I realize one key to getting an airplane to look like it has real natural metal is to vary the shade of the panels. One thing I wonde is how to get that oxidized look. There is a look in between the show stopping F104Cs that I have seen reall picture of and various USAF planes for example that almost look like they have gray paint on them, but in real photographs are obviously in natural metal. Except I supposed it has oxidized a bit. Doe sthe Alcad line have that look. Is ther something tha one can add gray paint to in small amounts with out messing up the metal effect or the pigments not mixing? By the way I noticed this look on a lot of Soviet planes.
