Hello fellow Group Builders,

I thought I would share with you a painting update for the Crusader.

I began by giving the tracks a metallic finish - obviously I'm not too worried about overspray at this time.....

[/IMG]

And then the base colors applied very quickly. First a layer of dark grey and then uneven coverage of the desert colors...

[/IMG]

And then seal it up with a light coverage of Future....it's just something that I like to do.

[/IMG]

Next, I apply small chips using a kitchen pad and fine brush....

[/IMG]

[/IMG]


The story continues........'till next time.

Thanks for following along,
Rick

Rick,

I love this sort of SBS summary that makes everything look very easy to follow and to make, although later one needs steady hand to paint so well like you do...

Good looking Crusader. Keep us posted amigo.

Hi Rick!

Looking good so far. Once more, lovely in scale paint chips. So easy to see in picture... but what a time consuming painting stage most times it is!

Superb!

Regards!
Alvaro
