Both looking good Darryl, especially the Cromwell. Once you have the matt coat on, you could try some of Mig's Allied Green Fading pigment. It does lighten up areas.

 

John.

That's a new one on me, faded green pigment, I'll perhaps have to look into that.

 

Want to go for the dry, dusty look rather than wet and muddy.

 

Cheers.

Thanks Richard, kind of you to say so.

 

Work proceeding at snail pace at present, hope to have the Cromwell weathered and

Sherman painted by end of weekend.

This last weeks progress. Cromwell, initial weathering done.spacer.png

 

Had planned on the dry dusty look....

Tried a new (to me) product, Ammo/Mig washable dust, perhaps got carried away.

Rather than dry and dusty looks more like driven through a river and left to dry!

Really shouldn't experiment on a kit in progress...

After a day or two it started to grow on me.

 

However after a coat of matt...

The washable dust has toned down quite considerably. 

Perhaps add a few chips, and scuffs etc and time to add tracks, tools, stowage etc etc.

 

Firefly has been painted and awaits a gloss coat prior to decals etc.

Now with highlights..

Highlight colour will work well as basis for chips, scuffs and scratches.

Next job gloss coat and decals.

 

Thanks for looking.

They both look good Darryl. The matt coat certainly reduced the overall effect of the dust wash. Looks good.

They both look cracking, the dust effects look good especially after the matt coat.

Thanks chaps, the Ammo/mig dust needs a bit more experimentation yet but I'll save that for another time. 

I was quite surprised myself in the change after its matt coat.

 

I've added a few chips and some graphite from a pencil around the exposed edges but I think I'll crack on with tracks, stowage etc before I do something silly with it.

 

Could just be me but it reaches a point with a kit, if I'm happy with it, i don't want to push my luck by playing around with it anymore!

 

The Firefly hasn't has much of a look in since painted at the weekend and is still waiting its gloss coat.

 

Thanks once again for looking and taking the time to comment.

 

Much appreciated 

Darryl

Thanks Simon, must confess the dust wash was probably luck as much as anything else, I'll keep tinkering with the stuff but it has potential, should really experiment on something that's not nearly finished!

 

Really want to get this one finished now.

Thanks Nikolay, I'm enjoying playing around with the paint modulation and weathering at present, just seems to be working for me.  

 

Must confess, if it hadn't been for Britmodeller and spending hours looking at other people's builds I'd probably still be brush painting them in a straight Humbrol 30 green!

 

Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment.

Much appreciated
