SU-122 build – Part 8:Tracks

  • MasterClub tracks (MTL35024) were linked with Albion Alloys’ 0.5 mm brass rod.
  • Treated with UMP “Ultimate Burnishing Liquid”.
  • Washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” and “Burnt Sienna” in enamel thinners.
  • A roughly 2:1 mixture of medium  and darker colour pigments (detailed here) were dropped onto the tracks and fixed with a 1:1 mixture of AMMO “Pigment Fixer” (A.MIG-3000) and enamel thinners, added by brush.
  • Darker (wetter) patches on the tracks were created using dark brown oil paints in enamel thinners.
  • The parts of the external side of the tracks in contact with the ground and the guide horns were brushed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.

SU-122 build – Part 7:Weathering (dust and rain marks)

  • AMMO “Oilbrusher” oil paints (“Dust” A.MIG-3516, “Dusty Earth” A.MIG-3523, “Medium Soil” A.MIG-3522, “Summer Soil” A.MIG-3534) were dotted on the much of the horizontal surface, underside, running gear of the vehicle and wheels, which had previously been dampened with enamel thinner. A round brush was used to dilute and blend the oils.
  • The same oils were dotted on the sloping and vertical surfaces. A flat brush was used to draw them down the sides to create dust and rain streaks.
  • A 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner was sprayed over the entire model.

SU-122 build – Part 6:Weathering (streaks)

To the vertical and sloping sides of the upper hull dots of AMMO Oilbrusher “Starship Filth”, “Starship Bay Sludge” and “Rust” were added. Then, using a flat brush dampened with enamel thinners, the oil paint was drawn down the side to simulate streaks. After drying, this process was repeated multiple times.

SU-122 build – Part 5:Weathering (wash)

  • I wanted to add some tarps or covers – sculpted using “green stuff” putty and painted with various Vallejo Model Color acrylics – at this stage in order that they were attached before too much weathering steps were done. Other stowage items will be added separately later.
  • The entire vehicle was washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” and “Lamp Black” oil paints (ratio about 5:1) in enamel thinner – the excess being cleaned up with a dry brush or cotton bud.
  • AMMO Oilbrusher “Olive Green” (A.MIG-3505), “Starship Filth” (A.MIG-3513) and “Starship Bay Sludge” (A.MIG-3532) was used on various points of the vehicle to provide both light and dark variations.
