We show a full range of different techniques and materials, from the most commonly used and most effective to some household items that you can take advantage of for most projects. In this practical issue, you will learn how to modify a kit to represent damage to both the airframe and other parts and components that must be altered separately.
Of course, throughout the painting processes, we will see how to simulate the weathering effects caused by the crash landing or the passage of time unique to era and scenario. This means that the building materials of the various machines shown and the weathering effects they are subjected to are each unique, even some even come from a galaxy far, far away. For this issue, we gathered teaching tools and inspiration from some best modellers around, each has contributed their unique style to help you to enjoy beautiful and accurate K.O. subjects even more.
