Whitewash on tamiya tiger1 (newbie)
Posted by Prostho on Tuesday, December 25, 2018 5:43 PM

Hi all,

Its been a while and I tried to improve my work with a couple of more armors. Tried whitewash on a m24 chaffee, wasnt terrible but found hairspray chipping to be a bit tricky. So its just left in a corner. With this tiger I did better so wanted to share with you.

In order: german grey,ivory,flat white. Used hairspray between these and tried to make it look like old and new layer together.

I used rust pigment and ipa for wheels and a couple of spots that needed a pinwash.

On side panels and turret rust pigment was applied by a soft makeup brush.

I shared a t34/76 here before with too much rust, so I guess this time I was able to control it a bit better.

I wellcome any suggestions to improve my work. Thank you all in advance.    Happy new year Big Smile

Looks great. I also like the rusty look of those guards on the back of the tank. Well done.
