Thanks for that - just ordered some of the Vallejo thinners to try.  :)

Yes, you are absolutely right.
I thin this (modelAir) paint 1:2 with the original Vallejo thinner. It takes some getting used to... That paint much different from Tamiya's acrylics.

I wondered this myself and decided after looking at photo's that it appeared to be cut into the fuz and open (ie without a spring loaded flap) so that's the way I'm making it on the current model.  :)

Love how this one is shaping up - such an inspiring thread.

May I ask what you are thinning your 'Model air' paint with (I'm continually having trouble with it drying in the airbrush. At the moment I'm using distilled water and adding some Vallejo glaze medium or retarder)  :-\

Gorgeous work Gary!  FWIW, NATO Black is my "go to" black for most things.  I took the advice of Sir Harry Woodman and avoid pure white and pure black. I think I'm going to have to mix a couple of custom off-whites to use with my NATO Black from Tamiya. (I need one in a grey tone and one in a warmer brown/yellow tone.)

I'm totally with you on this. I like to scale down all my colours, and find that bright tones make for a very toy-like appearance to models in general. I find with decal manufacturers, some have given a toned down look to their markings...but the WnW national crosses on this model (for example) are harsh black-on-white and need some work to fade them down. I'm actually looking at my Aviattic lozenge, in that it's not very faded and looks like it's wearing a brand new set of pajamas. Not sure how I'll sort that out just yet.
Cheers,
Gary

I think maybe that it influenced Polikarpov with his designs. maybe not sure.

Thanks Andrew. I spend half my time overcoming my ham-fistedness it seems. I'll solve one problem, and accidentally cause another for the next step!  ::)  I hope to get enough done this week or this weekend to post more.
I thought I had decided on the markings and color schemes for each a/c, but I've been made aware of some conflicting evidence, so I have to sort that out.
Thanks for following along.
