For this model I was trying to roughly recreate the camouflage pattern shown below. This picture is taken from the Earl of Grey Panther collection and shows a Panther G from Panzer Lehr division in the Ardennes (coincidentally the division and area I am modelling for my Panzer company).
The final model is fairly close. I chose to leave a little more Dunkelgelb so the colour modulation was still visible.
I painted the camouflage in a similar method to this post; Tutorial: Painting camouflage with silly putty. The main difference was that I used sticky tack instead of silly putty. I found the silly putty was a bit hard to remove sometimes. The sticky tack is a little easier to shape for the wavy areas too.
After camouflage was applied.
To finish the model I added decals, did some paint chips, used an oil filter and a bit of a wash, and added some dust with pigments. I experimented a little more with fixing pigments. I think I am satisfied with the final results.
I've started work on a platoon of Panzer IV Js that should be finished soon. Check back soon for some pictures of the Panzer IVs and some pictures of some T-34s I am also painting. I'm planning to take some pictures of the oil wash and filter when I paint the Panzer IVs and will put up a short tutorial on using oil paints. Thanks for visiting. Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated as always!
