Thank you, guys! ;)

 

I'm really happy with this project so far, because I have learned a lot of new stuff during it. Probably the most educating project for me so far when it's up to weathering. And I know she'll bring joy to my face every time I see her finished in the display case ;)

 

Truth be told, I'm so happy with the results I'm actually thinking of a miniature diorama or at least a display base for this birdie :D

Hand-painted with a thick mix of Revell flat black + flat white + a few drops of flat brown:

I think there aren't enough damadged (torn) places on the roof, so I'm slowly adding more. But this is where I stopped last night - less is more and it is easyer to add more than bugg myself because there are too many ;)

 

Next up considering the roof:

- More torn places

- Dirt

- Dry-brush

- Washes

- Pigments

- Oil paints

- ...

 

I am way happier with the result than I thought I would be :D It came out much better than I expected :D

 

TBC!

Finally got my guts together and tried the foil technique to simulate old, torn vinyl. Why so much hesitation? Because I was pretty much sure BMF would ripp off any paint off the model it touches... And boy was I right... Luckilly I was able to cover only the necessarry places of the model and the only paint that got torn off was on the windows frames - and I intended to paint them black anyway ;)
