I added the decals to my D0-335, then sprayed MMP Matte Clear. I let that dry, then painted over the German insignias witha a mixture of MMP Transparent Medium mixed (maybe 20 drops) with a couple of drops of black to simulate the semi-transparent black the US used over the markings. This looks just like my references.

  1. George, Very cool so far !

  2. Like the very realistic weathering. The section behind the cockpit is fab.

  3. Why do I get the feeling that we'll be seeing this again next month..? 🙂

  4. Looks great - I think you nailed the overpaint work.

  5. Very nice build!

  6. Exceptional, George. Very subtle but very, very carefully crafted. A horribly difficult combination.


  7. Beautiful work George. Stunning indeed.

  8. Thanks everybody. I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.

  9. George,
    This build has been a pleasure to follow. I'd really like to know ho you linked all series article posts together (another topic). Anyway, this is a museum-quality build and I hope you enjoyed building it. Your dedication to the details that are hidden inside this build are a testament to our craft.

    If I could like this more than once I would. Your a true craftsman. Encore!

  10. Matt- Thank you so much for that comment. It means a lot to me and I'm glad that my work is appreciated by such a wonderful group of fellow lovers of the hobby.
