I concur.

I'd rather under-do the chipping than over-do it.

In fact, I mix my silver chipping paint with grey paint to lower the brightness of the silver.

Glad you both like it!  I go very light on the paint chipping, if any at all, on these desert paint scheme.  The color photos I have seem to indicate this was the case, and I can never really get the right effect on them anyways when I try.

Great job, the weathering is really good. There's no way I could handle any of these small scales anymore  Smiley
Thanks!  Between my worsening eyesight and shaky hands that come with age, this wasn't an easy build for me, but these smaller scales take up less room on the display case and usually cost less than their bigger cousins.

Really nice job and I like that it's markings you don't normally see. Really good job on the weathering as well, looks nicely faded and didn't go overboard on the chipping and especially the panel lines which so many do and takes away from the look, you have a really realistic finish.

Sometimes I had trouble with Future, not sure what, maybe I needed more coats? Often enough I didn't seem to get the gloss.

Just finished it a bit ago.  Unfortunately, it appears I lost the pitot tube I had previously broken off.  I'll keep looking for it although I have the unpleasant feeling it ended up in the trash at some point, so if I don't find it I'll have to steal one from another of my unbuilt AMT kits.

That being said I'm pretty happy how this one turned out, although there are always more or better things that can be done.  The photos really show how thick the clear parts are, making me think about using vacuform ones in the future, although I really don't like working with them.

As long as you don't "pool" the Future or start it sagging, it lays down in the end.
It looks too thick but after two days of curing you can even see scratches.
I have to admit that it is harder to handle than say Testors GlossCote but I do like it when it can be laid down just right.
Your airbrush has to "atomize" it well and you need a light to see how heavy you go.
Also, I have misted on a tiny bit to start...from a distance.  This little mist coat allows it to hang on to something.
I only suggest practice and you may start liking it.

 Don't we always end up working in an 8 inch square?  
8"? I wouldn't know what to do with that much space!

Looking great, Vince! I noticed how shiny your Future coat is. I think that's one of my issues with using it. I'm so afraid of applying too much that would fill the engraved panel lines that I probably don't apply enough for a really good glossy coat for the decals.
