Thank you all very very much for your kind comments.
I am very happy that you like this work.
 

The following pictures show the detail work on the observer MG.
This work is a mix of the beautiful parts of the kit, the master model company and a little scratch work.
The scope consists of the kit parts, brass tube and plastic waste.
I used a simple piece of a clear plastic rod and a drop of Tamiya "clear yellow" to represent the eyepiece.

Many many thanks to all of you for the applause. :)

Here are some pictures of my attempt to represent the aluminum skin.
I use always Mr. Metal Color (polish color) for that.
First, a thin layer Mr. Metal Primer is applied as a primer.
Thereafter, the aluminum shade is painted.

Allow to dry this color.

NOT polish.
Now applied irregular spots Mr. Metal Color "Iron" with an old short-haired brush .
To vary the effect, you can be painted smaller spots with "stainless".
Leave to dry the paint.

After being polished with the short-haired brush.

The brush is moved in rotation. Please do not press to hard with the brush, otherwise too much paint is polished away.

The different effect in different lighting conditions is not to be overlooked.

Attention, Important!

After polishing must be sealed with high-gloss clear coat, NEVER with matt varnish.

Thank you, Francesco

- but with only one selling book, I can not eat my fill. :D
 

Thank you, Martin.

I always use usually a mixture of about 50% Mr. Metal primer and 50% Mr Color Thinner.

Several thin layers of paint after another.

Tamiya clear works also good, but the primer can be paint thinner.

Thank you, Jeroen.

Please try it, it's a very easy and simple method. ;)
