BTR-80 build – Part 8:Weathering (oil and fuel stains, metal and wood effects)

1 Comment

  • AK Interactive “Engine oil” (AK084), diluted in white spirits (1:1 ratio), was added to parts of the running gear, the engine hatches area and under the turret to simulate oil stains. In lesser quantities, the same mixture was added to the wheels rims to simulate staining and discolour. I also sparingly flicked the mixture from a brush onto parts of the upper hull and underside to simulate liquid stains  and spots. The same was done with AK Interactive “Fuel Stains” (AK025), diluted in white spirits (1:1 ratio).
  • The guns and metal tools were rubbed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” pigment (AK086).
  • Tamiya soot powder was applied to the end of the exhausts.
  • The wooden parts of the tools were applied with Winsor and Newton “Raw Umber” oil paint. A short while later the excess oil paint was removed and the remainder worked in with a brush.
