With the Tamiya Porsche out of the way it’s time to get back to what I usually do and seeing it was lovely and warm outside today the Tasca 1/35 Luchs got a basecoat of black from a rattle can;
Hopefully I can get some paint on it soon.
I was looking through my blog last night and found pictures of an AFV Club 1/35 251/1 C ‘Stuka zu fuss’ that I built and painted over 10 years ago;
I remember at the time somebody saying it was good but needed some contrast with the mud as it was all one tone and after seeing the pics again last night I had to agree. I still have the model so dug it out of storage and had a look at it today;
Apart from the monotone mud, the model still stands up pretty well some ten years later and is miraculously still intact too (others in storage have various bits broken or missing). I quite fancy reworking the model so may have a play to see how I can improve it, the first thing would be to respray the front panel of the hull as I got carried away with the mud originally. The mud effects also need some contrast and exhaust staining from the rockets needs adding as I’m pretty sure these vehicles would be pretty sooty or scorched.
