I thought it would be appropriate on this 70th anniversary of D-Day to post something I have never tried before... tiny planes! This is an entirely different experience.
It requires a completely different mindset and approach. As tiny as the Memoir 44 infantry is, this plane is even smaller! Simply figuring out what all the little parts are can be a challenge in itself.
Some of you might also notice that I decided to sneak in some metallic paints! Yes indeed. I did that in a few ways... mixing in a blue/silver color with my bluish grays. I also did a few transparent glazes of metallic in certain areas.
As you can see in these views, I attempted to make the silver facing the ground warmer, or more of an earth tone.
It was a little bit difficult at first, I must admit, since I never work with metallic paints. I have done so in this 'mixed' fashion.
A few more views... the next one will show you what I was trying to replicate.
And here we have it. Now I can't wait for it to fly around and do some damage on the battlefield!!!
