Umm luckily Red 5 was never destroyed so maybe with one of my others down the line I can do a Red Leader or Red 3. Sell tickets and nuke it LOL
A big thanks for me, Lonnie. The Studio Scale Modeling forum is a great place to hang out and view some incredible SS pieces. (I only wish I had the time and skills that those people have.) I appreciate you allowing this one to stay for a moment or two.Originally posted by rocketeer25@May 4 2005, 11:13 AM
PS - I think we can let this thread stay here for a few days and then maybe move it over to the SS Modeling forum.Â
Tom that sir is a bald faced lie... I have seen your work, your Enterprise with the red nacelles is UNBELIEVABLE...Originally posted by tommin@May 4 2005, 09:38 PM

Now you are being way too kind. My Enterprise is no where near the quality of this X-Wing. Thank you anyway.Originally posted by Jades Dark Heart@May 5 2005, 07:06 AM

However, I do appreciate the complimentÂ
Interesting idea. How does this work? If all goes well, I will be painting and weathering my PR this summer and all tips and techniques are welcome.I am using water and salt to create a look of weathered chipped paint which can be seen in the next group of pictures.
Awesome work. Great Photos. Thanks for the cool tip as well. Keep up the good work.Originally posted by Jades Dark Heart@May 5 2005, 06:08 PM
Basically all you do is mask the area you want to paint.Â Then using a regular old paintbrush, you brush water on and before it has a chance to dry you sprinkle regualr old table salt on the water.Â Give it about a minute to dry then blow off the excess salt.Â
It really is that simple.Â If you don't like how the pattern turned out just rub the salt off and do it again.Â Once you have the pattern you like just airbrush over it like normal.Â
Once the paint is dry just rub the salt off with your finger and instant paint chips.
I wish I could take credit for it but I found it in an online article and tried it out.Â I was really happy how it turned out.
Hope this helps you.
