    Chipping complete....

    Post  Dottore on Sun Sep 12, 2010 2:02 am

    I went for a heavily beaten/chipped tank...I reckoned since there is a large engine deck which will be mostly exposed I wanted to avoid a monotonous appearance. Also the engine deck area is full of hatches which i reckoned would cause paint to chip...
    Now for some rain streaking (mostly on the turret) and some dusting (mostly on horizontal areas)...
    All comments welcome as always...

    Looking very good, that chipping managed to give life to a single color.

    Nice work on the chips they look realistic, but apart from dusting and to match the chips I would put in some more paint fading in the form of filters or more washes to add more interest as it is still looking flat.

    I agree 100% with Tancred, you need some more contrast and if there is stuff to add, what the hell are you waiting for. I am dead slow but you are becoming a good contender.

    Personally I feel that engine deck should be left bare from implements, it's so nice an area that cries out for a display of weathering effects! The implements would obscure such a canvas and distract ... IMHO! I told you this million times but seems you are in love with boxes and canvas rolls! It is going into a painting section, and let the viewer and judge see your work!

    Single colour can be monotone but on the other hand they are a gift for effects ... isma minni take my advice!

    i tend to agree with ivan here. to much stowage would cover up most of the work you have done. it would be a pity.

    Whilst I like a tank that is bursting with equipment, boxes, etc... when they are displayed as part of a diorama, but that is just my opinion. I have to agree with alex and Ivan,sometimes the less the better.

    Great looking tank, well done. Weathering is nice. One thing, as someone already stated, are the boxes, etc secured to the tank? otherwise they do give the tank some life.
