    Instead of a metal colour, I would start with a coat of dark brown over primer, seal that with a coat of clear varnish and then repeat the hairspray technique.

      Agreed! I don't have dark brown but I made the base colour darker and I went easy on the metallic this time. It will become more brown later when I add oilpaint washes. Also, the amount of clear metal was too much last try.

      I resanded the muzzle again which gave me some good insights. I liked the wear in some places while sanding. This is all a learning experience.

      As it stand now it is back to the basecoat. I'm waiting for some new paints to arrive.

      Thanks for looking,

      Mats

            Hello,

            wonderful work! IMO you should try to get a darker shade of Dunkelgelb.

              First time i've seen this project and i have to say it is very impressive indeed ,you really have done yourself proud here and i'd certainly think you'll get some orders to build more should you wiush too.
              I would say if you do make more leave the painting to the buyer,you'd spend more time trying to get that "look" of perfection than the actual build time, it can be very frustrating painting a small model tank let alone a full size muzzle brake from a Tiger

                That is good advise Bob! It would make it quite a bit cheaper as well. I'm seriously interested in making more. Some people contacted me about it so I probably will. I might offer them in 3 stages. 1. all the parts. 2. sanded and basecoated, 3. fully finished.

                But first I would like to finish this piece before going in on this idea,

                albertcher I think you are correct about the yellow! I was hoping it would get quite a bit darker after some washes and filters. I think I need to test that,

                Thanks for all the feedback guys! Really appreciate it,

                Mats

                      Thank you, RAL 8020 seems to be the way to go!

                      I would love to model other muzzle brakes as well as tracks etc. Thing is that dimensions are very hard to come by. When covid ends I'm planning on going to visit some museums with a tape measure and caliper .

                      Thanks,

                      Mats
