I have an M60 patton tank with reactive armour, which I assembled and painted in green about 17 years ago. After all these years I decided that I wanted this tank painted in desert colours, and also wanted to give it more weathering than the initial paint job, since it had almost no weathering and the little it had was badly done. Now this is my first attempt ever to weather a tank and I know I won't be any near the perfect weathering, but I will try and hopefully have some comments and maybe a little help from you all so that I can improve my weathering before moving on to the next build.
Since I repainted on an already badly done paintjob, I didn't expect the finish of the repaint to be perfect, so I decided to give this tank some heavy weathering to disguise the bad paintjob, though I am now looking at it and I think I might have gone a little too heavy.
The weathering is still in progress so I will post the photos of the job done so far.
Repainted with sand colours
Added some paint chipping, paint wearing and scratching (initial pass)
Started the rusting and dirt weathering
I'm leaving the reactive armour for last, but I still have more places to weather, and then repass all the weathering for any imperfections or unwanted brush stroked.
Kindly advise if I'm going on too heavy with weathering.
Thanks for your time
