Note their different camouflage patterns directly over the NMF surfaces. The falcon in the background has one overall top color while the one in the foreground has a "madara" (mottle) pattern. A rather young and touchy modeler (insisting on calling the plane "Busa"; similar to talking about "Lcons") recently asked about the best way to recreate this mottle effect on his 1/48 model. I would really like to hear your ideas and suggestions. Airbrush or brush? Free-hand or something else?
