    T-70 M, Miniart 1/35.

    Post  Guest on Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:14 pm

    Dear Friends,

    Attending to the Ivan Coker kind invitation to share this Forum, I will post my works.

    Now I'm painting a Miniart T-70 M, I enhanced the kit with the Eduard PE.











    Finally I decided paint it in winter white camuflage, a T-70 m from the HQ of the 8th Light Self Propelled Artillery Brigade, Byelorussia, Winter 1944.

    I start with the base 4BO Green:







    I continue with the Whitewash coat, I apply matt white enamel, and remove parcially it, before dry completely.







    For now is all, I hope you like it and I keep post the advances.

    Thanks all and Best Regards.

    Hi Joaquin, welcome to our community and what an entrance! Cool

    Great work and thanks for sharing here. How did you remove the whitewash, is it with a brush and thinner?

    Hola my friend!

    Welcome on board my Joaquin, it is an honour to have you with us, you're work, style and achievements are surely an inspiration to all of us.

    I am nothing that your whitewash technique is not the fashionable hairspray, is it done with paintbrush? It really look natural and the washed out effect is very good. Please do share your link to your website with us and also your planes ...

    Cheers mate!

    Hi my Friends,

    Thanks all for your warm welcome to your web, better our web... Very Happy

    Dottore, the Russian Green is a mix with several Tamiya Greens, Khaki, Field Green, Yellow and Black, sorry but I don't remember the exactly proportions.

    Ivan, I dont like the "fashionable" hairspray technique for the white wash, I paint the base with acrylics, and airbrushing white enamel, I wait for 15-20 minutes, and then with a brush and Humbrol Thinner, I remove partially the white, I saw a lot of real pictures and references, to do it naturally and realistic. For me is the better way to imitate it, it's the nearest to the real process.

    My Web is http://www.panzermodelling.com, now I'm updating the gallerys, and the weekend I post my model advances, you are invited.

    I only buil two airplanes, you can see it in my web: a
    He-162 and a Zero, but soon I can build another one.

    Thanks all and We keep in touch.

    The feel of the white wash is is so realistic, it gives a much better approach to the way it was really done on the field and washed away by nature ... surely my friends who are fanatic about aircraft would appreciate your new project mate! Thanks for the hint!

    Keep us posted, are you planning this Polish T70 as a diorama?

    That is one hell of a zero you built there, the paintwork is truly awesome and the weathering is next to none, easily one of the best zero's i have ever seen, looking forward to your next plane. The Salamander is also great because you have really weathered it just enough. It would not have been a beat up plane having flown just a few times at the end, and you did just that, just the perfect amount of weathering, you are a master!!

    Hi my friends,

    This weekend I continue painting the T-70M, I used artistic oil paints and pigments to simulate the dirty and weathering, still I must do a lot of work, the turret, dumps effects, etc., etc.













    Ivan, I agree with you about the weathering way, yes I planned to do a little dio woth the T-70...mmmm but it's not polish is soviet.

    Bcauchi, thanks for your words, sure I try in every model to imitate all the circumstances to avoid a vehicle or airplane, for now I'm thinking the next model I have two candidates, soon I will choose one, sure I will post here.

    I keep posting. Best Regards All.

    Ooops mixed the Birds ... Polish insignia is two headed eagle ... shame on me : (

    Coming out really realistic mate ... did you work pigments directly with oil, I had used similar aproach with pigments [as by themselves I find thenm harder to get some effects] and found that with English Turpentine I got a better result and matt finish then Linseed oil ... hmmm a vignette is planned that is gonna be something to look forward to!


    keep us tuned!
