A brilliant effect of shading and detail displayed here. Nice work, sir. 🙂

Craig beat me to it (as usual), maybe the windscreen surround and the wipers could be toned down a bit as well, but, maybe not, it looks great anyway.

A trick I have learned with “post shading,” which I pass on for anyone who wants to use it, is that after I go over the model as Brian has here, I thin that last iteration of the “weathered” paint to about 30% paint/70% thinner and then go over the whole model. That last coat is thin enough that everything shows through, but it is toned down and muted (and I can control that effect by how much of the final coat I apply). It’s the way to bring the “Spanish school” more into line with the way things really look while utilizing “artistic judgement” for enhancement.

Tom, thanks for the great tip!

Great job !
One I never thought I’d see.
Nicely done, not all shined up for the Herr Oberst. Just a working vehicle.

I need to check Tamiya’s lineup for 1/48 cars! Didn’t even know this was around. I’ve built a few Heller 1/43 scales to share space with the planes. The windows certainly look clear on this example. I had to look twice to see if the rear window was actually there! Great job capturing such a small subject with your camera!

Nice work on that Citroen Brian. Those faded panel work are very well done. One can imagine this car in a curvy country side road filled with staff members going to a meeting. Nice one, hope too se it soon on a diorama.
