M-72 build – Part 4:Weathering

1 Comment

  • A small amount of chipping was applied with a sponge using Vallejo Model Color “German Camouflage Black Brown” (70822).
  • The entire vehicle and figures were washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” and “Lamp Black” (roughly 5:1 ratio) oil paint in enamel thinner.
  • The diorama base was treated with AMMO “Starship Filth” oil paint between the cobblestones, with the excess wiped away.
  • The tyres were treated with AMMO “Dusty Earth” oil paint, with the excess wiped away.
  • Everything was then sprayed with a 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner.
  • As it was an urban scene, I used AMMO “Rubble” (A.MIG-3013) and “Brick Dust” (A.MIG-3015) pigments on various parts of the vehicle, base and figures, loosely fixed by the addition of Humbrol enamel thinner.
  • The exhausts were lightly treated with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK-086) and AMMO “Light Rust” (A.MIG-3006) pigments.
  • Various stains on the base were created using Abteilung 502 “Engine Grease” (ABT160) and “Bitumen” (ABT004) oil paint in enamel thinners. To simulate thicker oil stains, “Engine Grease” oil paint was mixed with Humbrol “Gloss Cote” and applied in a few patches with a brush.
  • As the figures were clearly celebrating victory, I placed a battered Nazi poster on the ground, ready to be run over by the oncoming Soviet vehicles.
