A friend offered me his for free. But, if somebody else wants to offer, I'd be glad to receive as well.

It's a bit of an involved process, it starts with painting. But stuff like streaks and stains, I use pastels.

Hoi PAnam,

Check out www.hyperscale.com, www.aircraftresourcecenter.com, both these sites have had articles on weathering and what options there are. You might need to search around these sites, but it is in there. Also for specific questions you can use the Forums on both these sites and www.fightermodeling.com and this forum (of course).

The ultimate weathering was done for a model F-15 that i got halfway through building, i left it in the shed, which accumulated alot of dust and dirt. It covered the model, and gave it a brilliant weathered look.
All natural effect. I'll post up some pics if theres any interest?

PanAm
When weathering you can use a number of techniques and paints.
I like to mix burnt umber with flat back and then thin the mix 200% or more.
I prefer to use acrylics, less mess and fuss, but I have used artist oils and thinned it with turpentine for WWII stuff.
After you paint the model, shoot a light clear coat to seal it, and then apply your mix to the seams and panel lines. Its okay if you put too much on and it runs just makes sure you get it into the cracks good. Now take a Q-Tip and dip it into some toothpaste. Yes I said toothpaste, and use the gritty kind. Now gently start rubbing the excess mix off until you have just enough showing the panel line.
After you complete the model take a damp cloth and clear off the excess toothpaste, and re-clear coat to seal it in.
I use enamel clear the first time then finish with a light coat of Future floor wax with a quarter mix of Tamiya dull finish.
If you want oily stains add more brown to your mix and less black, for really oily stains use the artist oils, Burnt Umber thinned with Turpintine.

Hello ACMIguy,

What a killer "Operational Test" F-15. Saw this baby when flying here in Europe with the 36th TFW and later the 52nd FW.

Great job,

Henrik.
