Have you shared your techniques on those very nice metal surfaces before?

If so, I either missed out, or forgot. Could you please remind us?

Thanks.

Frank I might even find time to work on this through the summer!!

Mike, Greg, Bruce, Rich, Roland I can't thank you guys enough for following along. An giving me all those wonderful compliments!

Carl to answer your question. I use blacken-it on them.
After they dry I buff them with a dremel felt wheel. If there to small I just have a pad I cut in half an do them by hand.
Next I paint them with a diluted Master Model acrylic paint thinned down.
Then I just buff them down and keep repainting them until I get the color I want.

Once again you guys are just the greatest!!

Those wood parts look like a lot of "gozintas".

Frank is that like

"Check out the gozintas on that chick."
"Holy sh*t, i just got kicked in the gozintas."
"That woman just drove into a house! I don't think her gozintas are all there."

Rick as always thanks for stopping by!!

Thanks for the steps Jerry.

However you didn't mention the "color' of this stuff:
diluted Master Model acrylic paint thinned down

Thanks again!

Carl I use the Medium Green FS34102. An I make it really thin almost like a wash. That way you can just adding until you get the depth you want.

I've tried gray but never can get the same results.

Small update of the Ore Feeders

Just so you know these are from Wild West Models.

One is of the stand the other with the hopper. Now all the mechanical pieces need to be put on.

Nice upcoming work for you Jerry. Showing all the steps, you make modeling look easy peasy. I could take a nap and wake up and you've got this all put together for me !!
Can't wait to see it all together.

Jerry, it looks like at least one of these ore feeders is ready to feed.
Nice work!
