    Same here, panel lines may a touch heavy, but I like heavy lines so....

    Looks great for a first effort man...

    Great job Jay! I like how you did the exhaust, gun, and oil stains.

    Great job, especially for a first attempt at NMF. Panel lines are a touch heavy though - in this scale, you can get by without highlighting them at all.

    I agree that the panels lines are a bit heavy. I also think the weathering may have been too much. It was my first attempt at trying an oil wash for the panel lines and doing any kind of weathering. I've mostly built cars and motorcycles and there's definitely some different techniques to learn for aircraft and military. Thanks for all the constructive comments guys.

    The overall weathering is quite good, as BBD started to show the dirt fairly quickly, bearing in mind the Group received Mustangs during the winter months. But, for a first attempt at NMF and weathering etc, it's bl**dy good mate!
