Value Gear wooden crates


I have mentioned before my regard for the Value Gear resin stowage sets. In preparation for future projects I thought I would paint and finish a complete pack – wooden crates #4. Initial work was painting with Vallejo Panzer Aces “New Wood” 311 or Vallejo Panzer Aces “Old Wood” 310. Following this various techniques were attempted – some new to me. Thus, some of the crates were treated with filters to vary the base colour. Others were treated with Winsor and Newton oils or dark washes. For a few crates I wanted to have a chipped paint look. This was achieved with application of hairspray or AK Interactive “Worn Effects” solution (AK088), then Tamiya XF-65 “Field Grey” and selective washing away of the paint layer. Finally, all of the crates were sprayed with acrylic matt varnish. I am quite pleased with how they turned out – with their various appearances – and look forward to using some of them in a suitable vehicle.
