Tamiya GB: JS-2 straggler (part 5)

Despite starting this one with the idea of a cleanish finish, it simply looked flat to me. So after some constructive input (thanks nzdavidh), I tried copying some of Mike Rinaldi's KV-1 work pigment work. My attempt ended in a complete mess and while trying to recover it, the model decided to leap out of my hand and dive into the floor. Usual outcome - "where did all those bits come from?"; "why is there a dark purple cloud forming over the workbench?" Anyway, a day later and the hull/tracks are back together and she's gone from an OOB comp possible, to an experiment. With Mike's pics in mind, I tried to reproduce the dust accumulation with thinned Vallejo washes. The other stuff is thinned Vallejo blown on with the airbrush, and some local airbrush blending using Testors Dullcote lacquer tinted with very small amounts of Tamiya XF-68 NATO Brown and XF-69 NATO Black.

Pics are rather "forced". Experimental results so far...

Very much enjoying the GB here, and many thanks for the encouragement on this one. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.
