Tiger 1 Mid Production
February 15, 2015 in Armor
After doing the Hanomag 251 in Panzer Gray, it was time to do some Armor in the tritone camouflage. This is my Tamiya Tiger Mid Production Tank 131 of SPZABT 101 in Summer Normandy France 1944. I used Model Master Enamel Paint, and Vallejo Washes. I wanted to blend the Camo a bit, so I made my own filter out of Tamiya XF-64 Red Brown Acyrilic paint, water, and dish soap to break surface tension. I considered using the MIG pigment powder again to add mud, but decided that not all Armor has mud. I am very leased with how this turned out. I am enjoying building and painting AFVs. Now it is time to do a plane again, and I will begin the F4U 1-A Corsair that I have in my stash.
