Inside of F-16 exhaust nozzle

Recommended Posts

I have a question.  I have a 1/48 scale F-16 that I plan on someday to build.  I noticed that F-16s and other jets have a whitish color on the inside of the nozzle.  How should I paint the inside of the nozzle to  reproduce this color?  Dry brush with white paint?

I've painted the liner white or light gray, then dusted with dark gray and black pastel, depending how "used" I want it to appear.

That whitish area is actually a ceramic coating, which then gets stained black and brown. Ralph's method should work perfectly!
