    That Thunder Bird is indeed amazing! What's your method of choice for applying the weathering?

    The Thunderbird is technically called a Fire Raptor (I know, but yeah it is based on an official Forge World model you can go out and buy)

    Thank you kindly Rowwwsdower! I am using a method based on what I saw in a video by Martin, who runs a channel on Youtube called Night Shift
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNM...qYLdw/featured

    He typically does historical armor, such as WWII tanks. The specific technique I used is from this video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku4comhKHJM

    Basically, you use a brush or a sponge to lighten the base color where you want the chips to go, then you go over it again (with a brush or sponge) using a more neutral/gray color inside of the previous work. This represents the "primer" showing through the scratches. Lastly you go over the interior of the "primer" spots with a metallic color, this represents where even the primer has worn away showing the metal underneath.

    It is a very simple method, the only difficulty I have is to keep things random enough. On a model this size it takes a while to cover everything with random looking blobs of weathering, and it is easy to fall into a trap of just repeating the same motion over and over.
    The other danger is to overdo it, but that is the trouble with all weathering I reckon...

    You know I'm a big fan of your scratch building....so much to enjoy here. Your patience to slowly adapt models and attention to detail is spot on.

    Thanks Coyotebreaks, much appreciated! Yeah I really focused hard on the mood on this, so if that message comes across then I am very happy!

    Thank you Hairster, very kind words. I love the inspiration I get from everyone here, so if I can contribute anything back that is awesome.

    Cheers LoneLemming!

    I finished the ball turrets last night, the last pieces were the sensor lenses above the gun barrels.





    So the last bits are now all in, I will start painting the freehand and logos tonight.
    Planning to do a large freehand raven on the top surface, with the regular blood raven insignias on the sides in front of the ball turrets.

    Here is a MOCKUP of what I plan to do. I'm excited and nervous as all hell at the same time, because I haven't done a freehand piece as large as this before, and I am not sure it will even turn out any good. If you have some suggestions / encouragement, now's the time

    She’s a beaut. And don’t worry about the freehand. You make a mistake, WHOOPS, looks like it’s time for a little more battle damage.

    Thank you very much SaintToad! You are absolutely right, I did it once and I can do it again, and if I can't it becomes damage

    Thank you for the encouragement Hairster! I appreciate your support.


    I started preparing everything last night, starting with a cutout mask to use as a guide on the bird itself. Using the mask I drew lines on the wings and fuselage using a B pencil. I figure the graphite will blend with the scratches even if I don't manage to cover the lines completely. Taking my time and keeping @Hairster and @SaintToad's advice in mind

    (sorry for the blurry image, not sure what went wrong there)



    Then I placed some latex masking fluid on the already-weathered parts that will overlap with the freehand.
    My plan is to completely paint the freehand, then after I remove the masking fluid the battle damage will show through the freehand, so I don't have to try and redo it. @10Ball, shamelessly stealing from you excellent tutorial here!

    Made some progress last night, putting down a silhouette basecoat of dark grey on the outline of the raven.
    Then started on one wing, using a reference to start filling in the basic shapes of the feathers.
    I'm pretty excited about it, usually at this stage things still look like crap but I can see it coming together!

    It is looking a bit purple grey at this stage, due to the red showing through, so I will probably glaze over some dark green at some point to bring it to a more neutral gray.

    Finished up the freehand raven last night. Pretty happy with it!
    The last two pics show the ripped off bandaids I mean masking fluid. These leave the weathering underneath showing through, pretty much as I wanted, although I might go in and tidy it up a bit. The bone white highlights on the quills (or rachis, a new word I just learnt) clash a bit with the exposed metallic bits where the paint has weathered away, so I may have to tone those down.

    Now I have to do the raven insignias on the sides, and the base of course
