HI Everyone,

    This is my latest armor effort.  After partially assembling the kit I went to painting and the early weathering processes.  Thus far after applying the base color and modulating it with three other shades I've done a pin wash and a dot filter.

Due to the black background, the color appears much lighter than when I'm working with it on my bench/

 

Thanks for looking,

 

Gaz

Hi Everyone,

    With pastel chalk and turpentine I've applied heavy dusting to the running gear and light dusting to the horizontal surfaces up top.  I have streaked dust down the sides to try to complete the look of a vehicle that has been cruising across the Libyan Desert.

Once the upper return rollers dry into place, I'll give it a  clear coat to lock the fragile dust in place.

 

Thanks for looking!

Nice.  Good contrast between upper and lower.  Looks the ticket.  Good job.  If this vehicle were in a line, there would be dust build-up on the front side of everything.  Much like a snow drift.  Just sayin'.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

After some heavy discussions with the members of my club (AMMS Brisbane) which is an armor and figures SIG, I've followed the advice of the majority when it comes to weathering.  The gist of what I've been told is that full realism, especially the kind that blots out details, takes a distant second to parts that are more interesting to look at through restrained weathering.

 

But I get what you're saying.
