 I’m not usually one for much weathering, but my new C420 acquisition is very shiny and very Cornell Red.  I would like to use a black wash on the grills & top walkways/fans, leaving some red underneath.  I’d love to hear what works best for a first timer. EF8053ED-BD55-4DF1-A3E0-B67A1A6C4D95AEE4C41B-C6DF-4145-A270-02D6CDF923ED

Jack-Tamiya panel line is great, thanks for the tip.  Amazingly easy to use to just add a little depth.

Buck-I’ve already liberated some of the wife’s makeup brushes, and some weathering chalk from the LHS.  Figured I would practice on a $5 boxcar first.  

Mike-it’s amazing how much just adding that little bit of depth can transform.  The PA’s look great!
