A small update before pigments and detail painting.
I had a terrible bad luck with the paint job (Tamiya colors with Tamiya Enamel Thinner). It got so rough that it seemed like an anti slip coating. I had to sand it with fin sand paper an give it a last coat very thinned to avoid the same effect. Tamiya gloss coat just didn't work. It seemed I was sprying it with water. I had to give it a coat of gloss with Vallejo just to get a satin look.
The figure if from Miniart with a Hornet head and the decals are from a Dragon Pz III J.
I did think of giving it a white wash coat but after the troubles with the paint job and the gloss varnish I decided that is better to stay still and not mess everything.








The next phase if placing the tools, some chipping (if needed) and finally the pigments.

All comments welcome.

You sure can't tell that you had troubles, it looks great from here. I like the color shifts that you've done...very attractive.

I'll talk to you later,

Rick

Thanks Rick
I'm glad I saved it. When I started to see the paint starting to become an anti slip I was really annoyed. That's what a rookie gets by trying to use the techniques of the masters.
I still don't know how I did that. I tried to replicate the effect on a piece of plastic and it was always smooth. Murphy's Law I guess. Everything went wrong even with the gloss coat. Tried Tamiya and just managed to make it look like I had dropped oil on the matt color. Repaint. Xtracrylics gloss and nothing happened other than a milky matt look. Repaint. Finally Vallejo but with coats and coats before it started to get a little satin. Phew... the gods of paint hate me.... but I insist and insist till I get what I want .

It took a little longer than expected but it's finally complete. The only thing missing is some detail painting on the figure and that's all.
Hope you like it

Thanks Mateusz

I use pigments and some mud by mixing light wall filler with pigments.
I apply them with mineral white spirits or pigment fixer from Mig. They produce very different results and I'm trying to figure when I should use one or the other (or both as it was in this case).
To give a wet look I used MiG Damp and Water effects mainly in the wheels and tracks.

Hi Antonio

Great build as always. With the figure you've put on board it really shows how big the track road wheels are in comparison to the rest of the vehicle.

Best regards

Alan

This turned out amazing Antonio!
I usually donīt like E-types, but this really tempted me to build one myself.
Great work!

Anotonio,

As I already mentioned to you directly, I think that you did a really nice job with this. I find myself returning to the pictures to take another look...that's a good thing.

How 'bout that Firefly?
