I'll start with the engine, here is the series of pics that follow the engine construction and initial painting. Note at one point I had scratched some wiring but ended up crushing the part on the floor, so I discarded it...I'll show the wiring work here for reference.

On to painting, at first I shot some of the new Vajello duraluminum paint, way too shiny. I striped this and went with a black base and then dry brushed a cast aluminum look.

Hey Gus, I used Vajello Model Air Aluminum and went to town with a rounded brush.

I can't say for certain, but I think the MA paint has a an additive to make it spray better, This additive helps it not clump up like a typical water based dry brush would normally do.

I was one step away from using MM Aluminum to preform the dry brush, but then that would have effected the oil based washes I am using.

Thanks for looking in.
