Part III / Washes
I applied washes mixing "dark-yellow" y "matt-brown-yellow" y thinner enamel of Humbrol in all the armor. Special washes on the camu with "matt-army-green" . with "dark-earth" in lines, screws, corners, damage zones, etc.
Applied of chips with Vallejo mixing brown-red with black.
I retouched the tools, mixed white and leather brown of Humbrol and metal with "metalcote". The tweezers with Vallejo orange-brown.
2nd. Phase.- For the following washes I used oils of "502 Abteilung - Wash-brown" of MIG mixed with Spirit-solvent. Please see the pics for the method of application.
Mud: Mixing of Mr. surfacer 1000 of Gunze Sangyo (20%) + brown pigments (40%) + dust of fine marble (40%) . You need to calculate the mix, must stay thick as milk. After of dry the results is solid as a rock!
More Washes: Oils mixed with "Spirit-Solvent"". Oils: Light-Rust brown + Wash-brown + Olive-Green + White-Tinanium + Black-Ivory + Natural Shadow and Yellow Ochre. After of washes in the "Shurzen" was applied the mud.
Detailing: Place a pencil within each hole of damage and with black pigments on the surroundings. Brown pigment underneath the chassis mixed with " Spirit". With " Prismacolor" metallic-gray on screws and rivets, edges of hatchway, etc.
Driver's Visor: I used Shining paper for manual art. ( seemed to the paper for gifts ). Proceed to glue in both sides over a piece of styrene, a little scratch ( for use ) and to add in the armor.
Muffler: Carefully use the mr.surface 1000 of Gunze because it can raise the painting. Pigments mixed with "Spirit-Solvent", 1st. light-rust, 2nd. standard-rust and 3rd. old-rust,finally a little touch with black pigment. The auxiliary muffler will be in another tone.
Spare tracks:I used "old-rust" pigment, 2nd. step, dust of graphite and 3rd. step black pigment.
Tracks: 1.- Red hull of Tamiya 2.- I applied satin varnish of Vallejo 3.- black of Humbrol mixed with thinner enamel 4.- black graphite. After of placing it on the model, I will give it the last details.
I used my airbrush with "flat-earth" of Tamiya over the mud. Next and last step: The tracks!.
1).- Using the same mix of Mud, were applied over the tracks. 2).- Airbrushing with "flat-eart" of Tamiya and 3).- Finally I will give a final touch over them. Soon I will add pics with the Model finished, thanks for your attention!
