Now that Nick has thrown down the gauntlet, its time for him to show all of us how it is done.  I personally want to see 1/32 scale working spark-plugs from him.

 Yes , well , er, I知 a bit busy at the moment getting ready for a trip Down Under but I値l get straight onto it when I get back . Promise .

Down Under what???

Thanks very much! Nick, have a good trip!

Barney, here is the pencil process:
I smear wet Prismacolor pencils on squares of 320 grit sandpaper and let them dry. I pick up this 菟aint with barely dampened cosmetic sponges and dab them on the base color. The first ap is a fade coat that is then sealed with Dullcoat. Then an ap of mixed grey mottling and seal again. The pencil coats are pretty transparent and work well over the textured surfaces (done with JB Weld). I also use my mini sandblaster with baking soda on LOW pressure to dull the often not-so dull Dullcote seal coats.

Continuing the oil and grease, using oil paints, fine dirt and pigments. 

I mix the dirt with the brown and black oil paints and apply with a brush in a thin coat. Then I use a cosmetic sponge to tamp in some pigments. This is a back and forth process until I am happy with the look.

Thanks guys!



Starting to work around the other side. I have been copying actual Fordson tractors, though I admit I am using some of the more extreme examples.
