I began with clear coating the black primer to apply the polished aluminium. Then I started with blue and red on the curves of the exhausts, adding some brass and repeat the procedure till I was satisfied.
That sounds like a lot of work, but worth it! The only other way it could look that good is if you made a working 1/12 scale engine and actually ran it to get heat stained exhausts! Thanks for the great WIP.
