Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc Eduard 1/48 ww2 aircraft model – Part 2
I paint the wheels and propeller with black Vallejo color. When using high-quality flat brush, then result is same as spraying with an airbrush. I recreate the engravings with a razor saw blade. I wash the whole model with soap and water before spraying paint. I remove dust from the rivets with the airbrush. The color used at the bottom of the aircraft is mixed from these paints: XF-19 XF-71 XF-2. I mixed the light gray blue color from XF-18 XF-21 XF-24. I cover some parts with adhesive rubber Korex gumfix. I mixed the green color from XF-58 and XF-62. Postshading with very much diluted black XF-1. I fixed the whole model with gloss varnish Gunze Super Clear III. I use Mr Mark Setter a Mr Mark Softer for setting and softening the decals. I mixed black oil wash from oil Umpton paints and thinner called Mig thinner for washes. I use a hair dryer to speed drying. It dries within 5 minutes and wash can be easily wiped off. I have indicated dusting on wheels with pigments from Mig production. I have indicated scratches with lighter shades. I made further weathering with oil paints. You can easily make a mirror above the cockpit from the silver foil. Another weathering using oil paints.
