Tamiya M10

Bit of an update, having loads of work done on the house so fitting in modelling
is proving quite difficult at the moment, managing the trades is like herding cats :|

So some primer on the main parts.

Drivers and rad ops hatch locking arms fitted along with the hinge casting numbers. scope toppers made from magic sculpt.

Tamiya lacquer gun metal for the floor, ready for chipping up later

And the .50 ammo box, detailed up with evergreen half round strip stretched over a tea light candle and added

Not too much left to do with the basic build so proper paint soon. the primer has knocked back the foundry markings so they should be okay under the main paint.

Not had much time on the bench lately so a small update.

I'll use the AK chipping fluids for this one as they give you more control over salt, the salt technique is really good for large areas but the Hairspray or AK chipping way gives you a bit more finesse.

Really just the stowage of tools, scratching up the straps and things

Fighting compartment floor, about 50% of the weathering done on this so far.

More weathering for the fighting compartment.

A bit of Tamiya smoke over the white base on the sponson sides.

Again slow progress I'm afraid chaps, Had an unexpected trip to A&E on Sunday which threw out the modelling. The old ticker is playing up again which really upset my bench time as I had to stay overnight. Here is the latest on the M10.
It does blow out the Mrs's theory that i don't have a heart .. I do It just don't work proper !

Started the turret interior, well one side at the moment.

The idea is to get the insides done, masked off and the move to the exterior, should be fun.
 
How did you get on with that washable agent?

Cheers Chaps,

So just spend an hour or two painting up the gun tube cleaning rods, should of checked before hand as you can see bugger all of them.

Exhaust has just been started, Black and Hull red so far with some chipping fluid added, next will be the OD finish. I'll chip it up and start weathering it.

A bit more of an update.

Concentrating on the exhaust, I have used several layers of chipping fluid and multiple
colours with this part. It looks okay but I think it needs more rust.

Cheers chaps,

All the chipping so far has been done with the AK chipping fluid, it’s really good stuff indeed and well worth the dosh. The washable agent, you mix with normal acrylic paint, you can then scrub it off with clean water so it should be ideal for weathering. I’m going to use it for mud and dust and possibly mess about with the OD a bit in the high wear areas.

Tonight's progress, still pretty much a works in progress folks and the daylight bulbs are blowing out the colours a tad,
Its pretty much looking as I wanted it at this stage, just enough pre-shade coming through and a nice faded OD colour to break up the single colour.
