Ok - almost there - here's a quick snapshot of the panel line work done on the underside, just before I laid down an oil filter to knock back the brightness of the white. Panel lines were made with .02 pencil and pastel chalk powders. I've added some additional oil staining since these pics with Tensocrom, and darkened the exhaust staining, and some other detail work.
I was a bit disappoint how much the panel line work disappeared on the dark blue of the upper surfaces. I'm now going to need to work a bit more to bring some "life" to those huge slabs of dark area.
You can see that I unfortunately had a bad case of decal silvering. They looked like they were going down excellently, and I had really prepped the surface (I thought), but after everything dried - well, it speaks for itself. I'm still messing with them, trying all the tricks to make more of it disappear. They were all aftermarket, and sometimes you just never know...
