Iron Hands Update

Hello fine people, well, I had a major jolt of inspiration this afternoon and went on a bit of a painting bender.  Did some work on the Titan (but I’m keeping that a secret) and some work on the Iron Hands Rhinos and Landraider.  Hope you enjoy the pics!

I made a very light wash of a few different colours (I cant remember atm) and used Tamiya X20A thiner to thin it down so it went over very lightly.  I used a heat gun to dry it quickly, and then cut in around panel lines and rivets with an undiluted version of the wash.  Finally,  I used the airbrush to create the dusty look towards the rear of the hull.  I used a large flat bush to get the streak lines in the wash too, before applying the heat gun.  The heat gun just caused the thinner (alcohol based) to dry very quickly and retain the streak lines.

Thanks for looking… been a pretty awesome day!

Comments always welcome
