Total inspiration. I am planning some PE AM sets for my next build, a tank.  I would like to come on par with your work here, but I doubt I can reach that goal. you have the bar pretty high all round!

Hi guys
Went a bit silent, but hope to redeem my name with this "short" update :-)
It's time to start next chapter of my build - painting. For starters - interior. Here is an example of my reference BTR shoots - have a look.
[BTR-70+Interior] 

After finishing my build treated all parts with soapy warm water and wash all dust off. Next - drying and moving to painting station.
[DSC06212] 

Interior will be prepared with Grey primer from Vallejo, for this task my weapon of choice is Iwata HP-M2
[DSC06213] 

Firstly decided to cover all edges - it will provide clean surface when glue both parts of main hull.
[DSC06214] 

After an hour and 5 layers of thinned primer I achieved nice and unified surface.
[DSC06215] 

Next - quick change of AB, this time my best friend Iwata HP-BH, which is used for all colours. Preshading with Black Grey took  just a few moments - this is a very easy and will give so much later on.
 
[DSC06218] 

[DSC06219] 

In a meantime my parcel from Czech finally arrive - here is an direct comparison between wheels -  Grey ones are from Def. Models, middle one are E.T. Models (which turned bad - read previous post) and black ones are original from Trumpeter (no sag).
[DSC06221] 

Have to say that probably E.T. Models (grey version) are by far the best looking one - details are very crisp and there was no gluing - tire with rim comes as a one piece)
[DSC06220] 

Anyway - couldn't stop myself and prepared whole set for priming.
[DSC06222] 

But this time used my new Vellejo primer - Russian Green, which will be used for exterior. Beside 8 main wheels Def. Models supplied the kit with additional 9th one as an spare wheel (it will be placed on top of my BTR), this is a very fine addition (not to mention I receive mask seal).
[DSC06223] 

And after some drying time, sprayed tires - here they are... (rims still have to be painted with correct green - working on them right now)
[DSC06650] 

Next step was about establishing which colours are best for my interior. Elaborate process - but well worthy - here working with blue, and testing samples vs printout.
[DSC06227] 

Anyway - started with base colour which was an mix of white and sand.
[DSC06224] 

[DSC06225] 

Then decided to mask everything beside floor - looks complicated but it's fairly easy took maybe 1.5h and it was a great fun!
[image] 

Then sprayed it with Chipping Effect and dried it - next 043 from Vallejo + some modulation with 015 and 012. 
[DSC06422] 

Next applied water with a short brush and started to scratch... first tested engine bay (which will be completely cover and not visible at all), found out that scratching have to be preformed with a very little force, otherwise there is a good chance to rip out a great chunk of paints and once.....)

  

[DSC06423b] 

[DSC06424b] 

[DSC06425b] 

[DSC06426b] 

Conclusions are - next time will wait bit longer, so main layer of paint settle a bit harder... had a feeling that I've rushed a bit thats why some of chips are way too large (hope to cover it somehow with further effects). Next day had a chance to spray mat varnish and photograph my interior with an natural light. To my surprise colour change from green to brown... which is not bad, but not expected.
[DSC06427] 

[DSC06428] 

Next step - another layer of masking, this time will concentrate over seats, bench and dashboard.
[DSC06487] 

[DSC06488] 

And here is an glimpse of my work...
[DSC06537] 

And after further work with filters, oils, washes, petrol stains etc :-)
[DSC06539] 

[DSC06540] 

[DSC06538] 

[DSC06542] 

Next day - final stage with remaining elements, this time, metal boxes and other stuff. First - masking :-)
[DSC06649] 

Then, metal paint all over the surfaces and drying with dryer.
[DSC06651] 

The weathering process is repeated - colour, then chipping, then main colour and water application = chips.
[DSC06652] 

Some touch-ups here and there...
[DSC06653b] 

And here we are... nearly finished interior :-)
[DSC06656] 

[DSC06664] 

[DSC06654] 

[DSC06654b] 

[DSC06655] 

[DSC06655b] 

[DSC06657] 

[DSC06663] 

[DSC06662] 

Ok - so thats enough for now. Still need to mat varnish entire interior, next step are pigments, and then additional items... have plan to place few every-day objects like maps, newspaper, bottles, maybe propaganda poster... hope to surprise you all :-)

thanks for watching and please join the discussion :-)

cheers
Christian

Wow, that is a primer on doing the paint work, chipping, masking. I definitely see now why you changed the tires/wheels out. much better choice. Your interior is a great reflection of the photos you gathered. those vehicles really get the rough treatment! excellent work and documentation.NP with the "delay" on updates---life does that to us.

Hi Guys
Tonight had a special "teaser" session :-) Loads of elements are still in development (they will be painted, weathered etc). Unfortunately not feeling well (lover back pain) and can't sit too long (doctors suggest exercises) so not sure when I've manage next update. Anyway, enough of my talk - enjoy those shoots...
