Nice paintjobs! I really admire your attention to detail and thorough research.
The rust on Red 12's nose looks very convincing and the paintchipping around the engines on red 2 is spot on for the scale IMO.

Got some pics using outdoor lighting since it was overcast. A bit too bright as it lost some of the more subtle weathering and came out a little to saturated/contrasted looking compared to in person, but this is where I am at now.
It is also weird how white the base looks here, but when put next to white you can see how not white is is

Going to wait about a week to let the oils dry then do some decaling plus some dull coating and misting coating in a few areas

Definitely have to tone down the gold on the wings

Really, really top notch work.
I got back into the hobby building warbirds.... but theyre a bit cut and shut. The scope of weathering and playing with models from the Star Wars universe is so much bigger and you can seemingly add endless details and weathering little bits here and there that just gets them looking better and better.
Your builds here are a perfect example of that.

Found how much sunlight actually washes out your weathering through a photograph though, quite frustrating. I guess the studio didnt suffer this problem due to the large scale of the models.

Cheers,
Josh

I am building an F-15 and it really is a whole different ball of wax when it comes to painting

as for the studio models, that is one of the reasons they over weathered and added all those odd colored panels. Once under all the lights and processed for film, most of it got lost or turned into barely noticeable changes in colors.

Glorious.
thanks!

You captured the onscreen X-Wing look incredibly well. Like Starks said, top notch work!
