JSU-152 build – Part 8:Tracks

  • At this point I set aside the model to construct the Friulmodel tracks (ATL-54), using Albion Alloys’ 0.5 mm diameter brass rod as pins. I don’t mind doing these expect for the tedious cutting of the brass rods to the correct length.
  • Weathered with AMMO “Burnishing Fluid” (A.MIG-2020).
  • Washed with Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” oil paint diluted in white spirit.
  • So, they are ready for the dust and mud stage…

JSU-152 build – Part 7:Weathering (streaks)

  • Streaks of AK Interactive “Dark Streaking Grime” (AK024) were applied to the hull vertical and sloping sides followed later by blending with white spirit.
  • As I was still playing with oil paints at this stage I thought I would stain the wooden handles of the tools with Winsor and Newton “Burnt Umber” oil paint, removing the excess with cotton wool buds.

JSU-152 build – Part 6:Weathering (wash)

  • Initial paint discolouration and fading was tried using dots of various oil paints (Mig Productions 502 Abteilung “Olive Green”  ABT050, “Faded Green” ABT040, “Faded Grey” ABT100, “Snow White” ABT001, “Luftwaffe Yellow” ABT010 and “German Ochre” ABT092) followed by working in with a flat brush dampened with white spirit (vertical pull strokes for the sloping surfaces).
  • Pin wash of entire vehicle with AMMO’s “Dark Brown Wash for Green Vehicles wash” (A.MIG-1005).

  • The exhaust (textured with Mr.Surfacer 1000) was painted with Lifecolor  paints  (UA704, UA703, UA702, UA701).
  • A small amount of AK Interactive “Light Rust Wash for green vehicles” (AK046) was added around the exhaust area to simulate rust staining. The excess was later removed my a brush dampened with white spirit.
  • Later, rust streaks were applied on select vertical and sloping surfaces of the upper hull by using AK Interactive “Rust Streaks” (AK013) and Mig Productions 502 Abteilung “Light Rust Brown”  ABT060, followed by blending with white spirit.

JSU-152 build – Part 4:Weathering (chipping)

  • AMMO “Russian 4BO Light Base” (A.MIG-933) was applied first by sponge, to simulate the lightest paint damage or fading.
  • This was followed by application of Vallejo Model Color “German Camouflage Black Brown” 70822 by sponge or brush to simulate deeper chipping.
