What you need to color the wing case.


A fine point tweezers.

A correction pen, when coating the backside of the wing case with the white correction pen, it's easy to make light area and spots on the wing case. 

 

Some waterproof marker in color to match the hatch, to make light area and spots use the same color as the backgraund or a colorless blender Prismacolor PM121.

Thin Sofy Body to cover the wing case.


Make a mix of thick Soft Boby and water 1:10 in a small container with a big lid, like a 35mm film container, just make a small amount. let's say 5 mm in the bottom of the film container.
