What is the best way to get pigments off of areas that you don't want them? I am asking because, looking at my pictures, it appears I have rust on top of painted areas where it would never occur.

Michael,

If you haven't applied any Fixer to the pigments, then you should be able to wash them off with a few applications of clean thinner. Apply with a soft brush, a little scrubbing motion then blot dry with dry brush or clean cloth/napkin.

You may never get all of the color off, but it will remove most...then you can reapply a different color or repaint the surface.

Rick

This is the box weathered and glued to the hull. What is in this box?
It's not a box - it's a piece of wood to put under the jack to lift the tank when on soft ground.

Michael, That is a fine looking Tiger that you have built there. The camo scheme looks to me to be a very effective type due to having much green instead of yellow. Covered with dust it must have blended in well.

Dan,

Thanks for the compliment! I was both a 19E, 19K, and 19A. I think this was a great camo scheme, after spending time on the monochromatic green and NATO tri-color M1! I think the M1A1 SEP may be my next endeavor after finishing this one.

I was a Echo as well! Good old 'A3's! I'll will be watching for the SEP build (didn't get on one of those).

My adventures with launching PE tool clasp parts aside, here are some update pics.

I mixed some railroad pigments that I had to get this mix. I am not looking to make the Tiger look really muddy, just as if it has gone through some muddy terrain at some point. That said, a lot of this will be brushed off. What is the best way to fix these in place so they don't all come off?

Here is what I have on the tracks


And some shots of the running gear and lower hull...

PE Triumph!

I am sure this is no big deal to most of you guys, because I think many of you probably built your houses, cars, and children's toys out of photo etch, but I finally got one of those tiny little tool clasps put together correctly! Of course, my kids thought today would be a good day to run the battery on my camera down, but I will post a picture of my one shovel-holding PE clasp tomorrow!
