Got any static model tanks? If so post them here.

Hey there. Reference builds are always help full. In this case it was to try some Base building products, to try them and see whether these might be useful.
This is what it turned into.ImageImage

Very nice work. Though with the sequence of pictures I am reminded of this:

1. Draw some circles.
2. Draw the rest of the owl.

Hey there Hermann. Orange foam was glued to the picture frame glass with some ce. The texture was sanded off and some thin layers of the wall filler applied and sanded back. The sections were carved in. Because these looked really too wide I used vallejo plastic putty to do some tar like road filler. As this stuff shrinks I got some gaps to tell me where to put the grass. Concrete was painted with some revell acrylic greys and vallejo colors. The black for the tar is Vallejo Nato black mixed with satin varnish. Then lots of pigments rubbed into various areas: wilder European road clay, vallejo light slate grey and especially for the joints and gaps, vallejo light siena. And almost forgot, garden dirt for some texture all over the place and especially for the area on the barrier sockets. Everything fixed with Abtl. 502 fixer.
The barriers are Meng plastic painted with the same as the ground. Lifting hooks camo black brown by vallejo, some stapled in vallejo rust. Sheen by vallejo oiled steel in camo black brown. Later some vallejo rust washes thinned with water for streaking.
The grass is just regular tufts , some painted green. The long grass is from your recommendation to paint longer brush bristles. Alle glued in with ce. That's that.

The tank is the great Takom kit.
Base coat light grey then MIG zashchitny zeleno mixed with Russian green highlight for the highlights. Much more modulation than what I was used to. Wash was only Tamuya panel liner black. Then some further modulation with mainly Abtl 502 oils, greens and ochre. Dust only Wilder European road clay in Valley pigment fixer mainly to the bottom and tracks, running gear. Was able to work that with water later on. Finally some of that and dry pigments on top and some yellow oil paint dry brushing in the end. In between filters was the zashchitny zeleno in 95% acrylic airbrush thinners sprayed on. Pictures mainly in the order of painting. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

While I was at it, I also made a Base for the Tape 59. With all this done I will now try do go at the Base for the 1/16 Jagdpanther before going either back at or starting a new big tank project..

Thank you for the kind comments, :)
This is indeed to try techniques and to maybe do some vignettes for the 1/16 scale tanks as well. By that one can include a small support to relieve the suspension during display.
