Often I have to redo or modify them with every newly finished part. That's very time consuming. To avoid boredom I am working on several different subjects simultaneous. On one day its the grundwork, then on the gears or the brass work. But very soon the fun begins again: Coloring and weathering !!!!

Looks fantastic.
I would love a tutorial on how you painted the gears and other metal parts!
