Afternoon all from the land of the Long White Cloud. This started life about a month ago as an experiment – First time using Ammo of Mig acrylics and first attempt at the ‘modulation method’. So because I don’t want to bore everybody here at iM with the intervening steps, here’s what it looks like all finished-off, (apologies to folks with slow broadband as it’s quite photo-heavy !).
Built straight from the box with no additions, I will be getting a set of the MiniArt British tank figures to group around and in the model in the near future. Weathering after the main paint modulation, filters & decals (in chronological order) – Dirty brown oil pin-wash, chipping and scratches, streaks & stains, heavily thinned dirty grey acrylic on the lower sections & wheels to simulate road dirt and finally pigments & mud splashes.
Please feel free to make any comment, ask any questions or suggest anything I can improve upon – seriously, I’ll take all the help I can get. This’ll be the last armour project for a while as I’ve got an F40 to finish and I’m also about 50% of the way through a 1:48 P-51 (both Tamiya).
