Tamiya Marder III - some weathering.

Was hoping to achieve a dry winter finish - one that was more worn off than chipped/scraped. No wet mud this time.

The chipping looks rather raw closer in.

Muffler could do with some tonal variation - thinking of a patchy white application.

Restrained earth effects using a paste of Humbrol enamel and MIG pigment (thanks Jamie).

This one's been a crash-test dummy for afew new (to me) techniques, and a first winter scheme. Tried to concentrate on the techniques, rather than getting everything right "in one go". Comments/suggestions most welcome. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.

That looks really good. Blown away by how it came together really, didn't think it was quite there in the previous post but it looks great now.

minor nitpick = the wooden handles of the tools look like they could use something else... not sure what that something is. A little more tonal variation perhaps.

my only other thought = did Jamie have any advice about metalising stuff. I reckon the gun breech area, aiming wheels and gunners seats could use some of his magic metalising...
