Hello again friends!

Here are more updates!

Painting:

Starting with the tracks: here I apply a base color gun-metal of Tamiya X-10 in order that they don't lose the appearance of the steel.





Regards!

Thanks friend!

More updates!

Before starting the weathering of the tracks, I applied a coat of gloss varnish. For the process I will use: solvent spirit - pigments - black, shadow toast and indian-red.





Step 1.- Mixing black and shadow toast pigments it gives a dark earth tone. Step 2.- A little touching of spirit and after of drying I applied indian-red pigments and finally remove the excess.









Applying a dry brush of Metalcote of Monogram-Humbrol gives an excellent metallic tone (type graphite).





Mixing pigments: ochre yellow + shadow toast and little of white, they give a French earth tone. I remove the excess and finally applied Metalcote. Ready!!







Regards!
Rodolfo
