Moebius 1/32 Battlestar Galactica Viper Part 3: Painting, Striping, And… HAIRSPRAY!

There are many ways to add chipping to your model. I often use a sponge to dab on papint, and it makes a really nice, random pattern. Painted on chips can also be a great way to go, and allow the modeler to be very precise in where chips are placed, and how large they are.

Yet all of these are adding paint over paint, which isn’t really chipping at all. And while they look good enough, sometimes what is called for are actual chips. This can be done with proper modeling chipping fluid, or my personal favorite – hairspray.

Such is the case with getting the red stripes on this Battlestar Galactica Viper. Stripes and other decorative elements are one of the best places to to actually chip the paint. Because these areas are usually masked off, it’s easy enough to apply a layer of chipping fluid/hairspray, and then paint over it. Once chipped back – it looks the part because it’s actual chipping!
