Emhar 1/35 scale Mk.A Whippet - January 2014

Rick Bennett, Beaverton, Oregon

In the earliest days of tanks, Great Britain’s Whippet was built for speed; able to “sprint” at slightly more than 8 mph, it was, in fact, faster than its peers. Rick built Emhar’s 1/35 scale kit and painted it with Humbrol enamels. He eschewed the kit decals in favor of painting the identification strips. After sealing with Testors Dullcote, he weathered with artist’s oil washes of raw umber, yellow, and white. The groundwork is Celluclay and static grass.

    Superb, Rick! Your weathering and mud look just perfect. With the right background, this model could easily stand in for the real thing. I only wish my weathering would turn out like this.
