Hello my friends , snow falls from sky , that means no work today , so extra time for modelling !
Alot of parts are gathering on my bench , so let's put some toghether . I start with the side boxes , giving them a "woody" look . After this , I concentrate my attention to paint everything else . Here is the sidecar after painting and some wear and weathering , the boxes with color on , bike fenders , sidecar fender , fuel tank , frame , front fork and sidecar support frame .
The process up to this result was : primer , various metallic colors on every part (darkest for frame , fork and fuel tank and lighter for sidecar , fenders etc) , AK "worn effect" fluid , painting and finally scratching with a hard wet brush until the color start to leave .
Maybe I've gone a bit overboard with the weathering-scratches , but when I start I lose my temper a bit. Hopefully I'll find some way to hide at least a few extra points, we'll see.
Then some wash with oils , and a final touch with gloss varnish .
Now I have to put some decals on , more varnish and more weathering (with pastels , oils , enamels & acrylic paints with brush etc) .
Also there are many small parts to finish , this extra day is a good opportunity to work with them .
So , back to bench , see you soon again .
Thanks for looking , be free to comment .
