And some splattering of the area to tie it all in.

I always end up saying this about your builds. fcuk that's good.

Cheers Sim :-D

So Just getting my hand back in with some traditional weathering, chipping this time painted on type.
Just around the drivers hatch to see how it works out.

So this is what used for the light OD scuffing around the chips. You have to make the scuffs a bit lighter than the overall base coat.

Panzer aces Stencil 313, US Army Tank Crew 318 and Vallejo Retarder 597 mixed with tap water.

And the metal brownish parts, applied tightly over the above scuffing.

Mig Ammo chipping Mig-044 , too brown for my liking so I added some Red Oxide Primer light base Mig-921 to make it a bit more red - 50-50 mix- no need tho thin the Mig Ammo paints but I add a tad of retarder. After its dried then a little wash with light rust wash, blending in with some clean mineral spirits, the wash that is.

Easy
;)

seconded, with builds like this we are going to put Arrse modelling on the internet radar, this build really shows the opportunity Arrse gives to show a model build in progress page by page. if anyone is considering taking this activity up, they'll get encouragement and tech tips right here.

Cheers guys,
Sharing the methods/ techniques is what it’s all about, I’m self taught and all of it is learnt from trial and error. I started out modelling well before the internet age so resources were very limited, the modelling mags of the time were mainly black and white photos so no real use to gauge how to do things. So it was all frustrating, limited products and no real knowledge sharing going on at the time.
So If I can help out then I will chaps, I’m no expert but I will pass on what I know and how to do it, no problem at all.

Your weathering I must say is bloody awesome!
But I must point out one thing, as an ex Tankie I’ve never seen rust on a drivers hatch. I pointed this out to a bloke once who weathered a CVRT!! :rolleyes:
Think about it !!!! :lol::lol::lol:

Cheers fella,
Totally get the CVRT and rust matey, alloy and all that, :grin: I’m just throwing some artistic licence into the mix to give a bit more visual interest into the build, also it was a good spot to practice on and offered a good place that if it send south it was easy to clean up. It’s actually a lot more subtle than the photo, I think the camera has also picked up on the orange a lot.

A tad more done tonight, more weathering of the hull sides and front,
plus a bit more subtle chipping.

Chipping kept to a minimum and only around the high traffic areas that would get warn away, some subtle new rust in and around a few areas.
Will be adding some rain marks and a bit more dust and splattering once the running gear is sorted out.

Moving onto the boring bits now the painting up of the road wheel rubber rims.
No weathering on these yet apart from the sprocket and idler wheel. Some preliminary mud
around the sprocket and idler, the road wheels will get the same treatment.

Rubber road wheels are painted using Vallejo Panzer Aces light Rubber.

Sprocket has had some chipping a light rust wash, looks very orange in the photo's but it's not that bad
in real life. Oily silver to pick out the wear on the teeth yet. Should look okay with some dust an mud on the outer face.

Not had much bench time lately chaps so a micro update.

Slowly adding more mud to the running gear, these will get sprayed a light dust colour yet to knock the stark contract back and blend it all in.

And started on the rear stowage - K Rations, these were a light colour wood treated with linseed oil so I'm trying to replicate this. Base coat is Vallejo Iraqi sand followed by a Vallejo New wood glaze and then a wood brown oil wash.

More work on the mud, the darker mud tone added and blended in, starting to come to life now
with some texture and subtle earth tones, a little more work yet but about 80% there.

The front has had a quick blast of chipping fluid ready for the dust coat, I'm going to use a fresh bottle of Mig Ammo washable dust, not that I don't trust
the stuff - but I don't !! The chipping fluid is a bit of extra insurance just in case.

rack time, so these tracks had a rubber blocks on which the pins went through, trying a few new techniques so give a bit of
texture to the rubber. They are only test fitted at this point in time and still have a load more processes to go through.

Paints used for the rubber portion are Vallejo Panzer Aces Dark rubber, Light rubber and Vallejo Dark Grey.
Primed with Halfords finest grey primer and the first base coat was Mig Ammo Dark Tracks A.MIG-035.
I then sprayed freehand with no masking Vallejo Dark rubber on the inside and outer face on the track trying to leave the
Dark Track colour on the guide teeth and end connectors. Doesn't have to be precise as you can touch up with a brush later.

Main Paints for the rubber sections. The black sponge is another high tech tool used later.
;)


1609153030501.png


Base coat for the entire track-After primer.

1609153078233.png


I then used the black sponge to to add Vallejo Panzer Aces light rubber, much in the way you use it to chip up paint, I mixed up the dark and light rubber and applied over
the top, building up layers. Dark grey Vallejo was also thrown in to give some contrast.

They will get some dust, washes and further grime yet, some work on the inner face and maybe some pigments.

Both track are now done and temp fitted.

So a tad of washable dust - last time I used this it wasn't very washable so a new bottle acquired
and another crack at it. much better now.
