today is my
Dragon Ju 88 C6 Kit NO. 5536 in
I further detailed my Ju 88 with pre-painted Eduard photo etch seat belts. The antenna wire was done with EZ Line (Fine).
For painting I used:
White was rolled up with a piece of sponge (thumbnails large) (only small areas about 5 x 5 cm) then with the same sponge, in the direction of flight, damp, blurred, creating fine stripes without covering, repeated until it pleases, then with fine Sandpaper in the direction of flight without pressure easily "sanding", which breaks the edges, then set with the airbrush light white mist and then "sand", then white opaque and cloudy to the touch of feeling.
Finished with pigments and chalk. Dirt and traces of wear, exhaust fumes from rust, Alclad Black Primer and Gray.
The Dragon models were celebrated in their day, probably more damned today, but I find despite the many work with spatula and Evergreen plastic still worth seeing and a pleasure in construction
