Hey Joel and fellow modellers,
My colour modulation approach has me frolicking around various parts of the interior, based on nothing more than what Iím in the mood to tackle; in the last day or so thatís been the avionics behind the cockpit. I used this source as a reference:http://www.rolfferch.de/F104G/html/avionik.html
Started with filters to adjust the colour of some of the boxes.
Then added highlights and painted the frame.
Finally, I picked out some of the bolts and fasteners, and put a white base on the little indicator lights so I get a vibrant colour when I paint them red and orange.
The next stages will be adding some more colour, a little decalling and pin washes.
If youíre eager to finish a kit these techniques are not for you, but Iím enjoying the process and like the results. Right now Iím a happy modeller, even if the plastic is in danger of melting under europeís crazy hot sun.
I hope youíre enjoying this blog, and also also your own kits.
