A little (or maybe too much) weathering on my P-51B

Hi guys,

Some weeks ago I posted pics of my first model - the 1/48 Tamiya P-51B.

I now applied some chalk to mark the panel lines. Guess I have overdone it a bit and could have used a better (darker) chalk color.

But nevertheless I think it makes the model look better.

What do you think?

I am looking forward to work on my next oneĀ“s.

Cheers,
Michael

Looks OK, kind of looks dusty, like it's in a hot dry climate. The one thing you have to watch for when you want to weather a model, something that is often missed by a lot of modellers, is you have to weather the whole a/c or it just looks odd. In your case those tires would only look right in a rain storm. Overall pretty good work for your first finish.

appreciate your feedback.

Saw that too with the tires and added some "dirt" as well.

I also reduced the effect a bit and it looks better now.

Looking forward to finish my other models.

Cheers,
Michael

if you could and make the tires a little dirty. After following your posts I was expecting a lot worse from the sound of them yet you pulled if off quite well-and it isn't easy to do! Yes, it may be a little heavy in places but I really like it and think you did a great job! Next model you will know what to do and not to do right? Great job. This is one thing I admire about you is your desire to try something new. Keep it up it as it looks like you are on the path to being a fantastic modeler! Keep experimenting and asking questions too! I'll help when I can!

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
