Example text

Tamiya JA Green XF-13 was chosen for the base colour. This is a nice rich colour that I’ve used before, and which I know works well in conjunction with a lighter weathering colour. A pre-shading layer of Tamiya Nato Black XF-69 was first sprayed over the entire kit. Next, the painting proper began (as always) with thin layers of shaded colour, starting off with the ‘out of the bottle’ colour before adding on lighter shades until I felt the look was just right. Since this vehicle was supposed to be an abandoned and dusty one, I wanted to add some sort of weathering, and to do this I used the ‘sponge technique’ described previously.

Detaching the individual tracks is easy using straight-edged nail clippers. The main aim when attaching together these link-to-link non-workable tracks is to keep them in line and very straight. Make sure that they aren’t too tight and that there is ample space to wrap them around the rear drive sprocket. Testors’ slow-drying glue is perfect for this application, giving ample time for installation on the vehicle and keeping the tracks workable. After assembling about 20 tracks, give them a quick coat of the glue – just enough to thinly coat the tracks.

Streaking and chipping can be applied if necessary. The tracks and front hull are being shaded with Tamiya thinner mixed with some black pastel chalk powder. One of many washes that were applied to the model kit, to even out the brightness of the paint. Final weathering When I was satisfied with the final look I applied a number of washes of Winsor & Newton Ivory Black and Burnt Umber oils, mixed in a ratio of 70:30. The subtle streaks and fading were done with my Iwata Custom Micron and a heavily thinned post-shade mix of Tamiya Flat Black and Tamiya XF-64 Red Brown acrylic paints.
