    Yes tiny I agree. Those can be done later on the actual piece.

    Lovely Ray but the wood is still too homogenous in colour in my opinion. i would mask off the individual strips and filter them with other hues to get different shades for the wood. and of course, you need the ingroppi. otherwise it is really looking good.

    RayC

    German boots had nails [hobnails they are called?] on the underside, and these scratch, so try to imitate by light colour scrtaches in the wood, revealing the natural colour undernight the top layer patina, this can easily be done as the chipping and line effects we use for AFV weathering ... hope it helps as well to add more realistic weathering mate!

    G'day

    Ray it looks like the real thing, espcially the copper tubeing ...but I thing that the pistons need some drybrushing to bring out more the beautifull detail...just my 2 c..

    Good idea. Will think about the color and see, because I dont want it to become shiny.

    Looks spot on Ray C but I tend to agree with Marco re emphasising a bit more the pistons' and fins' detail.......

    To achieve this you don't have to neccesarily make it too shiny Shocked even though a bit more is better then a bit less as in most cases Rolling Eyes

    Agree with that. You need to emphasise the detail. But it looks really nice. you did a good job.

    Thanks mates. It doesn't show in the photo, but the cylinders are washed with Raw Umber, giving them a reddish tinge. What colours do you suggest for highlighting? A muted hue of silver printer's ink? scratch Or acrylic oily steel maybe.

    Just silver or aluminium will do. But do go overboard since it will dull down as time passes. So it will be better if you exagerate a bit.

    Ray C, you can always tone down with the same washes you used for the cylinders' fins if you go too much overboard Sad

    I prefer to go a bit overboard as then you can just "correct" if you can see it (the overdone contrast that is Twisted Evil ) but if you leave it that notch shorter, your eye would settle for it believe me and you won't notice it Sad
    I commited this fatal mistake (even recently) on SEVERAL pieces which I REGRET till eternity Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

    I will dare this evening and correct as necessary. Will bring it with me to the club tomorrow for feedback. Thanks.

    Hi mates

    Couldn't come to the club Wednesday as my car's clutch cable broke on my way Sad So here is a photo of the now highlighted engine.

    Excellent my friend!

    My only suggestion as I am judging from the photos is to add some little pinwashes to rivet and recess areas, to pull out detail more, and some oil filters [maybe burnt umber] in certain pistons [or what they are as I am ignorant in macine parts designations] not to keep them so monochromatic. If you have Tamiya X19 Smoke would give you some help to create stains and filters as well?

    What did you use Gunze's Mr Metalics series?

    Looking much better Twisted Evil infact it looks spot on cheers but would heed Ivan's suggestions if it is applicable, since we're just seeing digital images Evil or Very Mad

    It doesn't show in the photograph, but the cylinders have been washed with burnt umber and therefore have a reddish tinge. I haven't used the Tamiya smoke because I was afraid of producing a bluish filter. But will give it a try.

    No I didn't use Gunze Sangyo's metalizers but was very much tempted. Instead I used oils and printer's ink only as suggested by Joseph and Alex at the club. This is the first time I'm dealing with an engine as they were unavailable in the Crusades period Wink

    Depends Ray, is the engine meant to be used or new? If it were used, then the previous suggestions would enhance its looks but if it new,then there is no need.

    It was captured from a downed aircraft, so some oil stains would enhance it I think.

    Yes Ray, in that case it would be good to weather it a bit. Also note what the shaft for the prop looked like. You might need to put in some detail like a thread or any other fitting to which the prop was fixed. Also check if that shaft was hollow or not. I think you need some photos. Once alex told me to mix some oil paint with some linseed oil and apply it to the engine. I always do that and the resultant sheen is very realistic and looks like that thin film of oil which covers most engines. Just an idea which i normally use.
