Instruction: Nozzle staining according to Tomas
I’d like to share with you a little tutorial on how to paint nozzles on modern aircraft.
For the show, I chose the Aires nozzles for the F-15E 1/48
Step 1 – Mr.Surfacer 1000 (1500)
Step 2 – Glossy Black Tamiya X-1
Step 3 – Ring – Alclad Aluminum ALC-101
Step 4 – Inner Nozzle Side – Deck Tan Tamiya XF-55
Step 5 – Fastening Ring – Pataminator Tamiya Burn blue
Step 6 – mask the ring and the inner side of the nozzle and spray the paint mix. Alclad Aluminum and Jet exhaust
Step 7 – Chrome Chrome Tamiya X-11 drybrush
Step 8 – Smoothing the matt black Tamiya XF-1 from the inside of the nozzle
I think it’s a simple tutorial and the result does not look bad at all. Perhaps it will help somebody for better results.
Thanks for your attention
