Hydraulic Jack

June 6, 2021 · in Uncategorized · · 15 · 1.8K

Another weathering test subject. This time a simple hydraulic jack. What do you guys think?

What I used to weather:

Tamiya Black Panel Line solution
Tamiya Brown Panel Line solution
Mig Black and Light Rust pigments
Another odd brand Buff/earth pigment I got from a arts and craft hobby store.
An old Mig oil/grease solution.
Then topped it off with a dull spray coat from Winsor & Newton
