After shading that small part I decided the whole engine could use some shading!

Image

Image
For replicating the 'metal' effect on the parts I used my trusty tootbrush again for some drybrushing

Image

Image
And soms dust

Image

Image
F#ck it, let's put it everywhere haha!

Pigments are another nice way to weather, really easy. Put them on with white spirit, let it dry, brush a little, done!

I think this is the ultimate 'dusty' look, best method I found so far.

Hmmmm... Rather empty!

Missing this! So I photgraphed the book, and rescaled the labels in Photoshop. On the right the printed version, lol.

On double-sided tape

Sides blackened

Better!

Remember my request for more (color) pictures of Maybach engines? And that I could hardly find any? Well... Forumuser AlastairCooke pointed out to me the answers were right under my nose all that time! I already own this incredible book!

Image

Image

Actually there are MANY pages like this!

Image

So this will be great help if I ever have to paint a third engine... (and I will, for an Armortek 1:6 Jagdtiger!)

Now... David Parkers excellent Köti build in 1:16 showed these stickers on the air filters:
Image
NO idea what the text says (something about German regulations I guess) and no better (real) pictures to be found, let alone decals in 1:6...

I would still like to know what's on the stickers but in the meantime I designed my own.
Image

4 prints for 2 engines
Image
Also on 1:6 you are not able to read what it says! So you are the only guys who know now haha!

Image
Attached using double-sided tape

Image
Some varnish to seal it

Image
End-result. Papers turn white on the edges.
