Hi all, just posting a short update on 'White 11', the aircraft that became '00-L' when painted bright red in USAAF hands. This is it so far, but it doesn't look right to me - what else do you think it needs? I know I need to sort oiut the weathering on the undersides to counter the mapping down there, but what else is there?





Hoping to learn something new,

My uninformed opinion is that the rivets need to be a tad (but only a tad) darker/more pronounced. One trick a squaddie of mine used to great effect was to draw two sets of rivets, slighly offset from each other, one in the camo colours and the other in a darker "shadow" colour.

Other than that and the weathering I can't think of anything else.

Thanks for the replies guys. I do use the twin rivet layers myself, but I'll sharpen them up a bit to make 'em more prominent if you like. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
