I like the way you've broken up the paint. Great details, tools, exhaust, lovely model.

Cheers,

Ernst.

I do love the look of the Valentine and you have done a lovely job of this one. Very nicely modelled and well presented.

Brilliant job. What made you change the tracks? I thought Tamiya's link and length ones were pretty good?

They're fine for what they are, but I really enjoy metal tracks. Plus, with the way this model is engineered, it's just about impossible to get the tracks on once the fenders are in place unless you keep them in multiple parts (and then you're trying to assemble and glue painted & weathered tracks on a painted & weathered tank).

Excellent Valentine, superb paint and weathering, particularly like the worn patina on the paintwork.

:goodjob:

Lovely job, love the way you have created a worn effect. How did you do that?

 

Best

Fantastic job on the finish & weathering. The tools look like they've just come from B & Q & have been shrunk!

Thanks mate!

 

It’s essentially the hairspray technique used for chipping, only in this case it isn’t representing chipped paint in the normal sense, but instead it’s meant to simulate worn and distressed paint.

I just watched a YouTube video by Night Shift showing a similar effect on 1/72 T-90. I'm going to have to try that.

It all looks fantastic, but I'll single out one tiny part, that spade looks amazing.  It is not often that tools look convincing on models but these certainly do.

You definitely should! It's a fun technique that gives such an interesting result and it especially helps with things painted in a single color by making it way more interesting.
