Ok, the anti-slip on the horizontal surface of the hull & turret is completed. This anti-slip basically is very evident on the merkava tanks; they act as a grip for the crewmen when they move ard on the tank's surface.
This anti-slip was created using a textured paste and applied with a flat brush for the hull and a smaller brush for the turret surface.
The purplish areas in the pics are the maskol solution used to cover areas not needing the anti-slip. Rest of the areas were covered up using tape.
After the texture was dry, the maskol & tape were slowly removed.
Total time taken: 1 Sunday afternoon + night.
The purple solution is the maskol, while that on the right is the textured paste i used to create the anti-slip.
This is finally completed!!
Total time taken: 2.5 nights + 1 morning
Total sets to assemble: "lost count".... no la, about 58
