Hi Dave,

Amazing detail as usual including the weather, which is a step I'm looking forward to but still looking at techniques before taking the plunge.

Regards

Dave

Hi Dave,

I've done this one in photo stages with paint brands etc on FB. Will also be adding it to my Tutorials section on the website. Hopefully with Stephens excellent Aussie Cent thread and Phil's Limber etc some of these techniques are now being explained. My techniques are from numerous different tutors and over the years I have amalgamated them into what works for me.

Best regards,

Dave

Dave, a real pleasure to see such a realistic and masterful model. It's up there with the very best. Thanks too for putting your methods on Facebook. As you say, it might encourage.

Weathering is a personal preference and I've had some private comments on my Cent along the lines of "don't spoil it with weathering". I guess it's a question of whether someone is more interested in the technology represented or the model itself or more interested in a scale model as a representation of a real, operational piece of kit. I very much take the latter view. You've done it superbly, I can sense the Tunisian landscape (or Italy?). (I'm only going by the date on the ammunition, 1943, by which time the desert campaign was pretty much over). Kit in context. That's what weathering does. It's entertaining to do as well, adds to the overall value of the investment in time and effort.

See you at SW Model Show. Hope you'll bring the PAK.

Stephen

Stunning... someday I have to learn how to do weathering like that.

Amazing!

Hi Pierce,

and thank you all, I have done a bit of a tutorial on this on the Armorpax website if you want to have a go. Stephen and some of the others have also done very good guides on here.

Best regards

Dave
