Hello!
Again thanks for all comments!

WIP:
The chipping work is finally done. I also started to paint some rusting effects, but not finished yet.














After that the mud on the lower hull will be applied.
Best regards!
Sergiusz

Hey Sergiusz,
may we call you "Chipmaster" from now on?
These really are the best chips I´ve always seen.
I especially love the ones on the back of the casematte were the spare tracks were fixed.

I'm going back and reading the rest of this thread now. What are you guys, like 4 year art students or something? The use of colors and techniques is amazing to me.

Sergiusz,

Wonderful paint job. You can tell you are taking your time and putting a lot of TLC on this one. It will be a masterpiece once done.

I know you just started working on the rust and chipping, but just remember not to add any rust around the muzzle break. This is because as a gunner one of your duties is to keep the business end of the cannon spotless. So in reality it would look more than polish steel at the edges from the continuous cleaning. After all no self respecting gunner will ever be caught with rust on his muzzle break.

So it seems. In real life this vehicle should have been repainted already...

Please note that weld-seams doesn't rust! It would also be quite unlikely that the loader's hatch would have rusted edges (because of people climbing in and out of the vehile all the time).
Also the commanders scissors-telescope is usually removed and stored in an internal box when not in use. Thus it would also not rust.

Otherwise a wonderful paintjob. Maybe a bit overdone for a vehicle in use, but still nicely painted!

Yes, I know. I just painted some fine primer chips on the edges. There will be no rust at all on the muzzle break.

It's just day before the repainting process

Please note that weld-seams doesn't rust!

Yes I know that. I have got a nice photo collection of rusted wrecks, and all weld seams are shiny and clear without rust.

It would also be quite unlikely that the loader's hatch would have rusted edges (because of people climbing in and out of the vehicle all the time).

You are absolutely right! After all weathering stages the final appearance will change-be patient

Also the commanders scissors-telescope is usually removed and stored in an internal box when not in use. Thus it would also not rust.


Yes, I just painted some minor primer chips done by mounting and removing the scissors.

Otherwise a wonderful paintjob. Maybe a bit overdone for a vehicle in use, but still nicely painted!
Thank you for all thoughts-nice to here from you because you are the StuG expert! Please be patient with this one because as I said final appearance will be different. Some of the effects must be overdone at this level because some of them will disappear.

Best regards!
Sergiusz
