|I took some fun pictures with my display board and some backgrounds.|
These models are the resin Jagdtiger models from Battlefront. The casts were nice and clean (none of that annoying bumpy resin as on some older molds). The tracks fit well and didn't leave big gaps. The only issues were with attaching fenders (always annoying) and adding on all the bits. It was tough to get the numbers to fit due to all the track hangers on the side of the hull.
I've been using the same technique for tracks on my last few models. I made sure to take pictures of each step so I will put up a short tutorial on painting German tracks some time in the next few weeks.
Dunkelgelb base like usual (click for tutorial). I then masked each section with blue painters tape and blue tack (in hard to reach places).
Next, I sprayed colour modulation on the green all over the tank. I used Vallejo Model Air Russian Green mixed with VMA Sand to highlight.
|Makes me want to do a Soviet tank again... :-)|
Finally, I masked off the brown areas for each bit and did the same. It was a lot of work but I think it looks pretty interesting and is a change from primarily dunkelgelb German tanks.
These models were a lot of fun to paint. I have another 3 Jagdtigers all finished. I'll post up some pictures of them in the next little while. I've also been working away some Panzergrenadiers for Gottacon. Check back soon for more!
|Many more of these fellows coming soon!|
