You spin me right round baby......

I managed to get enough time to paint the turntable this week.

The finished product.

The steps to painting. Undercoat grey first for better paint adhesion and a good base colour.

Next a blue grey mixture

Then some areas are lightly covered with grey to depict faded paint.

Closer view.

Next a dusting of rust on the underframe.

Using a paint brush I painted the walkways with a brown grey mixture.

When gluing on the rails I used 3 sleepers close together to maintain the gauge rather than trying to measure it.
