Sd.Kfz.232 (Tamiya 1/48)

March 22, 2014 in Armor

There is not so much to say about this model. Kit is easy to assemble and it was a really pleasure to work on it after short run kits. I wanted to try some of the weathering techniques – different filter colors, oils, pigments, etc. It’s not so easy with German gray, but it’s interesting.

  1. Excellent Dmitry, very well done. I would offer two suggestions, not criticisms, I would have used more flat coat to tone down the gloss of the oils, and used a lighter background for the photos. You did such a great job keeping your weathering subtle, it’s hard, for my old eyes anyway, to see your work against the blue.

    • Yes, you are right, Rick – there was something strange with the finish varnish layer. I’ve used Vallejo matt varnish but it’s not so flat as I expected. Also, I’ve added a one of the test shots with the white background – is it better?

      • I haven’t tried Vallejo yet, I have so much Polly Scale and Model Master it’s hard to switch to a new line of paints. I looked at the white back ground an it’s better but not much. I’m by no means even an amateur photographer. I process the photos I post with Picasa3 on my PC. On dark subjects I use the “fill light” option in the editing menu to brighten up picture, most times it works, other times I have take a new picture and start over. I hate having to be smarter than the software, it get updated more often than I’d ..lol

  2. Nice job, Dmitry…and yes, the pic with the white background shows your workmanship in a “better light”, as it were.

  3. A good looking build there Dmitry, as above the white background shows it off a lot better.
    Never the less, well done sir.

  4. Good looking model, Dmitry, I guess that a blue background suits some models more than others……………..

  5. Dmitry,
    Very nicely done. Great work.
