    SU 122 - Leningrad another White camo

    Post  iCocker on Tue Aug 18, 2009 6:59 pm

    Another old project, a different snow camo approach, this one with airbrush and just filters, oil paints, chipping and sponge painting ... the vehicle represent a unit that saw action during the Siege of Leningrad, from the existing foto all the vehicles of this unit had this goudy camo, that looked like birch twigs on a white field. The red circle is an air recognition for soviet jabos.

    Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww, Ivan Exclamation Smile

    This was and still is an excellent model (like all your models) the paint and weathering are extraordinarily realistic. Laughing

    The detail, chipping and corect me if I'm wrong rust are excellent. cheers

    Seeing this makes more enthusiastic to build an AFV. Wink

    I sure agree, a great inspiration, fantasic job all the way. Now was the rear of the tank done
    with those mig pigments?, if so do you apply them on wet?
    I've never used them, so i'm curious how they work.

    Thank you guys ... William hope one I see a tank from you, it is a great model to apply some weathering!

    Luftiger, MIG pigments are so versatile, to acheive mud you just need a selection of pigments so that you can create a texture and hue of dry to wet mud. Just apply acrylic gel [available from MIG] or white glue, polifiller, some static grass and some snad and stones ... just mix together and voila you'll be applying mud over your tank.

    If you need to create fresh mud which shall be darker and wet, just choose a darker pigment, same mix but would avoid stones and grit as fresh mud is more liquidy and just add acrylic gloss varnish ...

    Just one tip apply dry mud to the bottom and fresh on top to achieve a more natural effect ...

    I highly recommend MIG pigments for their range and quality of pigments, I have used pastels and CMK poders but they are not a comparison with these pigments ...

    Try them out ...

    Thank you guys and PROSIT tancred nice military look, though the background green is a little harsh, might till my eyes adjust again ... what might in the future change is the top banner - qed jistona ftit ma din l-ischeme ...

    As for a future sbs ... that might be but for the time being I am a little pressed for fotoshoots and all my projects are in an advanced stage.

    Ray surely will not beat you in the posts, I have a to be out of the forum next week to have my family's holiday ... but how can I stay without browsing in!
    Yep I agree this forum is addictive ...
