1/144 Revell Ekranoplan Paint
Updated: Jul 23, 2018
Since this thing is going to look pretty distressed, I figured I should a metallic base to it. I'm assuming these things were made from aluminum, but some of my references show some rusting of the fuselage. I wouldn't put it past the Soviets to have made these things out of cold rolled steel. I'll add some rust later.
I used Mr Paint white and black primers and followed up with MRP Anodized Aluminum followed by spots of Alclad Aluminum. This will for a base for some heavy duty paint chipping later on. I figure about 2-3% of these metaliics will show up in the final model.
This is all in prepartion for another MiG-31 I plan to build in the near future.
