More steps! .... I see the end!!!!!

Washes ... they always help to increase the perception of the details of the kit. 1/48 kits are not as accurate as 1/35 counterparts. And if there were the same quantity of aftermarkets available for the quarter scale, they´d be more difficult to place that in the bigger scale. 1/35 PE sets are a nightmare by them self so, in 1/48, for not very skilled modellers like me, are just a Chimera. So, in my case, I have to hide this with the paint, showing as much as possible the details available in the kit and bring them to life.

Before the washes, I applied a pair of solid coats of Tamiya´s clear, the perfect base for washes as it facilitates the washes tu run easily in around the kits details

For this task, as in the previous steps, I used Tamiya Panel Line Accent color mixed with KX 52 Flat Earth, using Tamiya´s thinner (blue cap) to keep the mix fluid and easy to handle.

Oils . Modellers´s best friend without a doubt!. Easy to handle, slow dry, excellent blur just perfect! Using different oil colours, Naples Yellow, Van Dyke Brown, natural umber, blue, white, red . And using the well-know technique of dots I faded the grey color trying to reduce the contrast of the different shades of the grey and hiding a little bit the chipping aggressive effect of previous steps.

After this step, I´m ready for the real heavy weathering with dust and dirt.

Thanks for looking, sorry if I´m boring you with so many post and as usually, any opinion, suggestions or criticism will be highly apreciated!

JL,

The Tiger is getting weight on every step and now it looks really heavy metal. The most I am enjoying of this Gb is the wide variety of techniques, styles and finishes all very remarkable to me. that proves modelling is a hobby open to endless interpretations which is a really good thing, in my opinion.

Looking forward to seeing your next step amigo.
Lu

PS: Still too much wore-off paint to my taste.

I've been following your development of this most interesting and effective technique. I'm sure that I along with many others will begin to incorporate some of these methods.

Best regards,
Rick

Hi Jose Luis!

To read that you are now "starting" the wheatering sounds like a joke! Yeah, I know, I know... you mean that the previous painwork was -just- the base colour.

In one word. Mindblowing!

Regards!
