Below are the pictures of the painting process. The parts were first sprayed with mr surfacer 500, then a base layer of alclad steel was used. A technique I learend from Ako Hobby for weathering was incorporated here. Mr Masking Sol was used on top of the dried steel layer for simulation of paint chipping. On top of that the various parts received the second base coat for pre shading purposes. The final layer of paint was applied and then the masking sol was removed using masking tape. I'm fairly pleased with the results for the first time of using this technique.
Below are pictures after the first coat of future was applied. This was followed by the decal process, and then another coat of future. A wash of dark gray was used and then the final coats of future + flat base was added.
Below are pictures of the base. A square wood base was sanded down then using acrylic medium + baking soda to create a tarmac like base. This was then slighly sanded and a layer of mr surfacer 500 was sprayed. Alclad Jet Exhaust was used as the final color for the base. I printed out a template of the Pegasus insignia and sprayed on red to completed the base. A link to the completed page will be posted when I complete the kit and finish taking pictures.
