I kept a model in a draughty shed for a couple of winters - looked like cr*p! Does that count? ;)

Lol not really the answer I was looking for but at least it's probably a good way to keep a model longer than I'm used to :oops:

LMFAO :lol:

John Redman of Horizon Hobby in the US did a 'build' set of videos for their 30cc P47 a few years ago - in the last few of the series he goes on about and demonstrates adding scale detail and weathering to an ARF warbird without going over the top. I reckon it'll be exactly what you're after Scott.

This should take you to a playlist of the videos...
