    Clean, mastered from A to Z. You did a great job on this - difficult - classic (1994).

    Thanks so much everyone for you kind attention - I am glad you enjoyed my work.
    Jim Patrick,megroot,Hans:
    I'll try to explane in a few words how I been painting metal:
    At first I covered the details with metal enamel (at the same time it plays a role of a base),then I covered deepenings with black oil and shaded it with a dry brush,and the last stage - highlighting and super-highlighting with metal acrylics.Also,another important thing while painting different kind of materials - is watching photos.In this case,for,example,I used these and several others:

    May I ask just a few questions? I hope you don't mind as I am VERY interested in obtaining results similiar to your's.

    1- What brand and color of paints do you use in each of your steps?

    2- When you are applying your highlighting and super highlighting with acrylics, how are you applying the paint? Is it in a normal method with the paint diluted with water? Or is it more of a dry brush method?

    Thanks so much for taking the time to explain your methods.

    sure - It's ok.

    Oh,I am afraid that you don't have exectly this marks in USA (you have only to order through internet) - it's our ukrainian and russian paints.But don't mind about it - you can use some similar examples from Humbrol (metal enamel),Vallejo (acrylic metals) etc.
    The enamel I used calls "Silver" (this one: http://www.zvezda.org.ru/kraska-super/KPC06/ - but I think Humbrol is better) - It's a light metal color,something similar to aluminium.Then I covered this paint with black oil - I think any kind of black oil pain can be used up to your chose.Then acrylics- it's were: № 91 and № 92 http://www.hobby.dn.ua/index.php?cPath=190_218&osCsid=tpaue8ps3ejgm5ada3a0gn21s2
    called "Steel" (metal colour of middle darkness) and "Polished metal" (very light - like aluminium)

    I used both methods: for big areas - blendings of Steel + Polished metal + little bit black acrylic,for top of details - Steel + Polished metal (blendings),and for very tops - only Polished metal (blendings and dry brush a little)

    Not at all - good luck!
