Arrow (1/100) Skymarks US AIRWAYS B737-400 Last color

Sorry it took a few days to update...

First, I was extremely tired, went to bed early for a couple of days,
so I wasn't able to finish the models.

Second, I had some problems with enamel coming off from the wheel.
Enamel stays well on plastics, but I guess not on metals.
I think I'm going to have to use the acrylic paints for later models.
Tamiya does make both enamel and acrylic paints so I guess I'll have to try.

Here is one of my favorites, US AIRWAYS B737-400!!
This model is no where to be found these days.
I was lucky and a dear friend from Canada sent this model to me.
I abosolutely love this model and it's too bad that we can't see this bird anymore.

I had to take another shot for this one with wheels visible.

I used Tamiya "Royal Blue" and it works just fine as is. No need to mix the color.

This picture, you can really see the result.
Outside hub is again Tamiya "Royal Blue" no mix.
Inside hub is Tamiya "Sky Grey" then weathered with "TWM" "Oil Stain"
I used "Oil Stain" on both side, but outside is just light touch only a couple of times,
inside is heavily used until I thought it looked good.

Again and again, can't to much on the nose wheel as it has a flat surface...
If you look closely like this, it is like hmm... well... ok... but
if you look at the 1st and 2nd picture, it's OK. I think... Better than shinny chrome...
Tamiya "Sky Grey" with "TWM" "Oil Stain"
