STEP BY STEP
According to the instructions, copper wires were
shaped, glued in place and then painted, along
with the remaining piping and wiring, silver.
After assembling the main parts, the actuating
rods of the engine cooling flaps were addressed.
Weathering of adjacent surfaces was accomplished using a weathering
sponge, lightly dabbing on a mixture of black and dark brown oil paint.
If you overdo this effect, it can be dampened using a dry or lightly
moistened brush with oil paint thinner.
The cooling flaps were attached to their
appropriate places according to the
instructions using instant (CA) glue.
The last step was to create abrasions and scratches with a thin brush
and silver paint.
