Hi folks,

some of you may remember those bulky Paladin...

http://www.network54.com/Forum/110741/m ... k+2-0-+WIP

Well, it's the old kit from Italerie... and yes, I know, there's a new kit from "Riich" on the market now,,, but it was released just after I finished the building of this kit... seems this happens with every "Desert Hulk" I build!


Anyway, some two weeks ago I started with the painting...








The lower hull is more or less finished...








Now, turret!

Feel free to comment and thanks for looking.

Cheers
Volker

I'm loving that lower hull - really nicely weathered. The pre-shading on the turret looks ace too. And you don't see many Paladin models built up.

It might be the digital camera, but on the side view, it looks like the muzzle brake is canted ever so slightly downwards from the axis of the gun tube?

Volker, love the painting/weathering. I have been looking forward to an update to your original post....this kit is next on my list.

I hope you don't mind but I ran a couple of your pics through lightroom to fix the green tint:







If this is a problem I will remove them.

Hi Volker
A perfect balance between reality and how to add wear & tear on a model without cover it with pigments. So nice to see a uncommon subject like this. A masterclass.
Cheers.
