A big engine needs to drive a big propeller.

Have you been sitting in the sun for too long today? The only way that aeroplane will fly is if I take it work, otherwise it is grounded for ever!

Well i was able to do some serious weathering on the model today. I use pastels and shave the dust off each one and apply it with a small brush or for a larger area use my fingers to rub it across the surface. I don't have any weathering powders so this the technique i have to use.

A few photos of the weathered beast.
I want it to look dirty, dusty and well used.

The gunbays have a small amount of weathering now, but i still want them to be quite clean.

The wheels will need some more dust and a bit of mud as well, but this is a good start.

I did have one minor / major issue today and that was the right main gear strut getting damaged when i bumped it. So rather then mess around with gluing it I pulled it off, drilled the centres out and put a brass rod in to strengthen it. I will need to glue it into place tomorrow.

On a positive note, theres really no more work to do on the beast so I started with a baseboard.

A 600mm x 450mm piece of laminated chipboard is the base. This enables the aircraft to sit on a shelf where i can see it.

I sprayed the board with contact adhesive and did the same to a piece of cordoroy material. Once this was on and nicely in place i mixed up some plaster, added some burnt umber paint to give it a nice brown colour.

This was plastered onto the material and left to start drying.

A few hours later i started on the scatter, static grass, bushes and flowers. The result is quite good and once the plaster is completely dried i will be adding some Woodlands Scenics Realistic Water into the wheel ruts.
