Football War FAH Finished

I've just finished the Honduran aircraft for the Corsairs and Cavaliers Wings at War project, with a coat of gloss varnish on the canopies just drying off now. They came out alright despite some headaches with the wing tip stripes and tail stripes, which weren't as difficult to do as I first thought. I still have the DC-3's to paint but they are identical to the FAS ones, so I'll do all four or five of them at the same time. I'm now going to move on to the Salvadoran aircraft, which should be a lot more interesting to paint due to their funky camouflage!


  1. Those look great.



  2. Beautiful!

    Did you make the small markings with a brush?

    I also have another beginner question but how do you make your canopies? Just light blue and a touch of white on top?

    I'm curious about your painting techniques as I'm looking to improve mine =)!

    Best regards.


  3. Hi Remi,

    The markings are all brush painted, which is a bit fiddly but the only way to do them.

    The canopies are two shades of blue then a little bit of white, followed by a gloss varnish. Some people like to paint lines for the frame in black or another shade, but I don't bother as it's too much trouble and doesn't always look right.

    They TD models are fun to paint and you don't need many for a good game.

    1. Thank you very much for this answer!

      Yes, I love painting these models!I'm working on two projects in parallel: golf war and another one I could tell you about soon :p !

      My problem with painting is that I still want to be too perfect so I paint very slowly! I have to paint only what can be seen !
      I am currently trying to progress and find my "tricks".

    2. I have the same dilemma but with the 1/600 scale models I've decided not to be too fussy about detail and just get them on the's a different story with 1/285th scale aircraft, which take me ages as i want them to be just right!
