My friends, thank you for yours wishes.

I made next test of painting, I painted big surface according principles of painting which i used in 72 scale.









I was painting by flat brush and Lifecolor paints mixed with small quantity of water.
When result of this test seems for me acceptable I dared to paint my plane.
Results you can see beneath.

Hello Adam:  As has been said by many here, the streaking is a difficult scheme to paint.  It is all subjective.  I think yours looks convincing and you did a good job.  As the model comes together it all sort of works out.  There are as many techniques as there are modelers.  Your work is outstanding and I am watching with interest as you progress on this build.

Thank you, Mark.
Yours comment was a motivating factor, to to continue the work.
I sit down in my workshop. This is my temporary workshop. in turn of the year I'm plannig to make better.



I set to paint  black crosses on the upper wing.







I couldn't  find any picture of my model, I found only left side  painthing drawings, so I decided paint similar to the Hptm von Tutschek's plane from 12 Jasta. Black cross with white edging will be paint on the black surface.
Never paint black on black, so I'm chose one of color from Lifecolors set for painting rubber.
I will be next very big test for me.

Adam.

I love your working desk, especially for the beer!!!!!
The use you make of old CDs is really ingenious.

Getting back to the model, I like very much the way you painted streaking, you're going very well!

Nice job on the beer mug. It looks very realistic.  ;)

Cheers,

Hello Adam:

I like the black crosses and markings of Von Tutschek.  It is not flashy but very attractive and business like.  Your work space looks a lot like others I have seen, including mine to include the occassional adult beverage! ;D

Today first time I used masks for painting.
Sticking on masks and painting was without any problems.
But removing masks was nearly cause of heart attack.  :'(



I will have to manage with this problem.  :-\

All others crosses are looking well.  :)  in my opinion.

Sorry to read of your mishap, Adam, but as Gregory has said, the repair is not too difficult.  Good luck.
Cheers,
Bud

You've chosen an excellent scheme. I may have to do one myself, when I crack open my extra Encore kit. Looks sharp.
