    Steve would you like some help with stuff like bump maps? Or a bare metal exterior? Keep up the good work!

    Hey Rick. I would very much welcome your help on those items once I get the panels and rivets done. I'm particularly interested in what I'll call the "Half and Half" schemes with OD on the top surfaces and bare metal on the bottom. Your touch on the metal surfaces would be a real treat.

    Glad to help! Just PM me when ready. If you can, keep the rivets & lines on their own layers. I'll do some effects treatment to them prior to turning them into part of the bumps. Would be happy to help compliment all your hard work there.

    Oh Wow! What Duckie said. The wear and tear and fade is simply stunning work Marshal. Very realistic.

    And we all benefit from that break. Sometimes walking the line gets tedious and the creative juices kick in when freed up. :-) That looks great Steve.

    QUESTION ?...I've been trying to determine what the B-26 (late B and C) control surfaces were covered with. After a couple days of researching my sources and the web I've found only one source that states the rudder was fabric covered and elevators were metal skinned. Nothing on the ailerons.

    I have photos where, due to color differentiation and what appears to be surface stress, all control surfaces look as if to be shinned with fabric. Then, I also have found some photos that show what appears to be smooth, flat, evenly reflective control surfaces that look like all are metal skinned.

    Does anyone have any source of documented construction materials for the control surfaces of the B-26?

    Thanks for any help you could be.

    Great job so far, unfortunately I am currently in my spring/summer travelling mode, so I have almost no time to do any painting. I am however very much looking forward to produce the extremely weathered paintjobs, like the one above, that you so often see on B-26's.

    I do look forward to that as well Jankees.

    Oh, BTW, did you post a pic, or a link in your post. Not seeing it here.
    EDIT: Ok, never mind :-)

    Steve, I'll look thru my docs to see if I can find an answer to that.

    This would be a good time for John (Bomber_12th) to chime in.

    Thanks for all the replies folks. Still plenty to do before I have to make the decision on how to treat the control surfaces.

    Thanks Milton

    Thanks Butch. Will take a look at your stuff.

    Jankees--I agree with you on your photo example and that's probably the way I'll go barring any evidence to the contrary.

    Ted--those rudder pics are perfect examples of what I'm up against. And I found "S987's" work early on. Amazing work.

    Thanks again, ALL.

    I fired an email to Robert "S987" since he's done the Marauders.

    He's also here at MilitaryMesh.com "luxomodo08"

    http://www.military-meshes.com/forum...hread.php?7146

    He did the early version also. Very talented modeler and artist.



    EDIT: Wow that was fast, just got a response from Robert and he said go with fabric control surfaces. He does extensive research on his work so I believe him.
    EDIT2: Just to be clear ask about the rudder (fabric) and elevators/ailerons are metal correct? Awaiting response, but I think that's what I've read. (B26.com).
