Tips on Painting & Weathering a Maybach Engine


If anyone has a good set of tips on painting the Panther’s Maybach engine, i’d be most grateful. It seems that specific painting tutorials online are hard to find. Most books appear to show the finished article. Maybe there was a build log already on Armorama?

I have a picture which is pretty good. But i’m more interested in knowing how the colour effect of the exhaust manifolds would be achieved for example. Base colour looks like field grey, but that’s not right I wouldn’t think.

Thanks in anticipation.

I know this is not what you are looking for, but in case you can not find anything better, Ammo has one of their Weathering Magazines for engines grease and oil:

They usually have step-by-step articles.
