Here's a teaser from the base paint phase of the Panzer I.

The palm tree marking is sprayed on using a really neat set of stencils I got for Christmas. This stencil is about half the size of a postage stamp. I used Tamiya Flat White and my Badger Renegade Velocity. It took longer to mask and mix the paint than it did to actually spray the marking.

Joe, I'll spray the thing with a mix of Tamiya Buff, Deck Tan and F/White. I'll go back and scrub the finish with a old brush creating chips and worn paint. After that a wash of tan enamel mixed with a dab of  burnt umber oil in all the nooks and crannies. I go light with the wash and pinwash as to not make the thing too dark. Sunbleached and worn is the effect I'm going for. When all that is pretty dry I'll used tiny dabs of oil paints to accent hatches and high wear areas. Tracks get a dark dirty brown base followed by layers of red brown/rust colored washes. I'll finish them with a drybrush of MM Enamel "Jet Exhaust" as that color looks just like a sand burnished track in the desert.

 

This is the look I'm after.

It takes longer to describe than to do! ;)

Wayne:Now that's an in depth weathering tutorial there! I remember seeing something like that on a Vallejo dvd that I have here at the house. I've watched it about 3 or 4 times just for retention sake. You've added a couple of things that aint on that video though. Thanks for sharing that info and look forward to seeing it in action.

 

Jason:Wow! Thats a high parts count from what I can see! I've got a couple of those crushed boxes but contents ok kits too. lol

Ok fellas I'm going to kick this thing off with a little recap of this kit. I had already started this kit last November but put it on freeze for another GB thats going on elsewhere and then again for this GB. Here's where it all started. My Tamiya Fw190 D-9 fuselage halves laid out together before any cutting took place:

and after carving the front of the plane from the fuselage and the tail fin access panel from the tail:

 

TamiyaFw190D9fuselagecutup_zps8325ff7e.j

 

This'll be the update that I'll be using for this beauty:
