Not much update on this build…I’ve been too busy with a bunch of more important work stuffs…but anyway, here’s a small updates😀
The picture above is a step called “Pre-dusting”. Basically, I wanna create a dusty war machine for this one. Dust is best created using a pastel ink/pigment ink (Tamiya Weathering Master for example). Since the base color of the tank is gray, pre-dusting it with a brown color is important (I use Tamiya Flat Earth for the brown). Why it is important? it’s to cover the gray area using less pigment ink. Pigment ink is a powder, so we’re gonna need a lot of pigment ink if we wanna cover the gray area without a pre-dusting it. Since pigment ink is hard to find and expensive (at least here), I wanna use it as efficient as possible.
I’ve already paint all the tools in the tank, as well as the load carried by the tank
Next, is the decal
This is my first time using “Mr. Mark Setter” before applying the decals. Mr. Mark Setter function like a glue for decals. The good thing about using it is that it makes the decals blend nicely to the surface (making it looks like paint if applied correctly :D). The bad thing is that once you placed it, then there’s no way to move it..
Well, that’s all about the current update😀
I’m planning to make tutorial articles. Simply wanna teach myself on how to deliver a good and understandable tutorial and share the things I’ve learned. Stay tuned😀
