I've been watching this build. You have done an excellent job. I love the final back drop photos, hard to tell they aren't the real thing.

Which brings me to a question. Back on page 7, thread 11, you have a head on photo of the engine in the Snake. I know you are working with the Alclad paints but did you do a wash on the engine, or does the paint come out naturally like that?

Looking at the front of the Blower it just has such realistic depth to it...Fantastic 


Thanks  Steve
