Good to hear your better Steve, nice job on the White washing are you going to keep it white or wear it a bit?

Thank's guy's,got a lot of weathering to do to get the effect I want especially on the  side armour plate I might cut a piece out and certainly need's

a few "ding's"  to make it look worn,sadly my Mother in law passed away today so priorities have changed for the moment.

Hi folk's,had a quiet hour at the bench tonight so started the weathering process still a bit to do but the basic's are there.

I dry brushed dark yellow to start with then put a dark wash into the detailing for the first stage.

Hi Steve,

 

This build is looking great! I must up my game and look to building a base one of these days

 

Sorry for your loss. Hope the modelling helps to take your mind of things.

 

Cheers
