Nice mate, it's getting there... 8) 8)

Given the damage you've done re the guards are you going to go a really dirty tank ?

Cheers Damo

While I wait for my head to figure out how I want the upper deck and turret to look ( weathering vice ) I started on the Wheels . Light wash's and predust and mud.

Using water thinned AK Dust , and air from the AB I 'blow' the dust arround on the Wheel













'buffing the washes



Adding oil streaks

Placing a good drop of mig/ak/ammo Oil in one corner of center Wheel.




grab the Axel With my pliers, and 'spinn the whell as good as I can

felt it was time to get some mud color on this puppy .

 Made up a 'slush' oil bath ( Oil + thinner )  for the pigments to settle into. Slabbing it onto the hull, follow by dabbing in several pigments colors into the wet mix.








 Once 'so so' happy with the color, I sealed it with AK's ultra varnish.

 after letting it dry I went back and fort with a short stiff brush and a few producst from Wilder and Ammo to make some splatter effects

Wow, so look what I brought out from the corner of dust..

Sat the the 1/14 truck I'm building ( the 620r ) to sort out some stuff on the F. Not that much left to do on it, just needed to sort out the turret and servo recoil. and re paint some parts of it, and get on to the weathering stage .

So. I used the stock recoil setup, just swopped out the motor , and ziptied in a servo , and used a piano wire to make the recoil happening

looks shait, but works 




had to touch up the turret also. been scrathed and Paint flaked of during the rest period . Quess I should have used a automobile primer , ore a better Wash before first coat back when I did ut first time
