Pzkpfw. VI "TIGER" ausf. E Revell 1/72

Hello,
this is my first post on forum and my third tank in 1/72. I have got few problems with tiger ,but it's fantastic. I build it without zimmerit, becuase tiger is my traning tank for airbrush , weathering and damage by using in fight. That's all


Lowerhull

...with upperhull

..with turret...

All comments are welcome

Jacob,

That sounds good. Don't be afraid of using Vallejo. I paint mostly using acrylics and Vallejo paints are superb when airbrushed. The thing to remember is to thin them down at least 60% paint and 40% thinner ( for thinner I use a mixture of 50% water and 50% Isopropil alcohol), and to give it mutiple thin coats instead of one thick one.

I hope this helps

dave

That can happen to any paint if you thin it way too much, the tiny drops could be due to several things, first you may be using too much pressure or you are holding your airbrush too close. Regarding the alcohol compatibility issue, well, you've seen my work and I always use alcohol / water mix to dilute the paint. I have never had an issue.

Hi Jacob

Very brave of you in 1/72nd scale, I always use Vallejo paints and where possible use the Vallejo AIR for air brushing and find these to be superb. Model colour I thin either with pure water (Distilled if Possible) or with Vallejo acrylic thinners, no trouble at all.
Peter
