Looking really good, Austin.

Question about the wash on the flaps, though. Why use red?
To make it look like the inside is painted red.
Gotcha.
I never knew that about the Helldivers

Thanks for the great comments guys!

And here are some photos of the model (the camera made the royal blue look a little lighter in most of the pics):

Looks great! I agree, you did a nice job getting that shading to show through the dark paint. And the brakes were a very nice touch. Good work!

Thanks for the reply, Austin! I've used Windex to clean the brush, but haven't yet tried it as a solvent for acrylics, I'll have to try.

I agree with the others, you've got a nice effect going on the panel lines. And the wash for the dive brakes was a good touch. The Army used red for the interior on the dive brakes, too, on their versions of the SBD (A-24 Banshee, they called it), and the SB2C (which was the A-25, to the Army, using the same name as earlier ground attack planes from Curtiss--the Shrike).

Just finished watching your big finish video Austin, great job! The dio looks great, and works well to display both of your pacific birds.
