Porsche continued

I've added som silver metallic (humbrol enamel no.11) onto the 959 with a technique that's called drybrushing I believe? Again, I have really no idea how it's supposed to be done but I think it looks ok.

There will of course be some more paint applied later but I have to do some studying first. I want the cars to look really weathered and ratty.

Porsche faction

I was skimming through my stash of toy cars and found that I had a large quantity of Porsches, maybe 10 or 15. Might as well make a thing out of it.

This is the first creation, a Porsche 959 from the mid-eighties. It has a hood mounted short barreled gatling gun and old school oil dispenser.

I have no idea

So I've applied some metallic paint onto the black. I have no idea on how it should be applied. Drybrushing you say? Does it look alright?

Painting miniatures

As I said before I'm quite a rookie when it comes to painting miniatures. I found this site that really helps, called http://www.how-to-paint-miniatures.com

Can't go wrong with that, eh? But actually, when you look around the internet, you'll come across thousands of people with thousands of different painting techniques, and some tips and tricks that contradict another's. There's no easy way around this, it's trial and error, and maybe one day you'll be the one that give tips and inspire rookies.

Dark Future on Ebay

Have you seen this guy who sells Dark Future cars and bikes for £12 a piece? It says they are painted. Yeah, but just the one colour.

I'm no Michelangelo myself but come on. I would maybe consider buying if they were 12p each.
