Hello! Hey Lee I cheated and had a friend of mine paint the prop for me ... He has done a few already and the fact that he is artist can't hurt .. so here are a few pics until I get my decals from Copper State.

Fantastic wood effect on the prop! I don't blame you for getting him to do that.

I like the way you're painting your plane. I was thinking about something similar but didn't have the patience to do the research and all.

In a nutshell:

I painted it the red base coat and then masked off and painted the white marking areas.

I mixed up oils to match and then went lighter and darker outlining the ribs in that manner and adding shadows and highlighting.

After I gloss coated, put on the decals, and gloss coated again, I did the dirtying up with oils and then sprayed dull coat over it all.

I think that's the best I've ever seen that model done so far! Can't wait to see the decals and weathering on it.

Thanks Rokket! But I got started all ready I just hope it isn't too small of scale ..I figure some avation cable is about 1/8th inch at least that what we sell at the hardware store i work at .. So I kinda guessed I have some very fine nylon fishing line and I used that... Jeff

My pleasure, sir!

It's good to see authentic detailing with an artistic flair on that particular plane.
