Miniart 1/35 tow truck AA type

Now that the L1500S cargo truck is done, my attention now goes to getting this one finished;

So far it has had a thinned black/brown mix sprayed onto the chassis, wheels and lower surfaces of the cab and crane followed by a light overspray of Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan. At the moment I’m applying various pigments and then I’ll build up the mud using a dark brown pigment powder and Winsor and Newton Stucture Gel as this vehicle will be a lot more dirtier than the L1500S. As there are no mudguards on the rear wheels I should imagine the vehicle, particularly the back of the cab would be covered in mud so that’s what I’m aiming for.

When I’ve finished messing about with the weathering I can paint the final details and then call it done so hopefully either tonight or on my next days off from work.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
