    Here is the 2nd of the rigs that I have been working on. By posting these images, I have found some items that need adjusting, such as the filter canister. And if I could only learn how to get the wheels / tire lines solid. Oh well, I shall make one more attempt......................

    Try painting the entire wheel area silver then paint the tire black over it using appropriately thinned paints in careful short strokes. Also need a fairly consistent brush, I prefer the Winsor Newton series 7 000 size for any real fine detail work. If you don't know how to use finger anchor techniques, it's vital to learn as well. Professional hand painted pin stripe painters rely on this to be consistent on painting lines and curves.

    While it takes practice most experienced miniature or model painters can get that level of detail, but if they balk at spending $20 on a tiny brush or mounting the project to have a fixed reference point, they live with the results of ineffective tools and techniques. Unfortunately even an unnaturally steady person can't win that battle.
