This is a great build... It looks splendid. It's super great that you share what products you use, and that you take the time to explain your process.
Kit decals with the exception of the number 9 - that's from a Hasegawa Grosser Hund kit ( Ma.K. )
Raw umber watercolor filter to remove the blue component of the grey-green base color .
Affixed with AK satin varnish .
Then sepia and burnt umber watercolor wash for panel lines and weathering .
Affixed with AK satin varnish then finished with AK ultra matte varnish ( love that stuff . Straight into the AB , one coat and done . )
Lots of time in-between coats of varnish sitting in the dehydrator @ 105F .
Getting closer .
Still needs some detailing on the pipes and the radiators , then the canopy completion , landing gear installation and finally the prop .
This thing might be done before the leaves begin to fall .
