I have been working on this model for quite awhile trying out weathering. I am pretty satisfied with the outcome of the model. But wanted to see what anyone would suggest to try.

Nice job, but I would put some dirt on the letters and the insignia. It looks out of place to see all the weathering on front of the aircraft and then see bright white letters and clean insignia. A light wash over part of the letters or a touch of "dirt" in a few places should be all you need.

Nice work Eagle..

I put these things together from time to time too..we'll call it therapy..

Weathering is a technique that is an art unto itself.. as much about what is applied as what isn't.. as well as some fundamentals.
Recesses get grit and dirt in them, surfaces get worn and faded, protrusions get the edges and high spots silvered or chipped.

Refer to as many photo's of worn and weathered planes and cars and farm equipment too as you can.. all made of metal and painted and left in the elements and abused and worked hard, all make for good examples.

The Golden rule?.. less is more, don't overdo it.

You're P47 looks great! What scale is it?

I always render mine in flight and moderately used/weathered so I'm not much help where wheels and tires are concerned, but I like the prop streaks, the powder streaks behind the barrels, and the paint fade effect at the wing roots.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif..
I can see why you posted it up! I love any chance I get to see a finished scale model aircraft. Thanks Eagle.

Great Job, Eagle!
"Spirit" has always been one of my favorite Jugs.
"Fiery Ginger" (flown by N. Kearby) is a close second.
Not to be a wet blanket, but Republic never used the zinc chromate green so common on other US aircraft. Theirs was what I call a "baby ****" yellow green, used on all Jugs. I was pleasantly surprised when 21st century toys got it right on their Jug models!

Outstanding Eagle, that Tamiya kit is really nice. Don't bang yourself up too bad about the interior color. The guy who built the first one for Tamiya Model Magazine did the same thing. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I can only assume you're using pastels for weathering, such as the gun streaks. If not, give them a shot. Pastels from MIG Productions (http://www.migproductions.com/pseries.htm) are supposed to be the best. Little smoke grey for the exhausts and some earth for your wheels. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

My only other suggestions:

1 - A thin blackwash to bring out the panel lines

2 - And to get rid of decal "silvering" or the shiny look, some of this:

http://f1miniatures.free.fr/images/solvant1.jpg


Anyway, it looks really great Eagle. I may just drag out my 1/48 Tamiya Corsair and build it up in honor of the soon to be released Pacific Fighters. Two weeks is it? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I actually didn't use a airbrush, just spray cans, and all the weathering is by brush with thinned out paint. I just got a airbrush so I am hoping my next effort will be even better. I ordered another Tamiya P-47 kit, so I can fix the mistakes I made and do it again.

Very nice! One thing: would the tires be a bit compressed when the plane is sitting on the ground? I don't know what PSI those tires were inflated to (I know it was high, though), but surely they flattened a small amount when holding the weight of that plane. Would be a nice touch if you could make the tires to reflect that. Not sure how though.

I used to be heavy into modeling - but got divorced years ago and ex-wife "boxed" up all of them and tossed them outside - note - when she "boxed" them up - she must have stomped on them in the box to make them fit... anyway - she destroyed more than 15years of my models - since then I have done only 2 - well 1 and a half - I am working on a p-38 now - been six months and I have finished the interior - why am I working so fast you ask?? hehe -for some reason I sit down to work on it and i'm just not in the right mind set - so it's been a very very slow process this time around...

Anyway - the tire issue - a few of my models I accomplished this detail by assembling the wheel then heating up the "contact patch" of the tire ( do not use an open flame to do this - a heat gun is recommended - and for gods sake don;t hold the wheel with your bare hands and place them in front of the heat blast - if using plyers wrap the assembly so your metal plyers are not touching the surface) anyway - heat up the contact patch of the tire to slighlty soften it - then place the tire on a surface in the upright position (as if it where on the model) and apply very light down pressure to give it the effect... Do not roll the tire or shift it back and forth it has to be light evn pressure and you only get one shot.... I would highly recommend practicing this before you apply it - even after you master this - always make a pratice run with a scrap of the model kit - as every model has it own feel and personality... also wheather (humidity etc...) will have a effect to this technic....

There is aftermarket details that you can order for such things. I get mine from a Company here in my state of Texas called squadron. Here is the link. www.squadron.com (http://www.squadron.com)

I have built about 7 scale aircraft in about a 4 year period. Ranging from fighters to bombers, USAAF, RAF, and Luftwaffe. All in 1/48th scale.

Nice work!!!

If you don't want to go the trouble of flattening the wheels yourself (or if you screw it up) True Details makes a pre-flattened resin set for just a few bucks. Worthwhile.

I'd recommend a wash too. Here's the order I go in.

1. Paint (I always primer too)
2. Gloss coat. This will keep the decals from silvering and protect the paint from your wash. Some use Future as a gloss coat and swear by it, I hate it. I use Krylon Crystal Clear in a rattle can, easy and cheap, available at Wal Mart.
3. Wash. I use either black or burnt umber artist oils thinned down by mineral spirits. When sufficiently thinned you can use the capillary action to flow it through the panel lines. Clean up any residue with a Q-tip.
4. Decal it.
5. Flat coat. I use Testor's Flat Laquer, but lot's of other's available.
6. Pastel weathering. Already some good advice given. One other thing that you might want to try with the pastels is using yellow on some of the panels. Rubbing it in a little will make them appear lighter green making the model a little more "visual".
7. "Wear Weathering" the most difficult part is doing this convincingly. Many techniques, I just try not be too heavy handed.

Come on over to aircraftresourcecenter.com, lots of great people and tremendous modelers. No trolls either, just friendly, helpful people. Great job on that Jug!

Eagle, you'll luv the pastels. The subtle effects you can create will blow you away. Just keep in mind that once on, the model won't tolerate a lot of handling, and clearcoat dull/satin spray fixatives seem to kill the nice effect. Just pastel it and off to the display case.

And for paint chips, try metallic shades of artist pencils.

Pastels do rock, For armor I apply with a brush, and leave it on. For A/C, I do the same thing but carefully rinse w/ warm water (do not rub or in any way touch the pasteled surface; just let the water rinse away the excess dust)
When it dries, (you can use a blow dryer on very low heat) the results are simply awesome in their subteleness.

Heh, small world!! I live in Plano, TX! I used to build models when I was a kid, but haven't built anything in years. I was pretty good too. Won a couple of contests. I've been toying with building a few choice aircraft again and this thread only helps whett my appetite! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You've done a fine job Eagle. Of all of it, I only notice that the cockpit and inside the wheel wells lack much wear compared to the exterior, but I don't have any references here to judge it honestly.

Fine job, thanks for posting it.
