ISU-122 build – Part 11:Weathering (oil and fuel stains)

2 Comments

  • Dilute mixtures of Abteilung 502 “Engine Grease” (ABT160) and “Bitumen” (ABT004) oil paint in enamel thinner were flicked from a brush onto the surfaces of the hull and running gear, to represent the subtlest stains or patches.
  • “Engine Grease” oil paint – dissolved in enamel thinner to a much higher concentration – was added to parts of the running gear, certain wheels (to represent leakage from a seal), hatch hinges and parts of the engine deck to represent older oil stains. Once dry, a similar mixture was prepared and Humbrol “Gloss Cote” was added to it, to represent newer oil stains.
  • “Bitumen” oil paint – dissolved in enamel thinner to a much higher concentration – was added around the fuel filler points on the engine deck and casemate to represent older diesel stains. Once dry, a more dilute mixture was prepared and Humbrol “Gloss Cote” was added to it, to represent newer diesel stains.
