Hi Painting the Tamiya Marder III
Posted by Models32466 on Friday, December 21, 2018 12:02 PM

Hi could use some help. Going to build and paint this kit.  Just want to know if I got this right.  Gray Primer- followed by German Gray base. Then light white Wash over the whole model followed by white accents to bring out depth.

 

Sound right

Splatter, Clog, Clean Nozzle, Repeat!

Sounds good,I would a also dirty up the whitewash,nothing stays white in the field for long,especially the wheels,lower hull,and crew compartment.

Wanted to show you an example on my whitewashed Tiger

Try a gray wash or filter over the white to tone it down,Mig used to make a "Cold Gray Wash " that I liked.

If your doing white wash you could use chalk mixed with water applied thinly over the model, when dry you can scrub it off and finish it with a thin mix of brown to dirty up the model :)

 Never give up, never quit, never stop modelling.Idea
