the tempering at the head and maybe a bit of flaming at the end?
What do you think modellers?

If you own an airbrush, then try the Alclad 2 'hot metal' colours. These are translucent and can be applied over any sort of chrome finish, but they are only good for spraying.

I'll have a butchers, and thank you.
But it's the colour scheme I want.

dark blue fading to medium blue at the manifold.
Never had a bike that had flames out the exhaust, only from the carbs, :shock:

I usually give the pipes a coat of Humbrol MetaCote (best applied with an airbrush but can be applied by brush). Leave to dry for at least an hour, especially if brush painted) and then buff up with a cotton bud or polishing mop in a mini drill.
I then add burning effect using Tamiya Clear Yellow, Clear Orange and Clear Blue.

This one used 'Polished Steel' MetalCote with Blue and Orange to give the welding effect.

For this one I used 'Polished Aluminium' Metalcote with I think a very thin wash of Clear Orange.

Hope that is some help.
