Getting closer to adding the engine...

The "firewall " was mottled with Tamiya's XF-10 Flat Brown and XF-22 German Grey to break up the orange and provide some shadowing behind the exhaust stubs.

[/IMG]
Out of the box engine as only the exhaust stubs and cooling fans will be visible. Started by painting everything with Floquil's Old Silver and then overcoating the exhaust pipes with Tamiya's XF-85 Rubber Black. The ends and joins were sprayed with a very thin 1:1 mix of XF-55 Deck Tan and XF-60 Dark yellow. They were then washed with thinned Vallejo 70826 German Cam Medium Brown. Cooling fins were painted in Games Workshop Mithril Silver (front), and Boltgun Metal (rear) just for fun.

The "slot" was painted Games Workshop Boltgun Metal and washed with Citadel Babab Black. The (?) pipes were painted with Vallejo 70822 German Cam Black Brown. The firewall mottling/shadowing is hard to see against the gloss orange - hoping it will pop out and form the basis for some exhaust staining once the flat clear goes on.

Thanks for looking. Happy egg-hunting. Cheers, Ralph.

Hello Mark: here's a grab from the Mushroom Models book. The upper "pipes" look to be engine bearers; can't quite spot the lower horizontal ones though. Hope this helps and that your 48th scale Raiden goes well. Cheers, Ralph.
