Nice sbs!
I really like the way you applied the basecoats, especially the dark yellow oils.
Never seen it done this way. Why did you decide to use oils in stead of just airbrushing the yellow?

Also I would like to know how you applied the worn of white wash?

Very inspiring build!

Rob.

Great work Ian, I really like colours you've achieved. What is the reason you apply the mud prior to painting?

Hi Rob,
thanks for the questions and the comments. I apologise for the delay in my reply........
I use oils for the yellow because I wanted it to look more detail as though it had been applied in the field by brush or broom. The airbrush won't give this effect. Applying the second cammo layer in oils by hand is my usual approach, as it gives me more control over the shapes and wear effect.
The brown was airbrushed because I wanted it too appear as an afterthought and applied by airgun - there was only a small amount as well.
The winter cammo was applied by brush (in oils) for the most part where it is fading, the parts that are more deteriorated such as the peeling was still in oils but applied by stretched out soap pad - I use the random effect of the pad to get the wear when it is only in small amounts, otherwise I use the chipping fluids from various companies, or hairspray.

Ian.

Hello Erik,
thanks for the question.
I apply the mud before painting because the texture is what I am after not the color. I detail the color later but the dark brown base helps if I miss a little hear and there.

Ian.

Hi Ian,

Nice job, the oils are a great idea.

I have to admit that I just stopped by on a lark today - It's probably been 2 years since I looked in? Good to see a few familiar names form the "good ole' days" (still?) posting.

Maybe I should make it more of a regular stop.

Later all,

Rick

Hey Rick,
long time no hear, hope all is well!
Please make it more regular and we can catch-up. Last time we spoke I bought a kv-x walker from you (about 2010).

Ian.
