Showcase: Winter T-34 platoon

I've finished painting a Flames of War T-34 platoon in winter whitewash camouflage. The platoon is the Battlefront SBX-01 T-34 obr. 1942 platoon. Initially I played around with some colour modulation of the green colour but it ended up too bright. To fix it I decided to paint the models in winter whitewash. I used the "hairspray method" to chip the whitewash and varied the thickness using the airbrush. I added weathering and definition over top using oil paints.

Cribs: Hobby Spaces Edition

I've recently moved house and set up a new hobby space. In today's post I thought I would show you my current set up. My previous apartment was very small. In the new apartment we have an office/space bedroom so I have space to have my table set up well and a closet to store all of the extra things. I also invested in a few new storage solutions to try and keep everything organized. In this post I'll show a few pictures of the space and how it is working so far.

Showcase: PSC Panther G

I've finished painting the Panther G I was working on in my dunkelgelb colour modulation tutorial. The model is a 15mm Panther G from Plastic Soldier Company. In this post I will show a few pictures of the finished model and some work in progress pictures of how I painted the camouflage.

Tutorial: Dunkelgelb Colour Modulation for 15mm

In this tutorial I will demonstrate how I airbrush dunkelgelb (German WW2 Europe tan colour) on German tanks and vehicles for Flames of War. In this tutorial I am using Vallejo Model Air colours roughly corresponding to the new Vallejo AFV Dunkelgelb Colour Modulation paint set. In this tutorial I am painting a 15mm Panther G plastic model from Plastic Soldier Company. In the second part of the tutorial I will show how I painted the camouflage pattern onto this Panther and the finished model.
