Hello,

let me first introduce myself. I am Jörg and have built armor models since I was a little boy.
I came back to the hobby like two years ago after a break of almost 10 years.
Most of the models that I started in the last two years are not fully finished yet (must be some kind of disease).
Encouraged by Stefan Bernets great "Halbe Tiger" diorama I decided to post some wip photos of one of my last projects.
This is the DML kit 6397 almost right ootb. I wanted to reproduce a late war hard edge 3 tone camo pattern and decided to try the masking with plasticine for children.
I just used acrylics from Vallejo and Tamyia and removed the plasticine almost immediatly after spraying (masking, airbrushing and removing took me like 4 hours).
I am not 100% happy with the result but I think it is ok for the first try with this technique.
There is still alot of work to be done with this model and I am going to put it into a small diorama aswell (maybe located in Hungary 1945).
Please excuse the bad photos.

Very good idea from plasticine , painting looks very good. still a bit of dust and rust stains in some places. A bit of polished steel on tracks and can give the model will look like a real ...........

And thank you very much for the pics. I've been trying to find a visual reference for using putty while masking camoflage and your pictures illustrate the process perfectly.

Nice work and thanks again.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi Joerg

the masking worked out very good. Looks as clean as the best results I have seen with blue tack.

Keep us posted.

Cheers

Stefan
