I built a tank

Recommended Posts

I thought I try something new. I found building this was a lot of fun and learning how to do weathering was also fun.

Looks Crusty.  Which is exactly how a tank Should look!  Well done

Very nice, building tanks is much more relaxing to me than cars since I can concentrate on the build and then paint later.

Very nice. I'm impressed. If this is your first work in this genre, I'm doubly impressed. Even the crusted mud on the tracks looks right.

Fantastic job on this one. 

What paint did you use on it ?  I've often looked at other things instead of cars or trucks but never dove into buying anything.  Might look a little harder at other stuff.

Lookin' good on that tank build. I haven't built a tank model since the 50's. I do occasionally build an airplane kit though.

Thank you everyone for the kind words!!

This is my first attempt at building a tank and weathering. I found that YouTube was the best place to see and learn new techniques. 

You do have to apply what you see and hope it turns out the way “you” want it.

I used Tamiya paints on this build.

I would like to give the weathering credit to Andy @ Andyshobby and panzermister36 these people have some great techniques on YouTube that where beyond helpful.

Your weathering looks great! You've really nailed the "Thousand and one details".

Nice! Now it just needs a simple but grungy base for display; never cared for dirty tanks on clean background!

Agree. I wish I could do a tank that well.
