Grymn Flier - XII

All camouflage work done. Most of the details complete or just blocked in black.

Still to do : Metal coat on the diamond plate, edge highlighting of all the panels (urgh! - I hate that bit!), winter weathering.

The picture shows the 8 year old paint job I am trying to match on the largest APC.

Grymn Flier - XI

A flier and a couple of old crow vehicles. Camouflage laid down and (just because I couldn't resist) masking removed to see the green windscreen.

Lots more weathering and detail painting with the hairy stick to be done.

Grymn Flier - X

Group shot of the vehicles. All the 'glass' areas have been airbrushed and blacked out then highlighted up with white ready for either a blue or green glaze. I'm pretty happy with how the airbrush highlight turned out. Once the windows have been complete I shall varnish and then mask them out to paint the camouflage on the main body.

After this the blue Tamiya translucent blue all went a bit wrong - it really is a nightmare to get a smooth thin coverage. Grrr... so back to the black and white highlight by airbrush and a change of direction.

I decided to go for a green tint rather than blue as the general tone of the camouflage scheme is blue-grey so this should stand out more.

Now I have to try and find my bottle of liquid mask...
