STEEL PANTHER IN THE SNOW, PANTHER A 1/35 ITALERI

Recommended Posts

Hi Pals, I think I can finish this upgrade / "face wash" of this model.

 

It has not been, let's say, very aggressive, because there is no metal element on it, of each and every one that can be added, only empty shells on top, although they are not attached.

The fear to ruin the kit, has been able this time more, because the plastic is not too good (if to that we add the time that I have since it was built in the factory).

 

Still, the products used to add, more than to simulate as before, the weathering, I think they have fulfilled their function.

I would like to put it on a base, and add some figure, but for now, I can not, for lack of technique and space, maybe later ...

 

Thanks for the comments about how to improve the finish. IHMO, I think it has deserved the effort, more than anything to see if at this time, I improved my technique somewhat, maybe, although I still have to continue persevering ...

 

Thanks as usual for watch and comment, cheers mates :D

Hi Francis! Well that certainly was very worth your efforts and skills! It has turned out beautifully! You have created a very effectively winter weathered Panther. Very impressive! Well done. :worthy:

Kind regards,

Stix

Many thanks for your follow, like and kind words, i´m glad you like it, your Panzer III, is even better than my kit, but without a doubt, it is a good starting point to improve. I got a bottle of the product that you used for the snow (Vallejo), although I think you used it better ...

Cheers Stix :yes:

Many thanks for your kind words, and and last but not least, your time to watch and comment, i'm glad you like it,

 

The mud, really, is not such, I mean, at the lateral end edges, if there is something darker, than if it is from a jar of Mig Mud, but the other lighter color, it is powder pigments, obviously, fixed with the product of Mig also for that purpose, that once dry, another layer is applied on top, until the desired volume is obtained, and the color also, because according to what is needed, it can be combined.
I hope it is what you need, and sorry for the delay in answering.

Cheers mate :yes:

Hi, Francis. 

 

Thank you for the reply. I am intending to build the Hobbyboss 1/16th Tiger 1 sometime soon (in this lifetime?) and I want the tracks and lower hull to be covered in fresh mud, so your information should be very useful in the build. 

 

Cheers.

 

Chris.
