Bourrasque finished....

I chose this model for my modelling restart because i thought it will be fast...and building really was,but finishing was the test of all my skills starting sharp-edge camouflage with high contrast,work with big decals, lot of washes and oil jobs, work with rust and pigments on relativelly big surfaces... I worked on it  for one month almost for several hours every day.Result isn't perfect by my imagination, so i now know what refine next time and I think its relatively good after almost two years break :) Hope you like it too.

Cheers! Jirka

...And two reference pictures on the end...

Winter whitewash

I like a 1:48 scale military, it's cheap, fast to build and size of the kits is ideal for trying new techniques.
 Here is Tamiya Marder III M, I bought thist kit to test currently very popular technique of making winter camouflage using the hairspray. And here's results of first steps...

Kit is built straight from box,only i added is a tarp cover,
because i didn't want to delay with interior.
Tarp is made from paper towel with a coat of diluted Tamiya putty. 

I used Tamiya acrylics thinned with laquer thinner for base colors
 and for whitewash is thinned by water.A hairspray layer is done
with Schwarzkopf TAFT extra strong applied with an airbrush. 

Hope you like it. Cheers. Jirka

Tracks basic coat

Hello,today i want to present you fast article about tracks base paint. It can be also useable for any steel surface. I used Tamiya acrylics for base coat and Tamiya ad Humbrol enamels for dirty and rust effects.

 First coat by mixture of Tamiya paints,note blue color for better look of natural steel.

 A light overspray with brown to add base for rust effects 
and black to make shadows for deep...

 ...and touch of enamels to finish look of rusty and dirty tracks,
i made a wash with humbrol rust for base and after that
 alternate sputtered flat earth and rust from brush using pressed air from an airbrush.

Finished track link ready for next weatherig by pigments or similar effects...

All work on both track links took just about one hour.Its fast with good result, exactly how i like it.

Thanks for reading. Jirka
