Forgive me if these are getting excessive...
...I almost hesitate to post this after Pat but his thread at track 48 was a great guide for me in trying out the color modulation...so if it looks like a student following a master that's because it is!!
So, a lot of firsts here for me, I was curious what effect the preshading would have on the modulation process...neither of which have I done before....
All of the spraying was done with thinned Tamiya acrylics...stinky
first some preshading over the grey, using a mix of Tamiya desert yellow, yellow and green
Then I went over it with a light coating of the basecoat, a mix of khaki drab and desert yellow
Thn this afternoon after work I tried to tackle the color modulation...with relative success I think...
I'm pretty happy with it considering it was my first try...I will admit it was rather tricky with all that stowage on there!! And I know the pics aren't the best, but you can see the different effects of the modulation and preshading, the preshading is still very obvious in the shadow areas (you can see it on the transmission cover) and the modulation takes over in the highlighted areas. So I'm glad I tried it.
Next step is going in with a brush to further enhance some of the modulation and then future (another first...any tips on spraying this stuff?)
Thanks for looking!
