Merkava I – WIP#01

Hello folks,

Tamiya Merk1, will have to finish OOB due to lack of local detail set supplies, tho i will do the anti slip surfaces per the ref. pictures at PP and the tamiya extra thin + baking soda method shared here, tho i’ll use cellulose (lacquer) thinners instead of the green cap.

Build started last night and it’s almost ready for the anti slip, except the terribly skewed rear right hand corner which has to be glued in small steps, so there isn’t much to document atm – hopefully next pix will be with anti slip fully covered and everything is ready for paint – ’82 Lebanon in the ever elusive idf gray green blue yellow…

Base was constructed from several layers of packing foam, wrapped around with drawing paper, then filled with air drying clay. Once everything was set the drawing paper is smeared flush with Knauf brand plaster, once hardened the trim was wet sanded with 600 and 1200 grit sandpapers for smoothing it all out. W&N Burnt Sienna was used to paint the trim than washed with burnt sienna and ivory black mixture for the shadows, both were done with a bad paintbrush to achieve the wooden look.

Toppings were modelling moss, tiny stones for the rocks, dried out flower root for the dislodged tree trunk, long bushes were from household hemp and the short bushes were made out of regular rope, all vegetation sections were lined up in an irregular triangle fashion, a la Paine’s diorama building instructions to create natural looking non symmetry. Earth was kitchen baking soda fixed with watered down white glue – used syringe and old deodorant spray to distribute the glue without upsetting the shape of the ground for the track marks and whatnot . Everything atop the base was painted with Vallejo model color acrylics. Leaves over the tank and the base was dried maple leaves ground with the back of a large tweezers than fixed with Vallejo acrylic thinners.

Here’s the result after refurbishing the paint job and building a simple base to create a vignette. Enjoy.

No WIP Shots Tonight but…

My last 2 jet builds, the beloved Su-27 and the dreaded A-7 are both now centerpieces at the local hobby shop.

T-72 M1 Revisited – WIP#02

Further work:

  1. Dark brown oil paints for pinwashes.
  2. Dark brown oil paint + enamel silver  drybrushing for metal effect per Verlinden’s instructions.
  3. Earth and sand colored oil paints almost neat flicked from paintbrush towards the sideskirts and other logical areas.
  4. Dark Brown Vallejo model color used for paint chipping via tapping with a piece of sponge, also a bit of streaking and smearing here and there for paint scratches and fading.

TO DO:

  • Pigments for dust sand and exhaust.
  • Simpleton desert themed base, tho i mean to create something like a hull down defilade position but it might obscure the vehicle too much, remains to be seen.
