1.

Depending on the desired intensity, mix acrylic paint, best from the manufacturers Tamiya or Revell, with more or less water and some drops of dish soap. The rinsing agent prevents the pearling off the paint mixture from the plastic.

Analogous to the walls the gate wings are also to be aged. Previously, the hinges can be accentuated with a black water-proof fineliner. For this you need a steady hand!

Also attachments, as in the case of item 80 102: suction, fans, are suitable for colored design. The parts look more realistic and high-quality. Above all, they get a personal touch.

Attention! Adhesive surfaces must not be painted. In these places the connection does not hold.

The consoles were treated monochrome with black color. However, the fans have a particularly delicate effect when the lamellas are deposited in a metallic color.

The building is finished. The effort was worth it. Even the traces of the rain water under the windows are realistic. There are small details for the finishing touches.
