The PC-10 paint is Gunze acryl olive drab, and some areas are lightly sprayed with Pollyscale PC-10 which has a lot of green (too green for my taste). The CDL is Misterkit British CDL.
The wing upper surfaces are shaded with the airbrush - a lighter coat for the ribs, and a darker coat in the valleys in between. Similar but opposite treatment for the wing under surfaces.
The grey metal panels on the fuselage are Gunze RLM03 (If I recall right), and Gunze Olive green.
For weathering, rust, and soiling effect, I mainly used a dry brushing powder that is popular with railroad modellers - it is not pastel ground. mine is made by Bragdon, and comes in various colours. I used it mainly to simulate the grime, and to highlight some of the details.
I also used some oils to simulate rust.
I will be putting up a few photos eventually.
