Dirtying up the centreline tank. Happy with the effect so far.

Nice mate! Mind sharing your techniques and colours used to get that effect on your tanks? They look incredible!

Hi Jimmy, I tore off pieces of sponge in random shapes and sizes, dipped in various wash mixes, rubbed excess off on paper towels and dabbed on. Manipulated and softened effect using a clean piece of sponge.

Centreline tank almost done. Added a blackish mixture with the sponges and also vertical streaking.

Sponges are my friend. Super really rude word this is good work. I hope Tamiya is keeping tabs. You are making an outstanding job of a top kit. Just awesome

Thanks Bishop.

I treated the upper sides of the wing tanks in the same way as the centreline tank. I still feel these need a little more weathering. Maybe just a little more subtle streaking with a light dusty colour.

Masked off the areas on the rear that will be receiving the metal treatment. Haven't decided exactly which colours I am going to use to achieve the effect I'm after.

In the meantime I sprayed the afterburner cans with Tamiya Dark Iron enamel thinned with Tamiya lacquer thinner. Will drybrush these to achieve the burnished effect and then spray on a lightened mixture of the dark iron in the centres of the segments in a misting fashion.

yeah, ive seen some amazing colours being used by people, but there's also so many variations out there, and I'm guessing with the millions of photos of Phantoms, the lighting has a huge part to play in how the rear section looks. Be keen to see what you come up with mate.

Drybrushed the afterburner cans with metallic grey and began metalising the rear end with Alclad aluminium and duraluminium.

Going away for a couple of days, so after clearing all of my modelling gear off the dining room table and packing the F-14 away, I decided to drag out this beast.

As well as doing some more work on the metal work at the tail end, I have done some more work on the cockpit. Just a couple of handles to be glued in place and then she's ready for the glazing.

Working on the metal. Once I'm happy with all the shades I will dirty it up a bit. Feeling a little nervous about this part of the build.

Oh yeah, that's going to take some weathering nicely.

Good onya, looking good. I always worried about applying very thinned paints on, thinking that the thinners will effect the coat of paint underneath...

I thought that photo looked pretty good on my phone, but it's looking pretty ugly when I see it online. Looking more like I've used a base coat of light blue than duraluminium, lol. Going to try and add some slight heat discolouration with clear blue and maybe brown. I used clear bluet on my 1/48 RF-4E and it looked okay. I really only want a hint of it showing though.

I also did some more work on the horizontal stabilisers. I am pretty happy with how they're looking after I toned down that darker colour with an overspray of the Alclad Duraluminium.

Xtr3me, I just sprayed it really low pressure and made sure not to flood the surface.

A little buffing with a cotton bud and I'm liking the effect.
