Hello,today i want to present you fast article about tracks base paint. It can be also useable for any steel surface. I used Tamiya acrylics for base coat and Tamiya ad Humbrol enamels for dirty and rust effects.
First coat by mixture of Tamiya paints,note blue color for better look of natural steel.
A light overspray with brown to add base for rust effects
and black to make shadows for deep...
...and touch of enamels to finish look of rusty and dirty tracks,
i made a wash with humbrol rust for base and after that
alternate sputtered flat earth and rust from brush using pressed air from an airbrush.
Finished track link ready for next weatherig by pigments or similar effects...
All work on both track links took just about one hour.Its fast with good result, exactly how i like it.
Thanks for reading. Jirka
