1/48 Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair – little to no weathering
This is my second attempt to build a Corsair, I tried something new to me: highlighting with the airbrush. Started from a black base, kept the paint inside the panels as tight as possible along the panel lines, than added some tan to the base color and covered with it a smaller area of each panel, all in all four passes adding more tan each time. Next step was a black pin wash and then a gray enamel filter. To me it looks like bleached by the sun. The build was out of the box, no problems and no improvements as far as I didn't know how this highlighting will go. Hope you'll enjoy the pictures.
P.S. I forgot to "bleach" the canopy, there is visible the base color, Tamiya XF-18.
