First I painted the exhaust parts black. The afterburner ring was handpainted with chrome and gun metal. The inside of the can was dry brushed lightly with white.
The outside was painted with a mix of black and chrome, then I used a Molotov chrome pen to paint the rim.
The turkey feathers was painted in steel, and then masked of for the next colour.
After painting a mix of black and chrome on the inner feathers, I removed the masking.
Then I did a simple dry fit.
The inside of the feathers was dry brushed with an off white.
Quite happy with that. Now I only need to assemble it. I think I’ll give parts of it a black pin wash to enhance some details. I might also use sooth pigment from the Tamiya set.
