When I do my wheels I strip in the isoproplyn and then prime with Halfords grey, then airbrush ally base followed by the colour I want and then clear using halfords clear.

I then to put them on a bbq wood skewer to hold while painting as you need to get in all the nooks and crannies of the wheels.

QUOTE (Ember @ 9 Aug 2011, 11:07) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>No doubting that spraying is a quick and simple way of doing things. But, don't discount a brush. I don't have a great deal of experience with small detail spraying. So when it came to wanting to get a graduated colour I turned to the tool with which I was most familiar.


The Slot.it inserts on this repaint/re-personality are sprayed with silver and then brushed with Tamiya clear colours. It doesn't stand out greatly in the photo but the outer rim is a rich green which blends into a yellowy lime in the centre.

Like many things you'll get the best outcome when you are most comfortable. But don't dip unless you're using ink or dye!

Nice work there
