How about some clues as to how you did the toning on the exhaust?

Many thanks!
Exhausts? I use a blend of Revel Aqua, Tamiya Minis, Valejo and Citadel game inks. They are all water based acrylic, very important if you're using inks as it absorbs into the paint a bit. I based the exhausts with Aluminium then painted with Titanium Silver and then drybrushed gold onto the bends and the silencers. Next watered down Brown ink then followed by neat Brown ink into the joins. A light drybrush of Titanium Silver tends to get rid of any tide marks and blends all the colours together nicely. I then drybrushed Tamiya Clear Blue onto selected areas and then used a little red ink next to it which made it purple in places. A final light drybrushing with Silver and Titanium Silver to top it all off. I just add a bit more inks or drybrushing until I think it looks about right.

Another clean build showing your mastery of skills and attention to details. Great colour blue.

If you're not making mistakes you're not trying new things.

Strive for excellence, and perfection will find it's way into your projects.
