Great build Ernest and really appreciate you sharing the way you went about weathering the plane. Lots of tips to remember.

Great build earnest. Most of my painting wouldnt stand the macro shots you did. Awsome detail in the cockpit, looks very good. Like the overall finish and weathering, it was a pleasure to read this. Just one little comment if I may... I feel detail in the cowling could use a bit of was and fading highlights, it really looks untouched.

Hi. May I ask what paint colour(brand etc) you used for the overall coat.
