Fumble Recovery: The Devil Dog.

I checked the surface on the tanks and as ugly as some of it looked going on, everything dried nice and smooth..... SO.... another coat of British Armor Brown.  Then i decided on a bit more...uh.. ambitious paintscheme.  The other night I camoflaged 3 tanks in under two hours with the airbrush. Last night, thanks in part to some black bean soup the wife made, I spent 5 hours on ONE tank. The labor was more intensive, but the results are very nice. First the In Progress....
Step 1: Blotches of tan (Vallejo Iraqi Sand), then Step 2: GW Foundation Chardon Granite. Step 2 took about 4 of the 5 hours. And the 'finished" tank with some basic track colors and stowage colors blocked in. Alot of detailing and weathering to do, but I think I may try to get the other vehicles to this stage first, since the technique is still fresh in my mind.
More to come soon,
Cheers, Ya'll!

  1. Wow, nice camo work! Everything turned out great. I have that happen every now and then, something just looks like crap and then a few more brush strokes and wash, it looks great!
