Thx Guys
I have just started to apply some weathering, this is my first attempt.
The next photo's i take will be outside as the models look much better in natural light, My small office/workroom is quite dank

Don't be afraid to weather it! Weathering is your friend! Just start subtly at first and work your way through it.

Long ago I used to hate weathering my kits. I thought the "clean" look was just the best you could get. As time has gone by (and many model competitions)I have learned that weathering just adds that extra level of realism to make your kits look life-like, used, and just as they typically do in real life. Tanks are loud, dirty, mud soaked machines of war. They are not some cutesy Manga mech with always fresh paint and never a scratch.

So dive in and take a chance. As long as dumping an entire bottle of wash all over your kit doesn't happen you will be fine.

By the way, that IS a nice camo job. 1/48th Tamiya King Tiger B Henschel (production), right? I'm working on the Porsche version myself.  [smile]

Gotta love the new 1/48th line.

Its 1/35th ? I thought it was the 1/48th scale kit! No wonder yours looks better than mine! LOL!!

What did you use for the mud? I must know.

LOL ye 1/48 is a bit small for my eyes and hands, For the mud i diluted some pva with water,brushed it where i wanted and dabbed on some pastel dust,worked a treat and cost practically zilch, my next armour build will have bullet holes !!

Pastels?! I have a bunch of those lying around. Why didn't I think of that??

Bullet holes! lol Awesome! I want to see that. I have an old Italeri King Tiger in 1/72 that I'm going to make into a burned up hulk in a ditch when I find some time for it.  [smile]  Bullet holes!
