Im building HB's M911 and have primed most parts in Badger black, with MM sand to follow.

My question is; how to paint the dished area of the tandem axle rims?

Is this something to attempt with an airbrush or just brush coat?

The recessed shape of the rims seems to point to hand brushing, but id love to know if they can be airbrushed.

Thanks all

Just like road wheels on a tank, they can easily be painted with an airbrush. Go with low pressure and hit from a few different angles and you will cover them fine.
