    I just noticed from the photos that the fragmented overspray is not good!!! I'll rest a bit and see how to tackle it with a paint brush! UFFA!!!

    More work on the bike.

    Camo proved to be difficult to airbrush! Razz Tal biki!

    Took a photo and was still not happy with the rather contrasty tone of the colours so.............


    .... so I took out the airbrush and gave a light overspray over the entire model to tie the colour together.

    lol! .... good one

    The overspray will tone done with weathering and pigments and made to look like dust. At least that's what I'm hoping! But from experience, I already did this and it should work.

    Brilliant work on a lovely looking model Noel, the chipping looks really great. Looking forward to seeing it all done up.

    Chips...

    Post  Dottore on Sun Oct 10, 2010 8:25 pm

    Looking good...but rather homogenous in size an shape...might I suggest adding other tiny chips around the main ones...or use a piece of sponge...

    Or u can leave it as is if youre happy with the way it looks after all!

    Happy! But sponging is a good idea Very Happy Well I must admit that it's not as easy as applying chips on a tank. And they might look all of a large size! However, they will be toned downed considerably with washes and dusting and not remain so obvious.

    Looking good Noel, these bikes are little gems and a small vignette is the right way to show them out as they are so intricate in detail ... may I suggest to add some different coloured fresh mud [darker then the rest], and just a little to the lower parts] to add interest/contrast to the overall scheme, and the wheels look pretty neat in contrast to all the splattering they should have created ...
    Keep them coming this looks to be a promising small vignette ...

    Thanks Ray & Ivan Very Happy

    You're right clioguy! Sorry about that. I love you But you do see that it was possible to airbrush the small bike without having many sub assemblies.

    I hope you didn't mind the joke about the mega shrinking machine! Very Happy

    It's not easy to take photos while painting.

    However, I had the bike and sidecar as two separate elements. I drilled a hole in the bottom and placed a toothpick so I can handle and turn the model while spraying.

    It was then just a matter of spraying from every possible angle to get into the nooks and crannys!

    Regards
    Noel

    ok, so I imagine low air pressure, to be able to reach into the tire wall which was hidden behind the wheel arch?

    Oh! Yes! I was all the time adjusting the pressure! High pressure could easily blow the bike off the toothpick. The most important....... and I did not have this Evil or Very Mad .... is to have a correctly thinned paint to flow nice and steady at pin-line thickness. Mine was clogging all the time!

    Wow man, excellent work, they are really well posed. I like the way you paint your figures and you are really quick too.

    Obviously the pic enlargement never does any justice to the figures' actual look to the naked eye or at least to a speckled eye Twisted Evil

    Good brush work nonetheless cheers
