Hi all,

Lately I've been into big rig models, but my primary interest over the past 15 years or so has been armor and other military vehicles. Here are a few of my armor builds I've done over the past few years:

Very nice builds!

Yes they are "gate guard" clean, but hey who says they have to be dirty?

:D

I love the PzIII on the flatcar.

Thanks guys

The art of weathering is a difficult one to master... I usually weather the tracks slightly but leave the rest clean. My first attempt at weathering a full vehicle was the whitewahed Stug III at the bottom of my post. I used a whitewash method I saw in a magazine once - a coat of chalk powder mixed with water applied over the base coat. Then I used a stiff brush to wear off some of the whitewash (I probably took too much of it off though). I clearcoated to protect the whitewash then sprayed a light coat of brown on the lower hull to simulate mud. I was trying to depict a muddy vehicle in the spring where the winter whitewash was partly worn off.

The vehicles in my post from top to bottom are:

M1A2

Tiger

Panzer III

Panther

M26 Pershing

M4A3 E8 Sherman (Canadian Army, Korean war)

Sherman V Firefly (Canadian Army, WWII)

M923 and M35 trucks

T-34

Stug III

You have good solid armor builds there. Your painting is exemplary, but you should at least try a pin wash on the next one. It really brings out the detail and isn't hard to do.
