The stryker's completed, BUT...pics are not ready yet. Let me share some of the in-progress shots first... The stages of weathering...
- Raw umber filter with oil paints. To tone down the over shade as well as begin the worn out look.
- Pin wash with raw umber around the rivets & recesses to add contrast to the smaller details as well as create depth.
- Subtle chipping around the frequently walked areas like hatches, edges. A darker shade of the base color was used.
- Dry brush of the raised details.
- Apply grey/brown filter from MIG Productions. To "sink" the washes and paint chips into the base color.
- Apply pigments+thinner over the chasis to create the muddy look. A darker earth color was used followed by lighter sand pigments to create the tonal variation of the mud & sand.
- Pigments + sand wash over the tires to create the dusty look.
- Pigments applied over the 0.5 MG
- Application of the sand pigments over entire model, concentrating mainly on the lower hull.
- Application of soot pigments over the muzzle & engine grille.
And lastly...My antennas mounted on...
