Great work JT, and I agree with Rik, the subdued weathering is spot on.  I'll be following along on this one. Cheers

thanks,

on the exhaust i paint it gloss black first.  then I airbrush some gold on the bends. then i spray the whole thing with alclad chrome.  then go over some areas with clear blue and clear red.  lightly with the red so i get a few pinkish tones.

Excellent thanks. Keen to give this a try.

Unfortunately I just found out my UK supplier of Alclad will not post liquids overseas anymore.....

Awesome washing and weathering on the engine. This thing looks so realistic - great work.

I like the "blue" gasket effect (?) on the "head cover" - sorry I am used to car parts not bikes so I'm guessing on part names
