In fact more than the raw aspect, it is ultimately a weathered metal effect (oxidation, burning...) that seemed interesting to replicate on this kit. For this, I took an old brush, and I thrumed a first panel with Gunze Steel, And then I had a moment of stress, as I felt like I messed up the panneling. Messed up for messed up, I continued, and it began to look like to something and I start tweaking in varying color regularly. So there Steel, metalic grey, silver, chrome, Burnt iron, Gun metal, and a bit of copper, mainly on pale burnt panels.

Some panel edge effects are done along Tamiya tape.

I'm pretty happy with the result

At the end of this torturing episode for him, the brush now looks like a flower.

A black wash in the recessed panel lines completed the painting step.
