After almost a month of hiatus (busy with work, life etc), i'm back with my next build.
This build will be placed under: 1/35 Italeri Tiger(P) Elefant
and also will be in my site: Kumanworks.com when its done :o)
This time a build to *hopefully* support my local Group Build called "Animal GB". Basically to build anything with an animal name in it... so i guess Tiger & Elefant should be an animal name. So i choose this instead.
Originally this is for Age of Innocence GB (kit with mold dated back in the 80's) but i could make it in time (hence the hiatus), so animal GB it is then.
the instruction is very spartan but as for OOB build i just use some guessing on the placement of the parts. A few issue here and there but it build up to be (from my eyes) an Elefant tank :)
Again i skipped the surfacer treatment and went straight to painting the base color over the dark-green plastics. I used the mixture of Sandy yellow + dark yellow and the result is as follows:
Next the green camo.
I use Nato green and before that i draw the camo pattern on the tank with a pencil, if you look closely you might still see the marking on there as it not properly covered by the green camo.
With this pattern as a guide, i freehand airbrush the camo using a rounding movement of the airbrush, making a tiny circle for the pattern to build up the camo (hopefully you guys know what i meant).
That's it for now...
NEXT: continue with paint, clear coat, decal, wash?
