Ma.K Hover Tank - part 21

The painting continues.....

I have sponged on a second highlight of Linen and Leather Brown and Forest Green for the turret. The highlight has the effect of 'popping' the modelled-on detail but is a little too light for my taste.

I have therefore 'washed' the whole model with a variety of different washes. I like to apply these washes on a wet model - I first paint the model with Wet Water (water to which I have added a tiny drop of washing up liquid) and then add diluted washed in layers. When these washes are fully dry, I have sponged on some chipped paint effect. I have used Panzer Grey as the first chipping and then a lighter grey applied with a fine pointed brush to the centre of the larger effects.

The detail painting - the grills, the exhaust and the tools has been done with a fine brush.

The next step is applying the decals.

I admire your industry!

Am I allowed to say that I'm really not sure about the different coloured hull and turret???
