I thought I would take some 'Artistic' shots of this for this one And for size comparison here is Lady Jane next to the Whippet.................. See what I did there? And for a like or like comparison..... This was my second go at the black and white effect. The first didn't work as I tried to create various shades of grey. This turned out a bit blue using Vallejo Black and White Acrylics. I then went on the hunt for 'true' black and whites. It turns out there isn't one!! I purchased Windsor & Newton titanium white, Ivory and Mars Blacks in both acrylic and oils. In the end I used Vallejo Black and AK White which is closer to a Titanium white than the Vallejo. The process is to paint it pure white then layer the black gradually to create the shading rather than mix. A black wash as per usual for contrasts then AK white then black built up pigments for the weathering in the same way as the base hues. The only other ingredient was a rub over with AK Polished Steel Pigment for highlights particularly on the tracks.

As usual I have gone OTT on the weathering grrrrrr. A
