I built a few cars so it's back to armor for a bit. I went sideways and raided my German stash. It's the DML Pz I DAK. Lots of weathering in this. Started with Krylon gray primer, then a Tamiya mix for the sand color, washed and weathered with oils and enamels. I had a blast painting and weathering it. 

 

I will do a small base such as the one in the photos. I plan to include a fig or two for reference.

This base belongs to the PzIII but you get the idea.

Dang, man! That's mighty impressive! The weathering is beautiful... I especially like the "rust" on the muffler guards.

Thank you gentlemen, you too Danno.

 

I tried a whole bunch of new techniques and ideas with this one. Believe it or not Harry, creating the rusty muffler guards was one of the easiest things to do .

 

Danno the lights are painted over..............................camo you know................................

Maybe so, but easy or not, the end result is just spectacular. Absolutely right and realistic.

I tried a little photo editing to reflect a period B/W shot.

Thank you Andy.

 

Here's the base. I cheated a bit and added soil from my back yard. When you live in a desert, you might as well use the right material.

Very nice build. You handled the PE like a pro. The weathering looks super realistic.

 

What is your technique on weathering? You said that you use enamel and oils but how do you apply these without dissolving the base coat?
