Thanks for the link Tony There are some well known photos there and I never get tired looking at Panther pics.

More pics

Here're coulpe of pics i made today...

Model was covered by Tamiya X-22 Clear then washed by using enamels thinned with turpentine after it whole tank was dusted by using mix of different Tamiya paints... and finally it was lightly dusted with MiG Pigments...

I'd like to say that I'm not too happy how it looks for this time... looks like something goes wrong in weathering process.. Hope it'll be better after next steps..

Any opinions guys?





I'll post more pics as soon as possible..

Tony

Yeah, it looks a bit too faded but not that bad You might want to try a thin wash over the entire model to bring some of the detail back. IDK....

Anthony,

It looks fine all you need is to add a little contrast and it will pop again. Dust does that to the camo. That's why it's so hard to see the camo in photos, it's covered in dust.

Keep going!

Larry

It doesn't look too bad to me! Check out Sheeds' Panther, it's got a nice look going for it. Maybe you could post some overall shots of the Panther, so we can get a better feel for it?

Thanx for your comments guys!

Fletcher... I agree.. maybe it's a bit too much of brown washes and dust? )

Larry... I think so about dust too... That's why i'm not started full repainting of Panther yet.. )) Maybe after addition weathering it'll look better....

Evan... yeah, I saw his really cool Panther... and here're a bit more pics of Panther i made

It doesn't look that bad. It just that the dust is too evenly applied over the whole vehicle. Usually dust accumulates more on the horizontal surfaces instead of the vertical sides.I would suggest applying some filters to add some tonal variations. Then add some rain streaks, rust streaks and a little chips here and there.
