Painting & Decaling the wingsI bought Naval hexagon and clear doped linen decals from AVIATTIC. Both products are great and higly recommended.
|I bought the printed naval hexagon decals. |
They are almost completely opaque
and were applied over a white base coat.
I used Mr.MARK SETTER for better adhesion.
|For Natural doped linen I opted for the translucent decals. |
I airbrushed the underpainting over a white base coat using
different shades of tan color.
|Rib detail was done by masking off the ribs whith thin stripes |
of masking tape (0.7 mm).
|Close up showing the fabric effect of Aviattic´s decal. |
The decal film is thicker and more elastic than the
solid naval hexagon decals.
|A teaser to keep the moral high.|
|Floats are still missing. But it gives you an idea |
how the diorama will look when finished.
