60s that were also based there if you want for comparison with the Chinook.
