GB. Tiger I. Part IV. Base Colour

Did you think that you´d wait days to see the base coat?

No no no my friends, this is modelling on line!. We have been making all this work just to spend no more than 10 minutes painting the Panzer Grey base color. I just used Tamiya´s XF-63 with a little bit of pure white and I applied this extremely thinned paint mix (90% thinner) in several coats. I insisted with the mix more or less depending the place but, as can be clearly seen in the pictures, all the underneath effects can be clearly seen and look integrated with the base colour. Just at the end, I airbrushed pure white in a few parts to get the maximum light.

Very important to airbrush slowly the base coat, no hurries. Just see how it covers little by little the weathered base to your taste. You can hide the awful dirt spots or the illogical and ugly chips.

And most important. From this moment, you have a base color that will be really helpful in the following steps as you have a map, a guide to highlight, chip and weather your kit. From now ahead, you have your second chance.
