I have this feeling: the uneven surface will magically sand off into a perfect-looking weathered finish.
We'll all end up applauding your ingenuity and, by this time next week, we'll all be stealing your new 'technique'!!!   :cheers:

Well here's hoping..... It's not just the texture: the brown's gone white where the varnish is thickest, i.e. in the deepest corners and the hinge-lines of the control surfaces, which are exactly the bits you want darker, hence the intention to touch up with pencils. Alternatively, I might see how a thin ink wash does.

At least the kit's moulded in silver plastic, so if I do over-sand it a shade on edges/raised detail, it'll still look like weathering!

Heck, Weaver that is looking GREAAAAT!
I wish I had seen your masking technique a week ago, it would have saved me a lot of problems. Oh well, we live and learn as my Granny used to say.

COME ON H!! I am dying to see this thing finished,
I have an old Airfix one of these, that will get the Honduras treatment, I won't be quite as adventurous though with the seating arrangement, it will stay a tandem CAS bird. Oh and the T-33 you got for me is nearly done as a forward air control jalopy.

Okay, here we go. Not too terrible, but it'll need so much touch-up that it would probably have been easier to hand-paint it in the first place  :rolleyes:. I decided not to darken the darker green in the end - still not sure if that was the right call or not..... :unsure:

Superb!

Nice paint job, almost Israeli, if not quite!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Nice paint job.  It almost looks like the colors faded to pastels...

I wouldn't worry about darkening the deeper green----all your colors flow nicely together as is.
Hey, I just read your post in the Tips section re: your prior airbrushing problems----did you ever find an alternative to the spraycan propellant?
