I was sure I had posted this already, but after spending the past 20 minutes looking through all of my posts, it appears not.
I've been working on and off with this one for a year or so. It is a typical Tamiya kit, it goes together like a dream. I've added a few pieces from the Passion Models PE set. I'm going for a DAK finish, with a weathered dark yellow over german grey. I had my first attempt at salt weathering with this. I'm reasonably happy with it so far, except for some overly vigourous brushing which removed a door handle which will need to be replaced.
I need to do detail painting next, then follow it up with a coat of future before more weathering
Grant, for this one I used some sandable primer I picked up from Mitre 10, just a flat white primer.
Gary, I'll see how I go, I might sponge some extra dark yellow on to make the german grey showing throug less intense in some areas. I really need to take some better pics in more light to show the effect better
I've been working away on the Opel lately so time for an update.
We got a miniskip bin in a few weeks ago to do a big clean up in the garage. Amongst the stuff I found an old Italeri Opel kit that had been crushed in the box. Luckily the canvas cover was still in one piece, and even better was a great fit for the Tamiya kit I gave it a coat of Tamiya Khaki with the airbrush and then added several drops of buff and sprayed it on the raised areas to highlight them. I also fitted a replacement door handle from the spares box. I still need to do a little more detail painting to have it ready for a coat of Future.
Yeah I'd be keen I've got a few Blitz's and some of the new British softskins from the likes of Mirror models and Thunder models to build. Can't start anything for a wee while as I'm working flat out on renovations atm.
