Details of tools, wheels and tracks!. I will retouch 1 tool. Next step: Coat of Satin Varnish of Vallejo and Decals. I do not recommend using matt varnish because it can whiten the model. Using the satin varnish is better because the washes "runs" for better down or where you want the filters

Very nice technique Rodolfo,looks like your absence from the bench has not had too much affect on your skills,which is encouraging for me as I have been away for over a year due to my housing situation. Looks good,interesting paint scheme, I never saw an all green tiger,what unit,what theater,looks cool ?

Thanks for your kind comments Anthony!. the green tanks were from the 1 - Schwer Panzer - Abteilung 501 in Afrika; I commeted a mistake because I added the front support for tracks, now is impossible to remove, this will be a "monument" for my inactivity and lack of attention

NOTE: Sorry, I forgot to remove the front support for tracks, remove now is to destroy the front and re-start again, I prefer to use adding the tracks..

I proceeded to make a light wash with "matt trainer yellow" Humbrol #24 thinned with Enamel Thinner of Humbrol. As you see, the colour has been changed satisfactorily to the color I was looking for.. Next step: Weathering.

I applied a ligth weathering with solvent spirit and oils with yellow naples. Next step: working the tracks and after I will outline or retouch with pigments and final weathering with airbrush.

I finally have returned from my traveling and have a few minutes to get back to my build.

I've added some of the roadwheels and applied my camo pattern. I'm doing a Southern Russia scheme with only a green pattern. It doesn't represent any actual vehicle.




I've also assembled the individual track links into sections and they are ready for painting.

Found time to do a little more work. The tracks have been painted and installed.





Will add the tools and some light weathering when I get back from my trip.

Finished the panther tonight also.

The Tiger build goes together way better than the Panther. The Panther tracks are horrible. Also for whatever reason the Tiger and the Panther are a different scale from each other.

Okay I have my main colors shot but I am at a crossroad and wondering if i could maybe get some input from others. This will be my first attempt at a "Ambush" pattern. I like how it sits now, but I ant to learn the ambush pattern look and need to start some time. So before I ruin the model, could I get some feedback on the look?

I have posted two swatches and I am trying to figure which one to do.

I am wondering if you guys would give feedback as to which you would go with please.
