    How to paint a White Rhino?

    I have a bunch of Sister Vehicles to paint and my sisters are all white and red...Painting minis with a fine brush is fine for me but I feel really out of my element when it comes to vehicles. I would like to paint my rhinos mostly white, but I run into a problem when it comes to the process of doing so. If I paint on a darker colour first and try to bring it white I find that it takes forever, and ever, and ever...If I paint a spay white first I have to apply a wash that I have found to work out ok if I keep it thin enough. Normally when dealing with darker vehicles I just drybrush on lighter colours and do a little hard edging at the end...Whit pure whit though would you only hard edge a darker colour like a grey or brown?

    Any tips on painting white vehicles at all would be awesome or any tutorials on vehicle painting of any colour would be most cool.

    Spray white.
    A very thin coat of white paint to cover any areas you missed.
    Wash a thin blue, brown or black wash into the recesses (each will give you a different finish, try some out and see what you like most).
    Paint in all the details.
    Touch up any over-washes/mistakes.
