Looking good so far. I have built a few of these and they are nice little kits.

They can be super-detailed as well. I added an engine to one of mine.




Keep up the good work.

The hull and cabin structures are made out of fiberglass. The plates around the caxswain area and the central gunner are thin sheet steel armor.

Data 15.10.2011 // 16.10.2011

Tecnique aging
In this stage I wear on metal parts of the boat using sandpaper (400 and 500), making this
layer of steel appears, resembling a metal worn by time and use.
applied the technique of WASH. (oil paint Black and Burnt Umber), giving an appearance of dirt.

After the effect of wear, the technique applied in the boat all WASH, always taking care to make the effect of runoff from the dirt in the right direction.
I used oil paint and Burnt Umber Mars Black (brand FINE-Lefranc). This combination gives a hint of dirt.
