Some tips on painting realistic scale models

Hi all. I’ve had a lot of people asking me about techniques used to make your scale model look more realistic. Really, all it boils down to is practice and the use of an Airbrush. It’s really not that hard. You just won’t know unless you have a go. Here is a series of pics of my Airfix 1/24 scale Fw190 currently going through the process. I hope it helps or at least inspires. G’day to Ray Bakerjian, these are all the pics I could find. Andrew.
