Loving this now its painted Daz. Q if i may though. After priming you've sprayed it ally for its 'original; finish' then a deliberate haphazard spray of its green top coat for that very worn effect?

Various greys as an undercoat, top coated with aluminium, then the widest areas lightly sprayed the relevant colours, then the paint layers built up for the more "intact" areas, then the top layers were stripped off using thinners and cotton buds to get to where it is now.

Updates from last night, still loads to do :)

Excellent work daz, love the worn away look you have achieved. Can we have a close up of your cockpit canopy framing, are you "chipping" that too?
