Hi Nick! As soon as it's just dry enough, I have an old cotton t-shirt I wrap around my index and middle fingers and SLIGHTLY moisten and go. Change positions on t-shirt often or you'll end up rubbing the wash around instead of removing it. 8)

Thanks,  Ive used Game workshop and Valejo washes before.  They clean up a bit differently, but ill try the cotton shirt next.

The build is looking amazing from the kill tags to camp its a top notch job.

I've been really patient on this build and I'm liking the results. Still a little way to go, but I can see the light in the tunnel getting closer! I'll be watching your Enterprise B build. Thanks Nick. 8)

nice job on the chipping it looks realistic.  did you use a tooth brush.

also the decals really laid down nice.

Hi Nick, I cut the corner of a sponge, dab it in the paint cap and remove MOST of the paint by blotting it on a paper towel. Kinda like dry brushing with a sponge. Lightly dab it on the place you need it, but it takes a little practice to not overdo it or blob it on because you left too much paint on the sponge. You can cut it into different angles and shapes to get the desired effect and you can simply cut the painted part of the sponge off and reuse it. I also use a fine tip brush too!
As for the decals, I spend a LOT of time applying Micro Sol to get them to settle into the panel lines like that and they are EagleCal decals, which are much better than kit decals.
Thanks for looking! 8)

Do you use hairspray or chipping fluid?

Chipping is done now so the next step is some dull coat. After that, then some random weathering.
I had to re spray the bottom port wing because in my haste I applied the wash before the clear coat dried completely and it seeped into the clear coat. Now I have to re apply the gloss coat and do the wash again...2 day penalty for impatience on my part! :(
Keep in mind that an overall dull coat will tone down the contrast of the chipping/paint/stain color and will allow me to do some restrained final weathering. The re painted port lower wing looks grey in the pic, I don't know why, but its a couple shades of Lt. intermediate blue . Here's where I'm at now...

Neither I'm hoping to get into it one day. 

If you in Detroit come over ill show you some lighting and you show me some chipping.

I'm sticking a fork in this one. Learned a lot painting with an airbrush on this build and I'm pretty happy how it turned out. Finished just in time to give to my Son for his Birthday!
Thanks for looking and thanks for the encouragement everyone gave throughout this build. 8)
