- Green # 371 was used for the base color. Lightened in several stages with yellow. The lighter green was not applied cover.
- The black nose was painted with NATO black. Dark gray was used for the lighter areas. Pure black was used only to emphasize the panel lines.
- The underside was painted with Revell's lichtgrün. Shaded with white and black.
Making it look "used"
- I wanted the green area more interesting: Added another layer of lighter green. MIG Worn effect was used to achieve this result.
- At the wing roots, I added silver chips.
- Decals applied.
- Needed the help of Gunze Setter and Softer. Worked quite well.
- More chips applied with a very small brush
- Added a brown washing to the wings
- A sponge was used to do the small chips
The wheel bays
- Revell's silver was used to brush the wheel wells.
- Also added a brown wash to the surface.
- Although the original aircraft made a pretty clean impression, I did not want to miss exhaust stains
- Brown and black are the base color
- Light gray was used for the area where the exhaust fumes are the hottest
- The exhaust pipes ready for installation.
- A washing with sand makes the tires look used.
- The chassis makes a very good impression.
- On the landing gear flaps, the same painting was applied as on the remaining underside.
