Muddy Howard spreader


Recommended Posts

Hi mate

This version is actually several different attempts in one (which is why it looks a bit overdone) However the mix I have settled with is a base or 3 types of Tamiya brown, mixed then with compost, chopped up real straw and then plenty of model glue to make it all bind together, lastly I lightly brush it over with a water based greeny brown colour to give it a hint of 'slurry' effect.

I now need to get another old Howard spreader and give it the full beans, this time I think I will also replace the plastic chains with real chain.
