Tamiya Stug III G part 3

I'm not armour modeller so I'm not sure if if the process I'm following is what is done usually, but that is half the fun.

I pre shaded some of the areas with flat black. The intent is a winter white wash so I don't know how much of this will remain after all the paint is on.

I then painted the model with the Tamiya XF60 which looked way to yellow to me. I don't know how yellow German armour was but it just looked silly to me so I toned it down by spraying Gunze 79 Sand Yellow over many of flat areas.

TO make things a little more complicated I thought I'd try a 3 tome camouflage scheme, again I have no idea if this accurate but it seems that the operating units just did whatever they felt like to camouflage their vehicles.

I also wanted to weather this layer before I applied the white wash so I figured that I may as well give this hairspray technique a go. I applied a layer of AK interactive Worn Effects and let that dry. Then I used Tamiya Red brown (XF64) and Olive Green (XF58) to apply a really bad camouflage pattern.

I really didn't do as good a job as I'd hoped with the lines, as they are way to wide. But as I could remove most of what I didn't like I wasn't that bothered.

Once I clean the airbrush I used water to dampen the surfaces and a short brush to stipple the surface, I also used a couple of other brushes and a toothpick to do some scratches.

I can see why this technique has taken off, its simple, and fast to get a reasonable (to my eyes anyway) result. I then sealed the finish with a coat of Tamiya Satin, which makes it look a bit harsher than it really is.

Before the whitewash I think I should at least put some colours on the the stowage.. hopefully I'll get this done before I go away.

Cheers

So different to modelling aircraft...

Hello Calum: great to see your experiments. I'm sure we'll be able to transfer some of these techniques to future aircraft projects. Looking forward to your next update. Cheers, Ralph.
