How do you make the most of today’s stunning ready-to-run models? MIKE WILD offers 20 ways to enhance your models with readily available products and simple steps.
1. Weather it!
Weathering models is very much a case of each to their own. However, for us a suitably weathered model finished with care and attention to detail can really enhance the appearance of a ready-to-run product by bringing out its detail and making it unique. To achieve the effects shown here requires an airbrush as well as hand finishing techniques, all of which have been covered in past issues of Hornby Magazine. Favourite colours include Burned Black (UA736), Frame Dirt (UA719), Dirty Grease Effect (UA262) from Lifecolor together with Wilder’s Grease Effect (GP11) powder.
