    Thanks Francis Some more life added blending together some tones of SDW Shading Colors, SDW Shading Metals and SDW Rust on hull, spare tracks, bare metal parts like tank commander turret, cooling fans... To enhance a 3d effect.

    Cheers Tracks now fitted and dirted as shown in previous steps

    Tracks are simply painted with SDW Metal - Gun Metal, then drybrushed with SDW Light Metal. It's an almost new vehicle

    The whole is fixed airbrushing some well diluted Fix & Wet, contained into the Set, spreading more by brush in some spots for a wet effect.

    @FrancisGL : Structured Powders are purposely formulated resins, and not a milled mineral as pigments are. They are larger particles compared to pigments, easier to build up with a small amount. The colors you spread will have the same hue when dry (while pigments change color when they dry). But the most prominent features are that they don't need chalk powder, nor solvents. Just water. Once dry you can remove them partially or totally to adjust the amount or to achieve softer transitions. Then you fix them with their fixer. Alternative method : you directly mix them with their fixer and splotch them on to the surface

    Thank you Guys Spreading some earth dirt with Structured Powders. These are not pigments, and easier to use. Just dampen the surface with water, take some product with a brush and leave it to fall like snow.

    To counterbalance somewhat the overall warm tones of the model, pinwashes with a cold tone.

    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.
  15. 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
