1/72 WWII Armor


Early war group build nearly finished

Hi guysWell, I was going to call this group and tutorial done, but as the pastel carrier fluid dried it has gone white around the wheel area, mustn't have stirred it properly, and I think the pastel I have used may be to bright anyway, so I may re do that step, pics aren't great, poor lighting here today, obscuring all the weathering detail, last pics are of the next group of vehicles I'll be working on, also need to do the infantry for this early war German force, all comments welcome.

1/72 group build part 3

Hi guysPart 3 of the group build, previous steps taken.1) Spray a dark grey base coat, Humbrol Pz grey with some black.2) Mid grey sprayed, aiming for all the centres of panels, this leaves a nice shaded look.4) Chipping added using dark grey and the sponge technique, trying to not overdo this step.5) gave 4 of the vehicles a blue filter, and the other 3 a khaki filter.6) paint the rubber wheels black, tracks and tools vellajo leather brown, you could use chocolate brown, but theres a little more red in the leather brown, which feels right to me.7) a coat of gloss varnish.8) add decals.9) black pin wash.Latest steps 10) second brown pin wash, deliberately more messy then the black pin wash11) Mat coat applied12) light highlight dry brushBreaking out the oil paints to start the weathering process.
