  1. Hello everyone, another quick update. not had much time lately to do much. So since the last update, I started on the weathering process. I first used black oil paint in the corners and shadow areas, then used burnt umber for the lighter shadows and general dirt. I added some chipping using sponge and Ammo's shadow rust colour, then added a few scratches etc. The overall finish will have a slightly sandy dusty colour which I will apply over the top of the APC but I will need to do this when I do the same on the Dozer blade so that everything matches. I applied some of the dusting to the road wheels for now and will finish off later. Here's some photo's Possibly need to do a bit more chipping around the mud guard area, I'll do that later when I start finishing everything off. That's all I'm going to do now for the APC, I need to start work on the Dozer blade. I'm going to prime that a rust colour then use hairspray and then apply Tamyia's red paint and then start the chipping process. That's all for now, thanks for looking in Ed

  9. Many thanks Bertie, I appreciate you looking in and commenting. It’s coming along slowly, too many distractions at the moment. I’ve been interested in your wooden ship building, in fact I have one in mind for next year after I’ve done the armoured car group build. all the best skipper
  10. Hello there folks, a little update on my progress so far. After the base coat I sprayed the model with a satin varnish, then proceeded doing a pin wash using Burnt Umber oil paint. I wanted to distress all the panels, so I applied small dots of oil paint, namely White, Yellow Ochre, Prussian Blue and Olive Green to small areas at a time then blended them all together. That's now the base for all the other work to follow from now on. I then added a matt varnish to seal everything and to give a good surface for all the other effects that I want to apply. Here are a few photo's So I can now continue with rust, scratches and other detail painting. I'll be back when I have more to show. all the best and as always, thanks for looking in. Ed
