More progress! But also more questions and before I can keep going I need help from you readers! Down below are 5 images that I need help identifying. They are numbered 1-5, maybe some of you can comment on what is is and mostly what it does! I don't know how to weather these items (grease, oil, dirt?). What moves and when? Anyway have a look and let me know. it's kinda funny how I have starting taking parts of models so for granted without even knowing what it really does!
3 the black thing
4 3 things here: wires on left, circle on bottom and door (engine?)
Thanks for that. Now on to the dozerblade, which has turned out to be my most succesful part of the mission so far. Here are the steps:
Black primer with tin bitz basecoat
Boltgun metal drybrush. I actually have two of these cans, the one I used has a bunch of black wash in it.
At this point I did two IMPORTANT things that take half a day:
1. glossy coat
2. 2 coats of hairspray
Then on to the next step: some patchy paint of the color that your tank is in, my case it's the deserty yellow
When that dried, I grabbed a brush with warm water and started to work it hard but not in a organized way, the paint comes of in a really patchy way.
IMPORTANT next step: another gloss coat to seal this result.
Then grab the oilpaint, in this case burnt umber and thin it with the turpentine. Then start having fun! I mixed it with a bunch of weathering powders that I made from my pastel chalks.
Late at night I gave it the matte coat and there it was this morning. Not done yet but getting pretty damn close!
Hope this inspires!
