Response to Great work! How and what did you use to do it? nt


I used Green Stuff from Gale Force Games (because it is easy for me to source) although I found it to be a bit reluctant to stick to the model. I might try Miliput next time. I applied the putty and textured it as described by Alex Clark in his Osprey book on modeling the Panzer IV in 1/72 scale. I'll post some pics of the tool in my next WIP post. I did some additional texturing with a jewelers screwdriver. It took me some time to get the application of putty thin enough, and the early surfaces I worked on are a bit thick and uneven.
