Hydraulic cylinder components/painting deatiling

Recommended Posts

Guys,

When it comes to actually detailing/and or painting the hydraulic sections for lets say for a dump truck body, front (telescopics) what would you suggest? I have a few ideas of my own. I am open to your imput..there are alot of great modelers that contribute to this forum..

Also any tricks of the trade for the hydraulics to free stand? Stock plastic componentsand or possibly modified Thank you to one and all.

I have used Bare Metal Foil to cover the sections. Make sure that the opening for the sections is wide enough to clear the next section so that the foil doesn't peel/scrape.
