I have a question regarding the original d78 body if anyone could help ? - they are unpainted but appear to have a wash on the alloy which makes them appear white- originally they were silver. Im currently undertaking a model project and wish to emulate this 'wash' appearance/aesthetic . if anyone could help me /direct me as to what this process was i would be most grateful.
When acid washing of the aluminium finish was still a thing, some units became very dirty (compared to others) and sometimes a freshly cleaned unit was paired with a dirty one and the contrast was marked - giving a grey/white combination.
