1 Comment

  • Paint chips were simulated using LifeColor “4BO Var.” (UA239) and  Vallejo Model Color “German Camouflage Black Brown” (70822), applied with a sponge or brush.
  • The exhaust was painted with the various colours of the LifeColor rust set.
  • The entire vehicle was washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” and “Lamp Black” oil paints in enamel thinner – the excess being cleaned up with a dry brush or cotton bud.
  • Wilder “Olive Drab” (LS34) oil paint was used on various high points of the vehicle.
  • AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Bay Sludge” (A.MIG-3532) or “Starship Filth” (A.MIG-3513) were worked into various recesses, the excess being cleaned away.
  • To the vertical and sloping sides of the hull dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Filth”, “Starship Bay Sludge” and “Rust” 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.
  • Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” was painted onto the wooden handles of the tools and then wiped in one direction with a cotton bud to simulate wood grain.
  • Everything was then sprayed with a 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner.
  • A mixture of medium coloured pigments were brushed onto wheels and the top surface of the hull (underneath the turret) and fixed in place by applying a 1:1 mixture of AMMO “Pigment Fixer” (A.MIG-3000) and enamel thinners by brush.
  • The same pigment mixture was turned into a paste by adding water and Vallejo “Matt Medium” and then flicked from the end of a brush to the underside of the hull to represent dirt splatter.
  • The machine gun and metal tools were brushed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.
