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
