This was one of the first models I undercoated with my new compressor, the effort required to finish it off was not too much, just some silver, black and brass. The weapon in the nose section is removable so I can run it in Steam Wars as just a transport or a tank!
After many year of thinking about and wondering if the investment would be worth it, I have finally purchased a compressor to see what I can do with it. I sprayed a few bit of paper and then decided to have a go at undercoating something I was not going to be worried about if it all went horribly wrong. So to start with I picked on a fair sized lump of plastic with the intention of just undercoating it in Vallejo Air Gun Metal. I selected my Mantic Tunneller as it does not need to have a clean finish. Once I got started, I realised that spraying Gun Metal onto a grey model means it is quite difficult to see where the paint is actually going… I then did a few bits black, which it means it is much easier to see where the paint is going… First results were okay, I will have to get more practice in. I picked out the detail by hand and finished off with a bit of drybrushing.
This is yet another model that I have bought and painted for no other reason than I like it. I am not sure what I will use it for, it may just end up on a shelf. But it could get used in my Mechanica force, or maybe as a model in an Empire Of The Dead or In Her Majesty’s Name scenario.
