For those of you that are interested, here's a break down of colours used for the weathering on the Lift Hawk. Please take note that the weathering has to be done in this order.

1- Paint some of the panels Castellan Green. (This needs to be done before the blanket wash of Nuln Oil)
2- Wash the model Nuln Oil/medium as described earlier in the thread.
3- Highlight the green panels Elysian Green.
4- Sponge Valljo Smoke on the model and some on the green bits.
5- Highlight chips on the grey bits with Uniform Grey from Army Painter.
6- Highlight chips on the green bits Elysian Green.
7- Wash bit's of the green panels with Skrag Brown, mainly around chipped bits and where the panels meet the grey areas.
8- Wash chips on the grey with Skrag brown, be a bit more selective with this part.
9- Highlight/weather green panels with Model Air Chrome.
10- Paint the rest of the panels in Doombull Brown
11- Stipple brown panels with Mecariaus Solar Orange(or equivalent, old gw foundation paint) Take care to get non on the grey
12- Highlight/weather rusted panels with Chrome too.

This all looks like a lot but it takes next to no time to do since it occupies a small fraction of the model.

During this stage it's handy to have the Reconquest book handy to look at close up's of the Resistance models to see the various stages on the models. If you have any more probing questions regarding this step just ask, I'm sure myself or Gary will chip in to offer advice, hopefully Gary will because he is better with words ;)

More to come soon.

Thanks for the detailed recipe, Mike!

Question: Is that a second wash with Nuln Oil, or is it just that you painted some of the panels green in an earlier step, back before you (first) washed the entire model with Nuln Oil?

Awesome, thanks. That's what I thought, but I wanted to be sure...

Some more progress on the Resistance Lift Hawk, in fact it's nearly done now. I just have to do the canopy and some general tiding up and I can get some proper pictures of it. Painting this makes me appreciate the studio painters work, you know who you are

Image

And for those that are interested, a list of colors!

Blue Lights:- Enchanted Blue(Calador Sky I used.) highlighted with Deep Sky Blue painted like a semi-circle around the bottom of the light. Then a white dot in the top right corner, the coated in Gloss Varnish. I fully recommend Valllejo's Polyurethane Gloss Varnish for this but any old gloss will do.

Red Lights:- Mepheston Red highlighted with Solar Orange(old gw foundation paint) with a white dot again and gloss varnish.

Missiles:- Mepheston red, that's it! I need to clarify this with the painter.

Engine glow:- Game Color Wolf Grey then t**ted with Gulliman Blue. Again, I need to clarify with the painter but I think that's all.
