Your modulation turned out great. I like the home made clay wash as well. Looks perfect.

Maybe a little streaking for fun, but make it dusty for sure!  [smile]

Thomas...Very nicely done M113.  Did you do anything special to the vinyl tracks before painting them with acrylics?  I've been told not to use enamel paints on vinyl tracks as the paint will eventually crack and peal off.  Did you seal or flat coat the tracks before you used the Prismacolor pencil?  I like the effect you received.

John, I didnt do anything special to the tracks. just painted the acrylic over and westhered them. the pencil
does flake of a little bit of the paint. But i got it very dusty and dirty so i did not care too much.



I also added some bits and pieces on the top and the interior











Thanks for looking. I just have to get the figures ready, some more bits and boxes and pepsi bottles and i am ready for the final reveal.

This is amazing work Thomas. Perfect weather and I'm still in awe about the interior. Like I said in the beginning I used to drive these baby's and what you did with the interior looks like the real thing!

Thank you very much. Nice words are good for the mojo.The "dust" is actually a selfmade clay wash. I live in North Carolina where
a lot of the soil is red clay (like vietnam). So i went down to Catawba river and got myself a Hanful clay. i first mixed it with water 2:1
and strained it with a regular kitchen strain to get the big pieces out. then i put everything into the Blender, Missus was not at home,
and blended it on high for 15 min. Claywash done. I put it in my old Airbrush and it worked.(except clogging up three times)
I am very happy with the outcome for my first armoured vehicle. So i ordered another one for this SIG. [biggrin]. Picuters coming soon.

Thomas...The completed M113 came out extremely nice.  I've never seen one built with the detailed interior.  Great job on the weathering.  Maybe you should sell your Carolina mud wash!
