The painting phases begin.
As anticipated at the beginning of the work, the mod will be painted entirely with the airbrush and weathering (a technique to achieve effects such as rust on the screws, gunpowder effect, etc.).
As you can see from the first photo of the F18 Hornet, the paint is inspired by the aeronautical camo of the American navy, and you can see the various weathering effects there.
The technique used is "Marble" on a black background and with two shades of gray, Sky Gray and Dark Sea Gray.
After having carried out the perfect preparation of the surfaces with all that goes with it, with this technique you must balance the final color with various passages and fill every single space created with the Marble by blending the two shades of gray being very careful not to make mistakes with excesses of color, etc., on pain of having to do all the work again.
In the end 2 hands of super opaque transparent Alclad 2.
In particular, it is worth noting the finishing of the handmade engravings that was performed with specific oil colors for professional modeling.
The end result is exactly what I wanted.
Later we will enter into the heart of the painting with other very interesting details.
