In Progress>>Stug III>>Chipping

In my previous post, I already explain the method I use for chipping. This is the tank that gets beat up by those techniques πŸ˜€

At first, I overdone chipping the tank. It looks more like a dirt rather than a chipped paint T.T So I erase the excessive paint, and you can see the result above πŸ˜€

Here’s some more pictures

      yeah, sometimes if we get too comfortable with a certain technique, we always think it’s not enough LOL I’ve read this scale modeling book and the author say “always stop when you’re about to think that it’s enough”

    Awesome work man!!! Subtle is key and you got it in the weathering ^^

      Speaking of Mari, I haven’t seen her attacking you anymore…being a good friend lately? LOL

      thanks, I always love chipping process, I think chipping is the point where the weathering makes a really cool effect πŸ˜€

      Thanks πŸ˜€
      this is actually Italeri πŸ˜€ in military scale modeling, you have various choice of brand with much or less the same quality.
      Tamiya gives the best detail, with expensive price
      Academy really bad in details, but very friendly on the price
      Dragon (my favorite) and italeri is kinda between Tamiya and Academy, nice detail, and affordable πŸ˜€
      Not to mention other european brands out there πŸ˜€

        oh italeri *_* and dragon friendly in price and detail but most store I visit only sell academy and tamiya kinda hard looking those two

    Don’t really understand military kit, but this is awesome, even to my eyes as a random blogwalker.
    The detail is very hawt. Normally one must use Photoshop to make this effect, but you could make this in real life. πŸ˜€

    • h4mster says:

      Thanks πŸ˜€
      haha, photoshop only allowed when I mistakenly produce a photos that have different color with real kit πŸ˜€ Other than that, it’s against the rule (my rule that is LOL)

      • h4mster says:

        Photoshop is not always bad, just don’t make it have more domination on the kit πŸ˜€
        But it only applies when you want to show your work on the kit. Different rules applies when you make (for example) a toy theater. Effects from photoshop could sometimes spice up the stories πŸ˜€

    Awesome! Look at the details….mmmmm…..maknyus!!!!! The effects looks so real.
    Now I suggest you build a dio bro, will be very very nice.

    • h4mster says:

      Nah, I’m still learning the basic stuff bro πŸ˜€ Diorama is a level I’m not ready to enter yet. I will, however, add some figures alongside the tank (I don’t know if it could be considered as diorama LOL)

    :O wow! I din really see this effect before. Most of the tanks at the shops are just normal air-brushed or with some shade. But this effect is really nice!

    • h4mster says:

      Thanks man πŸ˜€
      There is this hobby shop here in Indonesia, where you can display your kits on the shop. Since it is the one of the biggest hobby shop in my country, some of Indonesian best modeler are displaying their work there, pretty poisonous if I must say LOL
