Default Warp Eagle Lift Speedbuild™

Not a bad little kit, to be honest. Bit pricey for what it is but nice all the same.

Totally ruined by my naff weathering, mind...







See later in thread for updated version.

Nice work

Hey guys, gonna be heading over to the hobby shop in a bit.
What type of red should I get for the lift?

Also, Mark, what technique did you use to get the weathering look?

You're asking me? I'm flattered!

I used a white undercoat then laid on a coat of tangerine as the red I bought seemed a little dark and a bit too RED (Halfords Ford Sunburst Red). I tend not to get too anal about colours - I mix the sprays in coats for various shades/effects...

For the weathering, I cut out rectangles of card and attached some adhesive tape tabs so I could place and lift them off easily. I then just placed them randomly and used light dustings of Halfords Peugeot Steel Grey and Black. Move the card pieces around then rinse, repeat. Finally, I applied a very light dust of white primer and some acrylic varnish (satin).

Speedbuilds are always a bit of a hash - 'cuffing it' as I go along - but they're fun! This turned out better than I'd hoped.

Thanks Commander
Pin ups I can paint, but you are way ahead of me on the modelling work,
I'm afraid to even do some weathering on my p/es.
I think when I'm done with my current projects, I may attempt a pin up of Maya in front of an eagle Scary that Maya would be the least intimidating portion of the piece.

You need an airbrush. Good for pin ups too.

I used 'VW Brilliant Orange' as I believe (this is only my own opinion though - perhaps DX can confirm the correct colour) that the pads are orange rather than red.

I'm still part way through weathering so hope to complete mine by the end of the weekend. Couldn't do it today because I got dragged out shopping to Bluewater AND Lakeside - both in one day

Still I did manage to pick up a few Tamiya 1:35 Half-Track kits I was after...

It's difficult to quote exact colours in this case because I admit I have no idea. Definitely not red. The Japanese books make the pads look red but their pictures are generally too blue. A flamey orange can't be too far from the truth.

Thanks Gang
Local hobby shop is a bit lacking in selection.
I'll be working in acrylic, so I purchased some citadel blood red, orange and I'll be mixing and misting in various yellows from my standard airbrush colours to see what I get
w8cmp, I hear ya, my Mrs. wants me to go BIKE shopping, IN JANUARY

Well I finally got around to weathering my pad model at last. I got a new silent compressor the other day for my airbrushes and was itching to try it out.

Here's the result of this weekend's work...displayed with one of my Warp Eagles:







And this is the reason my pad model has been delayed getting finished - it took priority I'm afraid :



Still got some way to go on the Falcon...painting soon

I still have to add the small personel platforms below the pad, but other than that it's pretty well finished. Just got to find some shelf space for it now !

Thanks for your comments everyone...I love just having fun with an airbrush like this and doing what I fancy, with a bit of experimentation thrown in for good measure. Plus a raid on the rub down lettering sheets and decals for some extra interest.

Next I think I'll attach the small glider model I have to see if I can achieve a similar panel effect like the original...could be fun.

I'm also working on Jim Small's studio scale Pilot Ship model which is a real beauty, so I have to start some really subtle and restrained weathering on the panels for that one. I've painted the base in Ford Diamond White, have masked and sprayed the red areas, and am now starting the detailing.

Nice job! Kinda puts my rush-job to shame. I'll attend to some more details at a later date no doubt.
