Vision and assumptions of the vignette

First and foremost, thank you, guys, for joining the trial subscription; I am extremely pleased! There are only a few of you at the moment, so we have quite a gentlemanly, even poker-faced group here! 😀 Since we are in a closed club, I can reveal more about my “concept” for this vignette. Posting a…

New project!

And it’s one with a twist. I’ve always wanted to do something original and strong in the message, not necessarily with tanks, but in the beloved 1/35 scale. So I acquired two pigs, and I don’t mean livestock, because a dog and fish are enough for me. Purely by coincidence, being at the exchange of…

Almost ready… final step

As I write this post, I have one last step left to do: delicate shading and a potential wash on the base. Basically, the formalities. However, I wanted to show you the model at this stage to clearly indicate my intentionality of using two colors of mud at once. And quite varied ones at that.…

Corrections on the base

I was about to lay down the base colors when I realized Meng’s error in creating his base. Of course, it wouldn’t matter much if one assumes that we’ll cover everything with mud in a while anyway. Still, according to Meng, the idea is a bit strange if one believes that we’ll only paint the…

Meng FT17 after wash diorama scale modeling

Washes applied to FT 17

Washes’e because I didn’t limit myself to laying down one color or type of this technique. Ready-made products from Spanish manufacturers have taught modelers to use this technique in quite a limited way because they are dense and difficult to wash. Our Oil Washes are in the opposite direction – maximum transparency to a reasonable…

Figures… ugh.

I haven’t written for a long time, sorry. There was supposed to be a beautiful tutorial about the figures, but there won’t be. Although the figures are, somehow they even came out. Why, what, and how about that in a moment. I’m not a figure artist, no question 🙂 I create armored models and dioramas…

Renault ft 17 meng chipping and filters

Chipping done and filters laid!

Well, the model is gaining color and is ready for weathering. As you may remember, the scratches were to be done on a chipping medium, which is a primer under the base paint that destabilizes its adhesion after water activation. This procedure should be done up to 2-3 hours after painting while the paint is…

Meng FT 17 French cammo painted

Risk it for a biscuit… Masking with the liquid mask on chipping medium

I like experiments. I planned early on that the model would be in three-color French camouflage since such tanks were on the equipment of the 1st tank regiment of the Haller army, which my model represents. Since I already have an undercoat in the perfect color for chipping, it was a shame not to use…
