    Nice job! How did you do it?
    And one other question, I assume that the lower part of the gear covers was removed so snow and mud wouldn't get clogged up, but where is the canopy?

    Thanks guys.
    meatloaf109, this particular plane had fixed tail wheel and removed sliding canopy.

    It must had been a real pleasure flying around in Leningrad winter with wind in your face...

    The technique was made with the help of AK Interactive - Worn effects acrylic fluid. Very easy to use. First you spray this fluid between the two colors (in this case after the green, before the white) and just scuff the upper paint off with a wet brush. Same can be done with hairspray or maybe fine sanding paper.

    Very nicely done. I did my winter camo by spraying acrylic white over enamel base and using fine sandpaper.
