Very simple. The paint is sprayed on with an airbrush, the smears are done with the wipers. I just put the wipers in place without gluing them in, and ran them on the windshield, like they normally would. And since the wiper blades werent ideally flat, they created this effect.

Glad you like it.
Cheers



Great work and congrats! and thanks a bunch for sharing the tip!

Great job, Grzegorz!. The weathering really looks great.

The only thing that struck was that the ring sight and the angle of the guns are not aligned. The gunner would be sighting near horizontally, but the guns are pointing upwards.
The gun barrels themselves seem bend slightly and not aligned, but that could be the camera angle.

Anyway, a great model with very nice details in the engine compartment and on the wind screen as already mentioned by others as well.

Well deserved first place!

Very well, done!
Congratulations!!

What struck me most with this build, is the way the dirt on the windows is done. Especially the smears where the wipers are worn or have gotten dirty. How did you do that???

Very very nice colours in the engine, really looks like you did some careful research somewhere in an old truck. Most modern car engine compartments look like you could at your dinner from them.

At least you didn't have to go far to research into what snow looks like though - assuming you built it this winter that it is!

Hi guys!
Thank you very much for all the votes and comments.

Jeff that`s a Trumpeter kit, my first kit from them but definitely not last one. Nice fit and detail, would recommend to anyone.

I assume you`re asking me what part of UK I`m from. I used to live in Essex but have recently moved to Dorset but dont let my name fool you. I`m Polish just currently residing in UK.

Cheers
