Added the idler gear. Grease and oil made with oil paints mixed with fine powdered dirt. When dry, a touch of thinned gloss was applied to bring it to life.

Incredible!
Extremely realistic. It does not look like a painted scale model.

Now that is what you call the real thing. Beautiful work.

What did you sift the dirt through?

Thanks Guys!  Jerry, I used some 400 mesh fine stainless filter screen I bought at Mcmaster Carr. I also use it for window screens.

Chuck, that is just perfect. Did you have to smoothen the gear's teeth surface to achieve that extremely convincing look of greased sheer metal?
Thank you for posting that. I once knew a guy who made printed magazines. This for sure would have been a more than worthy topic to publish.

Thanks very much!

Volker, the teeth were sanded smooth, and then I used a pencil to apply the metal shine. This was covered with a light coat of Polly Scale high gloss. When the teeth catch the sun, they are quite shiny. I applied the oil paint and dirt mix to the valleys and tops of the teeth, and then the gloss when it dried. The large gear on the rear drum should be neat when done, though I am not excited about the 72 teeth on it!
