Intro & Build
Painting and Weathering
First a primer was sprayed over the model after which a black preshade followed. The preshade is clearly visible on the pictures below. After the preshade I airbrushed the sand color. Everything was sealed with a gloss coat in order to apply the decals and start the weathering!
Decals were applied using a decal setter and softner to avoid silvering and flow the decals over the bolts and other obstacles. I used a heavy oil wash with a dark gray colour in order to replicate a heavily used vehicle! after the wash I used the streaking effect to create vertical streaks that appear on real vehicles because of the dirt/dust and rain. Some pigments were used to finish this project!
