T-34/76 (early 1943) build – Part 9:Weathering (dirt and mud)

Wilder “Dry Russian Earth” (GP04) and “Dry Russian Clay” (GP07) pigments were brushed onto the wheels, running gear, lower hull, upper hull, turret top and tracks and fixed with a 1:1 mixture of AMMO “Pigment Fixer” (A.MIG-3000) and enamel thinners, added by brush.

T-34/76 (early 1943) build – Part 7:Weathering (dust and rain marks)

  • AMMO “Oilbrusher” oil paints (“Dust” A.MIG-3516, “Dusty Earth” A.MIG-3523, “Medium Soil” A.MIG-3522) were dotted on the much of the horizontal surface, underside, running gear of the vehicle and wheels, which had previously been dampened with enamel thinner. A round brush was used to dilute and blend the oils.
  • The same oils were dotted on the sloping and vertical surfaces. A flat brush was used to draw them down the sides to create dust and rain streaks.

T-34/76 (early 1943) build – Part 6:Weathering (streaks)

To the vertical and sloping sides of the upper hull and turret dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Filth”, “Starship Bay Sludge”, Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” and Abteilung 502 “Abt060” were added. Then, using a flat brush, the oil paint was drawn down the side to simulate streaks. After drying, this process was repeated multiple times. I must admit it looks rather non-existent in the pictures – it has a bit more presence in real life.

T-34/76 (early 1943) build – Part 5:Weathering (wash)

  • The entire vehicle was washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” and “Lamp Black” oil paints (ratio about 5:1) in enamel thinner – the excess being cleaned up with a dry brush or cotton bud.
  • AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Bay Sludge” (A.MIG-3532) was worked into various recesses, the excess being cleaned away.
  • AMMO Oilbrusher “Olive Green” (A.MIG-3505) was used on various high points of the vehicle.
  • Certain hull panel lines were treated with AMMO “Panel Line Wash – Dark Green Grey” (A.MIG-1608).
