    More blending for a graded effect is also added to the large soldered areas of hull and turret. An here we are now

    Thank you Guys @ Simon : oh….what a surprise… Subtle streaks added on sloped sides. Somewhat like the oil-dot technique, but on smaller areas, because although these paints dry slower than acrylics, they are faster than oils. For the blending I used a water-wet brush, this way the gradations have a sharper streaked effect.

    The same paints are used for subtle drybrushing, further altering the Whole

    Some steps ahead compared to so cal acrylics. P.ex. because they're really water-only paints, or because they're also blendable.

    Now it's time to differentiate some areas, applying different methods : - directly covering the base paint of engine plate, mufflers… with thin coats of altered tones. - altering some spots thorugh a wet on dry blending of other tones over the base paint - blending wet on wet different tones Therefore, the same paint used for painting, takes place of oils into the weathering process.

    Thank you Soeren Now a very light coat of some different mixes of minium. And metal on some smaller parts. This model should represent a what if panther, hurried up to the battlefield directly from the building plant.

    Wheel hidden sides are now painted with a thin layer of minium Now the whole wheel assembly is turned turtle, and the outer sides are primed with Chromatic Primer, together with hull.
  8. Hi all Sirs, here my latest cat in progress. An old 1/35 Dragon reference built from the box, so let's go straight to painting. At first, a dark priming to all inner wheels side and hull spots

    Hi Guys, and thank you for resurrecting this old topic @Ripaman : did you see the P & W free course ?

    Thank you much Guys. Some more pics. This kit availed me to win a master gold prize at the Italeri event in Bologna. (being awarded by the commander of 6th Squadron of Ghedi, flying on tornado planes, is not a daily business...)

    The very last effect is some oil leaks from the engine. Given the need for subtlety, a filter & wash, black tone, was used.

    The last "shape enhance" actions are made with cold ageing filter, subtle touches into some recesses and wing joints

    The thickened light grey mix is spread and feathered over gun bulges, radiator edges and so on to add shape. And thin touches of the samre paint to subtlely simulate scratches.

    The light grey mix instead, is used to mark some detail edges, thus adding to shape.
