Finished off the fighters for my urban scheme Imperials.

Maybe made them too different given they're supposed to be from the same force. Still need to do the Valkyries and Marauders.

You are just missing a bit of unification. When you do different styles you need a thing that is identical across all the models.

That’s kinda what I tried to do on the red stripes on the wings/tails, though maybe doesn’t help that the squadron leaders used yellow/beige for their stripes.

The all red dude is supposed to be Dagor Jarni.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
I would love it if GW released the red decals that they've been using on their own planes (they look too neat to be hand painted, so I'm assuming they're decals).

Red decals would suit the aesthetic I've gone for, the white or black decals don't really suit it.

I agree, on the thunderbolts neither black or white works, colour tone is too light.
The lightnings could do fine with white transfers if you applied it on the darkest colour camos.

How about modifly the leaders stripe, red line whit a thinner yellow line in the center?
Might i allso suggest a different canopy colour to make them stand out a little bit? ( slightly dark blue or a weak copper/gold((or titanium)) could suit them)

I could maybe repaint the Lightning leader's yellow stripes as red, and to set him apart paint the whole leading edge red also.

I think I did make a bit of a mistake making the Lightning's dark band go through the canopy area, as you kind of lose the detail which is around the canopy and fuselage. Might be worth picking out some areas in metallic or light grey near the canopy.

Looking good. I tend to prefer minimal weathering, the only one of mine I bothered to weather was Dagor Jarni, and that was partly because he got a black splotch that I couldn't clean off so I decided to turn it in to weathering, lol.

I have been painting "factory new" since forever so that alone is the reason to why i want to get into weathering; used equipment dont look factory new.
But it is my firsts attempts plus a small scale so it will look overdone anyway i currently do it.

Fair enough, good to try different styles and techniques when you can!

I find some sorts of weathering are easy to do at this scale, some are tricky. Paint chipping I find to be tricky to get looking right on 8mm models. Here's some close ups of my Dagor Jarni as the weathering isn't really visible in the previous image I posted, it's just got some paint chipping on the edges and then some "dirt" in the crevices (at this scale, brown paint blended out roughly). I've seen some really nice weathering on 6mm to 15mm models using powders, but I've never been able to get a good result myself.

It's hard to avoid over doing it, I think this dude is a bit overdone, but given he's an ace it's probably okay that his plane is a bit more worn out.

Yes, i belive i would be more comfy doing it on 28mm then how i feel doing it at 8mm.
Brush strokes gets realy big on 8mm, even if you trim a superdetail brush. (atleast for us that normaly dont paint so small scale as this)

And then it is the visual as you pointed out.
From "far away" you cant see it as the model is small, so it is either suitable for the model but cant be seen unless the model is in your face, or overdone where it can be seen from some distance but looks bad when in your face.

my goal was the latter. (well atleast to the point where you can see it when its on the table while standing next to the table)

What you did to the Ace is suitable for the model size, and looks good in clouse up.

This thread has been too quiet for too long. Post your planes!

These are pretty much finished. Need to come up with snazzy bases for them...

Looking nice! I really like your weathering. I always struggle with weathering on light colours, but that looks really nice.

I've shelved the AI for a while. Still got a bunch to paint but haven't really looked at them for a while.

Thanks bud. They’re not quite white. I went with a very pale ice blue as it makes weathering a tad easier. Though after all the weathering, you hardly notice.

prolly allso lightsource and the eyes.
i seriosuly cant see if it is supposed to be pure white, light grey or light blue, and yes i am beginning to get old age eyes.


still, nice two tone job.
placed my planes on the shelf too as i wait for some product support(all they do is remove products instead of adding them) but i have not that mutch left to paint; 2 lightnings and 1 tigershark.

Though really painted for Epic, it's AI stuff so why not. Some air support on the painting table:
