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.


INFO Eduard

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.
