Even still I don't think any of the colors turned out looking flat or too uninteresting. For the chipping I mostly used a blister pack sponge piece to dab and a brush to add scratches and larger scuffs. After that is a rather light highlight to look like the edge of chipped paint. I used a lot of AK Interactive weathering products for this model. A couple of filters, the brown wash for DAK vehicles, and three of the streaking grimes. After the clear coat I add some MIG Productions pigments for a dusty finish. Especially on the feet and lower legs.
|Here's the front of the model. The only thing I am unhappy with in these pictures is how the color of the grass shows up as really quite yellow.|
|You can see I added a little motto to this side and also I added extra leaves to one side of the fallen log as if the wind is gathering them there.|
|On the rear you can see I added a bit of stowage. A large metal container for tools perhaps and a large tarp.|
|The left side, showing a small sapling about to be crushed my a German war machine.|
There you have it, another model for a game no one will play with me... It was really enjoyable working on this walker and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Can't wait to paint some of my other German walkers, but with my new airbrush. I should be able to achieve modulation as well as crisper detail on the camouflage lines.
On a side note, flickr has really increased its services. You now get 1TB of storage and they have an in browser photo editor all for free. The editor is really nice as the UI is much better than what you get from Windows and it has quite a few features. There's even an app for the editor for iPhone which you can link directly to your flickr account.
