I started working on the engines. They have quite nice details, so I will try to show some of it in the finished model. First I cut out a panel of the engine cowling with a scribing tool and added some thin styrene strips.





Painting metal colors is still a tricky thing to do for me (brush painting) so I ordered something "new" from Uschi van der Rosten - a powder for metal effect. It's easy to apply with Q-tips. First a black base coat is applied, followed blij the powder. I'm happy with the result. I'm wondering how it will look on a bigger smooth surface...







Here's a little tutorial how it works:

Nice work there Fabian, and congrats on the GB win mate, well deserved. [smile]
That powder works similar to the dry brush method for the Mr Metal paints, once the carrier evaporates it's pretty much a powder anyway, but you get a lot more in the Albion range, what's their price like?

Looks like they are going to be very nicely detailed engines Fabian, and I'm very impressed with the finish you achieved with the metal powder it looks great !
Also what did you use to get the rust finish in the manifolds ? Is it just paint or pigments ?, it looks excellent

Pete

And congratulations again on your group build win mate, I'm still amazed you got a finish like that without an airbrush, your skill with a paintbrush is very impressive

Thank you very much Pete and Simon. What a nice surprise the GB special was :-). Can't wait to know what the new GB will be about. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's gone be fun again! And Pete, congrats again for your well deserved overall win. I'm sure a members vote would result in the same winner, lol

De powder is a little cheaper than the white one you get in the clubs here in Amsterdam... it's €30 for 3 different 25ml jars. And I'm guessing that they last for quite some models - have to get a nice test kit for a metal finish livery ;-)
The manifolds are painted with a rust color enamel and a application of different shades of pigments. Not sure how to mount the PE wires - guess superglue is the answer... :-/

Yeah I'm wondering when the new GB is going to be announced too, like, what's the hold up? lol
Anyway, superglue is the go for your PE, you can use PVA too but you'll want a quick bond with those fine, intricate pieces. So that rules that out.
I'm not sure if you have PE and plastic pieces that do the same thing there (meaning you've painted the pieces the PE replaces), but they're all painted now anyway so it doesn't matter if that's the case.
Looking good. [smile]

Patiently glueing the wires... will get there... I hope :-).
I have a question: trying new colors and got this nice set of Mr.Color aircraft interior set. The problem is I have no clue how to thin those colors... humbrol thinners for acrylics and the one for enamel both don't work/mix. And I can't read anything on the package because my Japanese is not that good :-/. Probably a stupid question but I want to make this work - the colors are really nice (but smell terrible!). Any idea?

Hi there, finally finished the engines. Put in quite some work in these. I'm glad a opened a panel, otherwise almost nothing would be seen :-)







Like the yellow ;-)
