I should have installed the seat after the fuselage was together, as it would have been easier to paint the bulkhead and headrest.
A mix of three parts Tamiya XF-18 Medium Blue and one part XF-2 White was sprayed on for the upper blue-gray color, allowing some of the pre-shading to show through. Some white was then added to the mix to lighten the color and it was thinned out even more. This was randomly misted onto the upper color to create a weathered effect. The fabric control surfaces were further weathered by a bit more white and some gray added to the previous mix. There is no science as to how much or what color to add for weathering effects, just whatever looks good to you.
