In Singapore Blue Tac is blue in color. I think its a german product.
Same maker of UHU Glue.
lol silantra, you've set up a real hype of using this stuff for hard edge camouflage painting.
Me, rob and now tomek, who's next?
Thanks for sharing this technique!!
Thats an excellent technique you have there for doing hard edge camo!! i will have to try it. The Kt is excellent as well. Cheers Kevin
Great job! I just followed your link to the orange road crew and I busted out laughing. You’re obviously a very talented painter with one critical flaw. You’re COLORBLIND! From now on let your wife pick the colors. Trust me, it works for me. Seriously though, thanks for taking the time to post the pictures. It helps to get a visual of how it’s done. I decided to get a Pershing cause I was afraid of the paint job on the KT –This will be my first tank. Now you have me wishing I ordered the KT also. Keep up the good work.
i like the colour combination , and the pinkish red . i really do . Dont talk for historicall accuracy but aesthetically is nice ..
Great paint job man, all that time masking really paid off
Can't wait to it all weathered up
thanks once again for the kind words ....
Martin and Rob,
the masking is done with Blue Tac ... blue tac is a stationary product used for sticking something i.e. poster to the wall they can be reused again and again...but in the case of masking, the blue tac were covered with paint so I decided to throw them all....I dont know how to elaborate more...but I think they're many manafacturer round the globe that make them... for example fabercastle do make them in green ... it's not some sort of liquid masking i.e. Maskol or MrMask...
some picture of product I managed to google:
I hope someone else could explain better about the blue tac or similar product...
peel it and then roll it ...form a long roll with a diameter approx 4-6mm and then place it carefully onto the kit... slowly press the blue tac roll so that it covers every nook and crannies ... (look for the 1st photo) then I cover with masking tape as in photo no 2...
some blue tac product leave and oil residue onto the surface of the kit as happen to me... after thinking for a while, I coat the whole kit with humbrol satin coat.... this eliminated the oil residue... so in order to eliminate the oily residue, I would suggest to cover the kit with gloss or satin coat...flat coat will leave oil traces...
That is a really good king tiger, one of the best ive seen! Are you putting this in a diorama?
