After glued on the base a balsa wood sheet of 5 mm thickness I applied on it a layer of putty for shims available in the briko stores.Spend at least 24 hours when the putty is dry I sanded the entire surface with medium-grit sandpaper and then subsequently with a finer grain.After cleaning with a brush to remove the dust with a metal tip I engraved the surface reproducing the pavement separating lines and cracks that add realism and a more experienced in the whole.I then performed a light wash with raw umber oil and dry color I laid on the surface various shades of gray with the dry brush technique.Once you finished this step I realized oil stains with the specific product from the AK Interactive and also various dirtying earth tones with enamel colors.When I will place the vehicle and its various components on the base I will fulfill any other small aging interventions.
