    Your work is great but the tank is downright ugly. It looks like it is something somone put together to try to armour his car. But i guess not all tanks were nice. The pontoons make it look decent.

    Gentlemen that is a tankette, not a tank apart it is more an amphibian or a floating platform with a gun on it ... nice built up Doc, but eagerly await the paint job on this ... :p

    The 2 markings are on...some anxious moments and use of Mr Mark Setter to get it to get inside vision port but it worked out perfectly. Love this stuff....

    What weathering did you put in up to now? I see streaking on the sides. Would really like to know what you do. Looking really nice.

    filter...

    Post  Dottore on Thu Jul 16, 2015 8:22 pm

    its just a bluish enamel filter Brian. As we discussed last time a filter ads depth and chromatic richness to the finish. All you need is very dilute colour (made out of enamel or oils) say 10-20% colour to thinner (or the ready made filters from AK, Wilder or AMMO which I use), and apply it over the varnished model. Preferably satin or matt varnished. Then brush has to be moist NOT soaked and avoid getting the colour collecting around details. (That would make it a pin wash). As you noted well I like to apply it in vertical strokes on the sides and in quick passes on horizontal surfaces.
    There are many good vids on you tube about this...

    This is an excellent vid...
    (the author removes filter from markings, but I think the markings really sink into the background with filter and avoid that stark white look)

    More weathering....

    Post  Dottore on Mon Aug 03, 2015 9:38 am

    More weathering in progress. Muffler has been chipped and rusted. It should have a screen mesh over most of it...kind of a pity covering it up.....slow progress much more left to do....
