That’s it for today. The primary washes have been blended in by a heavy drybrushing with Vallejo Iraqui Sand. Grease nipples have been painted in red and the outer breech plate has been painted with Vallejo Exhaust Manifold. I use this as it gives a variation in colour and depth rather than the flat effect from a plain steel paint. Next stage will be pin washes to lift individual details, rain streaks, oil, streaks and general wear and tear.
