Just missing paint symbols on the bottom wing.
I had almost finished my model in the painting. I had some problems to solve. No longer do freehand with the airbrush for a long time. I've been without building models for almost 8 years. I restarted for about two years. I spent the tanks for aircraft. Only after seeing the picture of your model I decided to risk it. I got lucky and came out better than I expected. Thank you.\ said:She is nice and looks well used too. Great work António.Have fun, John
Thank you. I’ll try. Let’s see how it will go.\ said:I think it's going to be hard to see if you're only using dark colors when you do it over a black surface. I've seen some exhaust stains that have a slightly white/greyish tint to them. you might want to start with a very very light shading of of grey over the area to lay down as a base. then do the black and brown on top of it.I attached a copy of my 190 where i have the exhaust stains going back pretty far because i wanted them to be seen. i had the same experience though where you don't really see it over the black decal/paint that's already there. i figured it would've been the same in real life.
but i would try experimenting with the white/grey base then the black and brown on top of that on a scrap piece first before putting it on your model. it looks really good so far and i'd hate for you to not like the results. good luck.
