    Thanks for pinning this post and renaming my build post!

    Thanks George! This one was intense but fun!

    Thank you Viking!

    Thanks Siddley!

    Thanks Chris! Photography is another hobby of mine so I bust out the "big" camera when it comes time for the final curtain call.

    Thanks Andy! The one thing I regret about this kit is not getting in on your unofficial Dora GB. Missed it by THAT much!

    Amazing work there, John. Stunning in all respects. Quick question, how did you get that wear on the wing root? That does not appear to be dry brushing in any way. I am very curious about how you obtained that look.

    Thank you Wildcat!

    Thanks Steph!

    Thanks Gnomey!

    Thank you! The chipping on the wing root was accomplished using the hairspray method. It is essentially laying down a metal finish and covering it with hairspray before the camo goes on. Water will loosen the bond between the hairspray and camo paint and you can either gently "brush" off the camo or poke it off using a sharp toothpick. The big paint chips on the starboard gun cowling were exposed using a toothpick. The more subtle paint chipping on the wing roots was revealed by simply brushing the area with a paint brush wetted with water. This was my first real experience using this method and am very pleased with the subtle effect.

    Thanks alot!

    Much appreciated!
