Post Apocalyptic OV-10A Bronco

Recommended Posts

And that ladies and gentlemen is pretty much it.  Things that you may not have seen are the aerofoil struts added between the gun stub wings and the engines, that shovel, assymetric props, 0.50 cal for the upper gunner and various other little details.

 

I hope you enjoyed the work in progress shots and you found it useful.  I have to say this has been by far and away my favourite model to build and its a real shame its over.  However, I have an awesome idea for the next one!

 

There are a bunch of the photos of the finished thing in the Ready of Inspection section if you haven't seen it yet.

Absolutely stunning build, Jamie. And a great weathering tutorial as well! I'll file this away for future refereence.

 

Can you provide a link to the RFI section? I must blind or so, but I'cant find the RFI thread...

 

 

Cheers

Rainer

Great step-by-step. Some useful tips that I've seen from armor guys use often but not so many on aviation modeling. You have adopted them well into the light side...:D

This thread is going to change how I build my models.

 

I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to post these great, easy to understand, step by step guides as to how you use the ammo of Mig products. I especially appreciate the side by side comparisons that help a lot with working out how much wash / streaking / dust is needed to build up this ultra realistic effect.

 

As others have said, that Pepsi sign patch is a stroke of genius.

Thanks chaps.

 

Right, last bit was the base.  It started with a cheap frame from Hobbycraft, some thin foam board and Celluclay.

Some fine grit Wet and dry was glued in place and a thin coat of plaster was applied over the clay; then the whole lot given a coat of Stynylrez Black.

Thinned PVA was brushed on, this was the base for the dirt which was fine sand, grit and real dirt from the garden.

When dry the dirt was sprayed with various tones of buff and sand.  I used multiple tones to break up the colour and create false shadows enhancing the depth.  Note how it was sprayed over the edge of the tarmac, this will help to blend it all together.

Now for a wash, Ammo of Mig Streaking Grime was thinned still further then allowed to soak into the ground work.  It needed blending over the tarmac as otherwise tide marks would appear.

Darker brown tones were used in areas to give a more 3D and realistic effect.  Dry brushing and pigments were also used after the wash was dry.

Various plants from Joefix were used too.

Here is the finished base.  It's quite simple but I wanted the aeroplane to be the focus.

And that's it, project complete!  I hope you've enjoyed the thread, I must say this is my favourite project I've done to date and is now my "the house is on fire and I've only got time to save one model" model!   :wub:

Absolutely gorgeous project.

 

I just logged in to let you know that this has been one of the most helpful threads/magazine articles/blogs that I have read in a very long time!

 

Superb! And thanks for the huge effort of taking the pictures and explaining it all. I promise you, it was worth it. You'v got a fan in me!

 

cheers,
