Machinas: WIP update

The cars are coming along finely. Priming is finished and dried, and painting has begun.

I've started by painting the base colors on all the cars (except two- time constraints) and building up successive lighter layers. I paint with the brush going from the front of the car to the back to emphasize light coming from the front. You can see the effect best on the orange car in the photo.

I'll try to slow down, now, and start doing the accessories of individual cars. I plan on painting windshields, hubcaps, lights and weapons next. Trying to get the windshields to where I like them will take long enough.

After all the accessories have been painted, then I'll weather the cars -- some rust, chipped paint and dust. Then varnish, then done.


  1. Wow! You really know how to knock these projects out in a hurry!

  2. impressive!
    just one day and you've done all that!
    for the moment, the orange is my best one: iI like the car itself, and the "custom-work" is in a good start....
