1/35 M4A2 Marine Sherman by Academy
Thought I might share my older work from last year, this is the M4A2 Sherman from Academy, in 1/35 scale.
I understand that how ‘weathered’ for a working tank could be controversial. Despite that, I just wanted to make mine look special. Hey it’s my model anyway. I really enjoy weathering tanks.
I had so much fun on this work because this is the one I actually tested out using the Chipping Medium from Vallejo. I’ve got fascinated in the use of different weathering techniques since then. I was just testing out at the time and this Sherman just turned out great, for me at least.
So…for your reference, I painted multiple layers of colors in different tones with an airbrush, and used Chipping Medium between layers. The rusting textures were applied later on.
