on todays episode...

good morning gents! today i want to show you a little trick to mask the wheels of the AFV´s
all you need its this:
TOOLS:
vernier caliper
ruler
olfa circle cutter
blue tac or similar
silly putty
airbrush
MATERIALS:
styrene sheet
wide soldering wire
bamboo stick

first with the vernier, measure the wide of wheel

then when you have the right wide measure of the wheel, use the ruler to open the olfa circle cutter to an a proper size, cut two circles and then glue one to the bamboo stick

use the soldering wire and wrap it around the wheel


put a bit f blue tac on each side of the styrene circle

now its time to put all together

with your airbrush spray matt black or gray paint to the wheel

voila!!!perfectly painted wheel! check how in the middle of the wheel still have the original NATO green



now its time to have fun with the silly putty

just use a few to mask the ilder

use again the airbrush

voila! here it is the result

you can use a fine brush to correct and give the final touches to each wheel
that's all for today gents, stay tuned

Hey

Hey Ivan

Great progress on your model and I must say great find on how to spray roadwheels easy. I always hate to handpaint them I am going to give your plan off attack a go on my next model. It just looks so simple and easy.

Regarding the model I really like the Chips you made specially on the drivers hatch and on the turret between the two hatches. What did you try to achieve spraying NATO green, gunze H50 and %40 tamiya clear? You describe it as a glaze but It's not entirely clear for me what you mean.

Cheers Roel

hi Roelke!
maybe the thing that i tried to achieve as a glaze didn't work quite as that, maybe it turned out like a kind of "filter" but well it gives a bit of more color variation to the base. i must admit that the paint chips on the turret didn't like me a lot, so i tried the "glaze" to turn it down a bit
thanks for watching
Ivan Loera

Nice model.Smartly also the technique with the wheels, but i think only with the styrene circles as the other one has no very good masking results.
