Hi mate just catching up with this glad to see you back at the Paper Mill.

 

Stunning work and love the illustration work. Tomek if you have a phot package (Photoshop) – Try pulling your image into it. Think Corel make their own version, which would be a lot cheaper. It's easier to add some texture, shadow, stains, stitching etc.

 

Pretty cool and I like that a lot – keep um coming Taff :D

Tomek,

 

EXQUISITE work. ..I keep forgetting its paper and card because it's just out of this world.

 

Absolutely ADTOUNDING..

 

Tomek, I was wondering , could you not put whatever ink you are using or paint or mud thing to make a boot print by using your own thumb print and fashion the boot print..you will have the FIngerprint lines so you could fashion boot print with that just a thought/idea.or your small finger print.

 

 

Keep up the Amazing build..

:wow: :bow:

Thanks for your warm comments  ^_^

 

Taffy, thanks for looking in. Yeah, I could use Photoshop, but I'm really out of touch with the new version - last one I used was 2 or something. For now, I'm commited to learn Corel. I just found that in the Corel suit there is a module, Photo-Paint, that have similar functionality as Photoshop. I wanted to do some overspray of the lettering on the crates and Photo-Paint may just do the trick. I'll try to update with improved creates when done. I may try as well some stains, etc.

 

Maru, maybe tweaking finger prints would work, but I don't know if I could get repeatable results - all boot prints should be the same, except the size of course. I think the amount of the paint, as well as its consistency are important (just as in regular stamps). I made here several mistakes for sure. Maybe next time!

Fantastic work, you're a wizard with paper, card, scraps etc.

 

For boot prints, have you considered a stencil? You could then drybrush/scrumble (is that a word?) the mud on through it...

Thanks guys!

 

Thanks Matt for the stencil suggestion. I'm not surprised I haven't thought about - after all it's a plastic modeling technique  :DodgeBall: . 

I'll give it a try!

 

Thinking about arrangement of all the equipment. I wasn't able to reproduce well tow cable myself, so I ordered one. Package on the way. The net was inspired by re-watching TV series Band of Brothers  ;)

Loic, Mark - thank you for your kind comments!

 

Ufff! The Chaf is finally done! What a relief  :P . I wish you could see me gluing the last part - I was happy as a 3 year old. It was good experience overall. I learn few things, had plenty of setbacks (I stop counting how many times I had to reattached parts). The tank even survived two drops! The kit itself has it's shortcomings, I added few more, but in the end I think it looks decent. 

Thank you for all of you who chipped in with your advice, encouragement and positive feedback! Nothing was ignored. Even if I did not follow some of your suggestions, I will try them next time for sure.

 

Time for pics!
