Last night I got a little weathering on the tail.



I found a good reference photo to use as a loose guide.



I like the minimal staining which was achieved by a bit of blended dry-brushing with just a little of the top color at the end to touch it up.

Oh, so there's a wingless B-1 lying around somewhere? 1/72 F-15 wings would fit it quite well.  ;) Either keep it 1/144 or use a 1/72 bubble canopy (again from an Eagle?).
 

Neat concept.  One of us BTSers otta build it.

Like touch of subtle weathering.  It works !

Oh the 1/144 B-1B did not stay wingless, in fact it was made wingless on purpose.

So I could fit 1/48 Skyray wings:
