'gtbred'.....saw your pics on 'other side' and read comments on weathering using cotton swabs. But your 'wash' what does it consist of....is a diluted 'grey', which paint brand (acrylic / enamel). Do you spray a top-coat before??

I trying the soapy water/pastel method for my 700 scale models....it looks pretty good, to me.

But I do want to weather larger decks....A/C carriers for my 800 scale Arii ships, would your method work for me???

Thanks for your time, and Super Build!!

[quote="BB62vet"]GTBred,

You might try Stan Cedarleaf - he made some custom decals for my NEW JERSEY project a couple years ago. Here's his contact info:

Cedarleaf Custom Decals
3386 N Windsong Dr Apt 213
Prescott Valley, AZ 86314-1226
email - scedarleaf@aol.com

Not entirely sure he's still in business, but give him a try!

Hope this helps,

Hank. The decals from Stan are beautiful. Great work Just order decals for CVA-62 air wing and marking for the ship.

Nicely weathered flight deck. What techniques are you using?

Light grey still wet and smear with a wet cotton cloth.

Looking great so far gtbred! :thumbs_up_1: Please share more close up photos if you can, its such a big ship. Good luck with your airwing ^^) Its usually that part people start loose their patience in their build since its taking forever and its repetitive to replicate. Just hang in there

Mark does not make special decals any more. Boatswain no longer on the web. I will try other websites to see if they can do the job for me.

See if Mark of Starfighters can make decals for both America and Kitty Hawk. Try to make them myself and fail 3 times.

May have to get someone to make decals for my custom air wing. Boatman seems to be no longer in service. I tried to make decals on my own. But they look terrible. Anybody willing to take on my project? My money good.
