Tools used:
Tamiya Grey putty
Humbrol Universal thinner
Tamiya zimmerit applicator

Apply Tamiya putty to a small area, about 2cm.x 2cm. and dip the tool in Humbrol universal thinner, then place the tool as per the drawing and push your way to nice ridges! Stop after every 4 rows and dip in thinner again and proceed as far as you can until you run out of putty, trim the edge of the last row and remove surplus putty, apply new putty and go on. Transistions between sessions can be smoothed out with a brush with Universal Thinner. See illustration.
