TAMIYA MATILDA "RUBBLE CAMO"

Recommended Posts

I must say you have about 10,000% more patience than I do. Not too sure about the sanity quotient though.

 

All kidding aside it does look good, unique and a definite eye-opener. Keep it up, the turret is just a little project now.

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd

Morning all..........my apologies. I've not been able to keep up with everyone's build blogs and comment. But I'll get back up to speed the next few days. The Matilda I managed to get the rest of the "rubble" camo' done last week.....but just wasn't in a position to post.....so here we go. I have a couple of repairs to do.....re-attach the rear lights (broke off in camo' painting:bangin:).....and a slight repair on a line of camo on the turret where I attempted to apply the red triangle decals supplied by Tamiya, only to find out they don't really fit. The micro soll attacked the camo....so touch up required at the end prior to weathering, filters etc.T0PyM8E.jpg

I might switch tack a little this week and get back on another build....been painting a lot lately and need to get some building in......:nod:

 

chat later......:yes:

That looks excellent Simon. When It's finished, you'll need to do a Tilly in the same cammo to keep it company.

Thanks Chaps...........trying to get it done.....managed a filter last night and some feint wash. Going to do chipping and wear as the next step. Big problem is the shape definition as the "Rubble" camo' is really effective in hiding it's form........:smirk:. I also have a few parts still to add and maybe some stowage and "stuff".

 

As regards a "Tilly" John......I have a self imposed ban on new kit purchase's as i have a mountain in my stash I need to move on to in time......although I did break on a picking up an Opel Blitz by Tamiya the other day....but is was a bargain at 2/3's the price with shipping....couldn't resist. I needed something though to take the rocket launchers I got for the Zugkraftwagen that i didn't use in the end.....if I see a "Tilly" going cheap, I might try one in rubble camo.

 

Thanks again ......:yes:

Afternoon all....had to have a break from the Elephant.....so switched over back to the Matilda for a break. Started the weathering and chipping part. I need to get my hands on some oil filters and try them out on this one as I have to lighten some surfaces here and there......

 

cheers all.....:yes:

Really nice result Simon.  The chipping and grime already tone the camo down a bit. The base colour modulation is wtill somewhat visible. I am sure you would lose it with an overall filter. Maybe you can try to modulate the green, a very thin oil paint or some focused work with a small brush could help there?

Hi Soeren.......cheers mate

 

I splashed a load of AK301 Dark Wash for Wood Decks, part of their Naval range. It's a new method I'm developing. I covered the whole tank liberally. Left t for abut 2 mins and then started to rub it off with dampened cotton wool buds. Rubbing it off the raised points etc. What i discovered is that you start to actually get real "wear and tear"......still working on it overall as a new technique for me anyway.

Then I went ahead and did the usual two colour chipping on areas of real wear from the rubbing down. In places I started to use the Mr Color Thinner 400. This lifts anything....(great as a general brush cleaner)........then a little pigments in cracks and crevices.

 

I want to try some oils as I've never used them before.....

 

Cheers

Excellent build Simon. Makes a nice change to see a finish other than desert cammo.

Thanks for that guy's.........actually John, I just couldn't face the problems in doing the Caunter camo........way to many up and down features on the Matilda...:D.

 

Thanks Filippo.....excuse my ignorance.....what would a Beaufort be?....I'm not that knowledgeable on Allied AFV's.

 

Redcoat.....:yes:

Ah......I understand......yes, I know the picture. Aircraft aren’t my thing Phil, although I am tempted to look at a Typhoon maybe one day.
