Looking good Paul :clap:

I liked the yellow much more - reminded me of cutaway industrial models (in real metal though)... and as casp said, in hammerite green outside...
and don't you dare touching the plaque, it's just perfect in looking a bit oil stained...

I did another dry fit on more of the larger parts the other day and it didn't go to well.

Not to be put off, I'll just need to sand some of them down, so am in think mode now ! :think: :)

Well, apart from the cat hairs (as Gizzie Cat has been inspecting yet again!) I still need to buy those extra tins of paint so I can line out more correctly:

Are those cat hairs in the paint, or just resting on top. Very annoying if the former, but it's looking good Paul.
Cheers

Ok, I know this lot is a bit ropey, and some poetic licence used as well - But what the heck !

Apart from some of the painting, I've also tried a dry brush effect on some of the nuts and screw heads as a bit of contrast:

A couple more parts glued together (the horrible bit at the front on this pic will be sanded down and hidden by another part):

Many thanks again Casp :D :D

A lot of dry fits still with the major parts (I think I've sorted them out now though they will need painting again when all sorted out):

Coming on nicely Paul. The plate with the coil and points looks great, and the dry brushing brings out the nuts nicely.

If you wanted to be a bit more adventurous, you could try adding a black wash around the base of the coil and points. That might make them look more like separate parts rather than all moulded in one piece. I think you can afford to be quite subtle with the effect.
Cheers

Hi Mark,
Many thanks for the advice :D I'm just having a bit of a play around with this at the moment - mainly with the paints, just to see what I can do - so all very experimental and very good fun to do !!! :D :D

Another pic from yesterday.
Originally I thought about taking out the Airfix logo with a dremel, but instead have highlighted it!!! :shock: :) :

Also I've detailed the nuts in, originally with Humbrol 11 silver, and then Humbrol 16 gold.

I've had to get the dremel out today to drill this spindle.

There was supposed to be a hole in it to make the rest fit, though there wasn't.

Whilst I've gone a bit OTT with the dremel, a subsequent dry fit has been fine:

After the dremel job, the other part now sits snuggly (and a bit more detailing done):
