Cool, Rumey ! You painted the stripes ?! There were no decal stripes included ? That is tough, man. Nice job.
I recently bought the decals for Rumey's candybar albie. 1/72 however. Braillescale. ;-)
Cool too you left the hood off the engine. I like that for static models.
I would have weathered it a bit more though. This one is extremely factoryclean. :wink: High time for a spin, like Schneidie suggests. Make it dirty. :lol:

Well thanks gents, yes factory clean nom nom. I am not done though, what would you suggest Voss? With the weathering? I mean I know all about wood and how to make that good, was thinking could splatter underside of wings with some dirt to. Give me a few tips?

I may be wrong, but by the looks of it you painted the model with a brush, am I right ? But no matter. Before you started painting, you should have preshaded. Make deeper parts black. Seams, junctures and welts or parts like lids and covers that throw the slightest shadow need darkening before you paint.
After that you should apply paint in several thin, almost transparant layers, so you can see the preshading through it.
I'll post some pics later, deal ?
You could darken the deeper parts afterwards by going with a sharp pencil through them. Then rub with a paper tissue to diffuse ( is that English ?! :oops: ) the pencil line. Maybe even some spit helps. :roll:
Anything for realism !
Don't worry about stains, because after all the weathering is done, you should secure the result with mat varnish. But I guess that's not so easy if you're not using an airbrush.
Parts of the plane that suffered much are the fuselage where pilots climbed into it, lower wings where wheels throw up dust and mud.
You drybrush those parts. Pick up paint with your brush, wipe it off and with a virtually dry brush apply the paint. Use cloth or tissue to fade the applied paint. You should know that trick, being a painter, Rumey ?! :wink:
Parts outside the engine should be really messy. Oil stains, dirty hand stains. The outlet of the radiator = under the topwing should be dirty. The right side where the exhaust is, has to be sooted as ofcourse the end of the exhaust itself.

I know it's not a doubledecker, but it's the same trick ofcourse.
This is what your model should look like before you start painting.

And you should apply paint in such thin layers, that afterwards you can still see the dark preshading shine through. Trying to add preshade afterwards so that it looks realistic is twice as hard ofcourse. For obvious reasons. ;-)

These pics of the albies I've been trying to finish over the last 5 years now have been here before, I seem to remember. Anyways, this is what preshading should do for your model.

You should really try one of the wingnut models, I think It would be real nice for you and 1/32 lets you do a lot more with the detail. Also Pheon models has come out with some neat decals for the wingnut 1/32 dv.

32010L rumeys deamon
32016 ltn wolf bravarian dimonds
32017 and 32021 contains stickers for makeing another 14 j5 birds.

also lozenge decals for dva wings 32020 blue tapes 32020 pink tapes

they really looks super saw them in latest edition of windsock worldwide.

Sorry, no room for anything bigger than 1/72. Not much of a challenge either detailling anything bigger, I think. I agree: you get more detail, but that just goes with the scale. I like to scratchbuild details and make my life more complicated than it is. Just like with women. With all due respect ! Every modeler his favourite scale ! :wink:
