Special Hobby Polikarpov i-16 1/32

A big kit with loads of resin and PE parts. All parts fit well, no flash on the sprues. I chose the weatherbeaten, well worn look. I don't know why as my experience in this is very limited and looking at YouTube tutorials, my products are limited to spray and hand paints, and no powders etc.

I changed the exhausts to alloy tube witha clear blue to show the heat.

The other thing I learnt was that if I chose a similar look I won't put on so many coats, to rub through, but will add a silver coat onto the grey undercoat, so that when rubbing through it will highlight the worn paint areas more realistically

You might not have all the powders and tints but man, you nailed the weathered look. Its just right. 

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.
