My Ferdinand

using the Dragon Ferdinand vehicle no. 150100 OOB. I used many layers of weathering, may have overdone it in some areas. Comments pls.

thx
Phil D.

Thx for the comments

This was my first attempt at heavy weathering, I think it turned fairly well.

Coops, you asked about my next project. I'm pulling out all the stops on the Dragon (I really like their kits...) M1A1 AIM kit. I plan to open it up to show engine and engine bay detail; cutaway one side of the turret to display the interior; lift the turret up and out of the tank body to show off the crew basket as well as the detail in the hole. I'm using some of the resin parts from the Italeri M1A1 kit but will scratch build everything else. I'm going with more of a technical or engineering approach to display what this monster is about. Aside from the normal washes to high light details, I don't plan on any heavy weathering, we'll see. I expect this will take a good bit of this year to do. Will keep you informed.

thx
Phil D.

Well it turns out that I may be able to help you out with the M1 and it's to do with books/ref info that will fit in with Prime Portal's photos.
Right now I'm ditching my provider (bigpond sucks) and because I can't "churn" I must wait for the end of one contact and the start of the next. About 10 working days (2weeks). Any how drop me a line on my email account and I'll talk about what we can do to help.

colors

I used Floquil Red Zinc Primer as the based coat. It is a laquer based paint. I really like the Floquil brand, they spray on evenly and cover very well. I then used various shades of Model Master rust, hull red and browns to "beat" it up a bit. I also used pastel chalks, graphite pencils, oils, just about everything for effect. This model was largely my first attempt into the world of "rusties". I have have seen great ones from so many other builders, I've got the bug now....

regards
Phil D.
