You have done one nicely detailed build, Phil. Of all things, I just love that boss! Something about those silver speckles that create a contrast between them and the RLM70 (that is, I presume the boss is 70). I sure hope mine turn out as nicely as yours.
Thanks very much to all of you for the very kind words.
Mark, yes the boss is RLM 70.
I was doing a bit of dry brushing on the prop blades and
I wanted to get a worn look to the spinner.
Some time back I cut down an artists brush to remove sanding dust from panel lines:
Its pretty stiff and works well for that.
I used this very much in the same way as dry brushing.
After removing most of the paint on a paper towel I "stabbed" it onto the boss in a few areas.
Using the ends of the bristles gave the effect I was looking for.
Much simpler than other methods I've used and I'll use it again.
Thanks for looking in.
