This E4/B of
JG53 'Pik As' during the fall of 1940. This plane uses markings from Aeromaster,
and a cockpit tub from KMC. The wheels are True Details resin items if
Weathering was done using Winsor & Newton watercolors + pastels. The methodology for application and removal is 100 % identical to the technique used in the chlak pastel panel line article in the ARC Tools n Tips section, except that I used Winsor & Newton Watercolours. Just a bit out of the tube and some tap water. Just the barest amount of moisture was required to remove the excess colour. It was tedious as heck but it produces good results. I used Tamiya Flat for a final sealer.
Enjoy the photos.
