On top of the basic paint job which I try to differentiate with the airbrush, I usually use a little bit of dry brushing, a dark wash and maybe also a light dusty wash with oils mixed with Tamiya thinner. And if it is especially shagged (like the He-111 below) some chipping. Lots of fun to do cockpits. :cheer:

I use a mixture of various premixed solutions like AK, Ammo of Might, Oil paints and Tamiya weathering sets and a graphite pencil.

Thanks again for the responses! What gloss coat do you you use before the washes if any? Thanks.

I use the Mig Ammo and AK products as well as home made oil paint concoctions. Graphite pencils and watercolour pencils for scrapes and chipping. I also use the hairspray technique for chipping and dry brushing to highlight details. I dip clear parts such as HUDs in clear to get them looking more like glass. I don't use a gloss coat if I want the washes to stain the base colours, but if I want to add pin washes I use Tamiya X-22 clear thinned with Mr Levelling Thinner.

Yeah I don't tend to gloss coat interiors either, exteriors are different. For the dials I use the Aqua stuff from AK it's the best I've seen. I used it on the goggles of my figure I recently did here.

That looks great! I still use the Microscale Krystal Clear for my dials. Doesn't turn out anywhere as effective as that. Where did you buy your AK stuff Gary?
