  • MDC Hustler

    Hello,

    Nothing interesting to do this weekend, so I decided to do a small project, a small mining locomotive from MDC

    It is no a wonder, but it has helped me to put into practice a technique of painting and weathering which took him days circling, at last, this is the result.

















    Hope you like it.

          Nice weathering on the critter, and I like your grill screen job! Are you going with the link & pin or Kadee couplers?

          Here is a kit bash with engine added if you are interested; http://home.comcast.net/~brokenbusha...ilhustler.html

              The painting process is a little slow , but more or less as follows .....

              All layers applied with airbrush.


              - Clean the surface to be painted .

              - Priming all model. Vallejo Primer light grey

              - A layer of white -

              - 2 layers of metallic color - Vallejo Oily Steel 70.865

              - A layer of brown - Vallejo Chocolat Brown FS 30099

              - 2 layers of metallic color - Vallejo Oily Steel 70.865

              let dry completely between coats.

              - With a brush dipped in water, apply a few drops in those parts who would like stripped

              - On the water droplets put some grains of salt. Let the salt dry.

              - 2 layers of white color - Vallejo Premium Acrylic Polyurethane color 62.001

              With a brush, remove all the salt from the model, and so, we can see how has been the color contrast. White whith steel blurs.

              With a very soft sandpaper, over 300, refine all the model.

              Apply more pressure to the areas that we want to see the live metal.

              We will see that the transition zones between white and steel, a brown color appears as a shadow, the effect is correct.

              Then we can apply some gray and black glaze alternately.


              I think that's all.

              I hope you find it useful
