This was a fun, and unexpected project. I wanted to brush the dust off of my airbrush skills before I worked on something serious.
However, once I got paint flowing though the brush it just wouldn’t stop.
This model was a couple firsts for me.
This is the first time I’ve exclusively used Vallejo’s Model air. For two reasons: 1) I had all the right colors due to my recent purchase of Vallejo’s German Camouflage AFV kit, and 2) the whole goal was to warm up the ol’ airbrush
This was the first time I stuck with a weathering plan. Typically I experiment on my personal models. This project utilized a Vallejo Model wash and a secret weapon weathering powder for the exhaust vents and the soot on the main gun.
First time utilizing decals, I’m typically a hand paint everything kind off guy, but since I was going for a more historically accurate project. I used Vallejo’s gloss varnish to prep the surface of the model, then micro sol & micro set to finish of the decals.
I plan to utilize Vallejo’s crackle medium on my next vehicle for a weathering effect.
