Sharpie marker to the rescue!

Exhaust collector ring for the Pegasus X used on the Vickers Wellesley, done with a bronze Sharpie marker. To my eyes it replicates the burnt metal appearance quite nicely.

It certainly does, one of the best solutions to that problem I've seen.  :thumbsup:

Certainly the easiest! It fits Bailey's First Law (humbly named after myself): Necessity may be the mother of invention, but laziness is usually the father.
