        • Awesome!!! I did the same thing when I got mine... After I started with the green patches, it felt as though it was a never ending project!!!

              Way to go! Looks fantastic.....(even if I may be a bit biased on this one he he). Looks very realistic and I remember these in our small Air Force back in the 80’s.

              • Just to prove that people do read and learn from all the useful information that gets posted on here - My first attempt at weathering my FMS Tigercat, using all the tips I learnt from Hobbysquawk and elsewhere.
                I know it's not completely scale, but I just wanted a highly visible scheme.
                Thanks you all for sharing your knowledge, and adding to my enjoyment of our hobby.
                And thanks to Callie Graphics for the excellent service.

                              • Thanks man. I had a few paint peels. I also stuck a soldering iron into the nose by accident while making an 8" extension for the nose gear. But a little puttty, sanding, and paint made it all go away.

                                I hand sketched the peeling paint effect then cut out a paper mask. Worked just fine.

                                Also I used this Post-It note tape that I found while in Joann's Fabrics with the wife. It works great and does not lift paint off foam.

                                  • Really love to customize the birds and make them stand out at the field, amazing what a little work can do for these great plans from Motion RC

                                    • You guys are amazing. I have zero aptitude for all this painting and weathering.

                                      • Here is the bird with scale tanks and a few more decals. The placement of the flag on the back is correct for another aircraft in this squadron. I changed the tail paint scheme slightly from the original. The camo tanks are correct as referenced in two photos. I personally believe these tanks were temporary and were probably borrowed from another anniversary painted aircraft in this squadron.
