Got this free model on 1:50 scale from here and I understand that its author is Kamino Ana - many thanks. I decided, some time ago, to use paint on all models I will make, so this machine is not an exception. (Well, I have to admit, I cannot work clean and fine enough, as other modelers do, so I can't get the "perfect crime" without paint and other hiding techniques) :mrgreen: Also, various enhancements used...
The base for the tank is made of 2 empty cigarettes boxes, glued (of course, after removing that plastic foil - and also with some papers inside, to gain some weight for them). Then glued some paper on the flanks... and have there some "rivets" made out of little points of white glue.
dry rapidly, half an hour is almost enough - then a silver paint and some scratches and weathering made them look like this:
The upper side was covered with white glue, then I used some coffee grounds for the soil, grey bricks near the house wall... and some hair from an old shaving brush for the bunch grass there.
The rest of the work is well known to our modeling mates, so I took no pictures of those phases. And here it is the final result, after all ideas were on trial, most of them applied.... and this is it.
The front label is a little shorter than I wanted to be, although I measured the base, and also made it on the right length in Photoshop. I can correct this aspect, I am not yet sure if with some paint or with another printed label.
Lot of dirt and weathering out there, huh? tooth1 Well, Fall Weiss was an autumnal campaign...
This is it, thank you for watching it.
