okay, folks, I am done with the build stage :) It was a lot of putty and sanding around the cabin roof...



A poster with a girl adds a nice touch to the model :) And the black thing under the engine is scratch from yogurt plastic. The one in the kit was incorrect.



Well, even more - I managed to start pre-shading! Want to do smth interesting with that one and hope not to fail :) Time is running out....

I am glad you like the article, thanks! I still haven't got my copy... seems to be delivered by a real snail mail.

What I like about SMA is that you always have a possibility to learn something from great people here. A couple of weeks ago TRM started his tutorial series and that inspired me regarding what to do with my truck. No, I am not going to wreck it, but I did some multilayer chipping with the help of his tutorials, with only difference that I changed the order of paints.
Was that a good experience - definitely YES, does it look good - you decide :)



My intention was to show a truck that has a bit rust and was repainted once the pain was completely faded.

A bit more worn paint, painted the tires and did a Dark wash. Looks OK so far.

Transfered decals and going to do start the weathering.
For the license plates I read the information about numbers in post war Germany and then took a set of Alliance Model Works license plates.




The multilayer chipping looks interesting but I will add more rusty stuff later as well as scratches.

time to mess with pigments. These were just dropped on the model and then fixed with enamel thinner. After drying I removed excess with a clean brush (On the front tires they are still wet and I need to correct them on the inner surface of road wheels, but you get the feeling anyway). The tracks would be there soon ;)
If you need a brand - that's combination of Vallejo and MIG.

WOW! Talk about a weathering job!

Really great work, I'm really impressed by your quality model!
Now all it needs is a nice base ;D
