That's not a bad base to work from, Lethal. It's still going to need some love, but that's a good base to start from.

Thanks Lert, but I don't think i'll go to much further on this old tank, the road wheels and commander copula are just too damaged.

About half of the road wheels are skewed off at odd angles, and the copula is cemented together wrong.

 

I've been using it as a test bed for undercoats, pre shading, topcoats, homemade washes, spraying oil washes, streaking, color modulation, pigments, you pretty much name it.

Most of it is buried under more paint, every time I use the paint gun, if I have some left over in the gun I shoot it on there just to see.


 

This last time though, i thought it looked really nice, you can't really tell it in the photos, but there's around 5 different shades of dark yellow on it.

I suspect that if I top coated it in gloss and added a rusty/yellow wash that it'd really pop out. When I build a new Panzer IV, I'm going to try to replicate it.

Thanks again for the feedback Lert! :honoring:

Could always make it a wreck in a diorama.

Has anyone built/bought any of Italeri's newly released WoT-branded tanks?  Was wondering about the 1/56 Churchill.

Not yet as they are a bit expensive.

Me either, but I only work in 1/35 as my eyes are getting old and too many small parts are just too hard for me to work with.

From what I have seen of the newer Italeri kits though, is that they are pretty good quality.
