Easy Eight Almost Done

Thanks to a usual wet bank holiday weekend here in the UK I've almost finished off the Sherman. The model received a couple of filters using Mig neutral filter then a dark pin wash mixed up from oil paints. After that some oil dot fading finished up the weathering adding some nice streaks and stains. 

Once the mat varnish was on and had dried for a day final assembly could commence, here all the lights and periscope lenses were added. Pigments have been added sparingly as I want a slightly cleaner look for this model. Just a little bit more work on the pigments and adding some fuel spills needs to be done I think. Again this will be placed on a small simple base with a suitable figure from Alpine miniatures (which is on the way).

  1. I do like your stuff Pete - it's nice to see a simple clean effective paint scheme instead of the over weathered models that seem to be all the rage!

  2. Thanks Simon I'm glad you like it. Sometimes it can be a refreshing change just to add the bare minimum of weathering to a kit.
