Nice subtle weathering!  I will be watching this one come together!  I like using the craft paints as well.  What oils are you using?

Thanks, for oils I just use 2 colors mainly white and raw umber,  also some paynes grey to add in shadows here and there and on any chrome parts. I never thin my oil paint though just use neat for the tube and clear coat over every step with duplicolor acrylic enamel gloss spray bombs. No drying time needed.

Thanks James for the tip! I assumed the oils would have to flash before clear coating, I will have to try it out!  Thanks again!

Very impressive finish on your build always James.  Would love to learn to weather.

Saw about 6 of the 1:1, while driving back home from farm country Ohio today.  Yours looks so right!  Looking forward to seeing more of your progress.

Outstanding work, very subtle and realistic. Did you create your own decals/graphics for those doors?

Simply WOW! Not sure how you guys manage to work with those craft acrylics. Are you thinning with water, Windex, alcohol?

my thinner is this, 50% blue windshield wiper fluid / 50% water and a few drops of glycerin,  then I use that 50/50 with the craft paint. some colors need more some need less really just gotta mess around to find what works for you and your airbrush setup.

if you like to make super shiny builds i would stick with normal spray bombs

Once they're all thinned out,do you airbrush them?

Thank you. Talk about reading and not seeing. I just saw the answer in your original post.:blink: Must be getting old.
