When this is completed I fully expect to see it carrying a bundle of matchsticks!

Thank you mates.

Michael : I used a mixture of AK acrylics: red, yellow and new iraqui sand

I painted last night some dirt with liquid pigments and added shadows with Ammo Shaders.
This was the first time I used the Shaders and I think it's a great and easy to use stuff!
27 October 2022, 15:54
WOW, it looks fantastic so far.

Thank you Spanjaard!

Thanks for your feedback. If I may ask some more technical questions:
- whichs paints do you use?
- how do you dilute them?
- do you work in segments?

I had problems with water diluted Tamiya-paints, but probably my paint coats were simply too thick. I had to resort to drastic measures like brass brushes and windex (the old formula with urea in it) to achieve the desired effects

Michael :

I use AK's 2nd and 3rd gen acrylics. But first I primed the whole model with AK 3rd gen acrylic primer. All paints are diluted with own thinner. No home made "Magic Tricks" !

Check the video from Mig how to paint the right way with acrylics: Youtube Video

The "segments" of my painting process were:

1. Primer
2. Dark rust color
3. Chipping fluid
4. Red paint and some highlights
5. Tap water and paintbrush for the chipping effects
6. Matt varnish
7. Green Stuff World's liquid pigments for the first dirt effect
8. Ammo Shaders
9. Pinwash with AK's black panel liner
10. Fading and highlights with oil paints

Next future steps
- dirt effects with AK diorama paste (stirred earth and accumulated dirt /dust)

- streaking and final weathering effects with AK weathering pencils.

I hope I could help!

Hi. Thanks for the elaborate answer.

Tamiya does not dilute well with water as it is alcohol based. The x20a thinner works or isopropyl with care.

Some little progress again on the tracks...

The paintjob on this is really top notch 👍 This project made me buy the skidder-variation of that kit!

Thank you mates!

Tom: Today I contacted with the producer of this kit, and he will released 2 other vehicles with this chassis.
Unfortunatelly he can't accept payment now, so I can buy the other maybe next year...

I think I completed this awfull awesomeness! I'm very statisfied now. This time I could succeeded as I imagined it at the start! 🙂

I can upload better daylight photos on Friday!

I think you have all the reason to be satisfied. I turned out into a really ugly beauty or beautiful ugly. 😉 Top wear. I think a figure would be nice with it.
6 December 2022, 00:10
Zsolt Czegle
Danke Michael! I try to find a worker figure, but in this scale... Maybe a Russian soldier with some modification...

I love those:!/1-72-Modern-truck-driver-with-safety-boots-1-JL/p/59064560/category=13308145
But I had to order it through their homepage (to save postage of course with more figures for plenty of future projects 😉)
6 December 2022, 07:30
Where do you get these giant matchsticks? - Wonderful small scale build, everything just right! You´re one of those 1/72 experts who I admire and envy for their sharp eyes and skilled fingers.
6 December 2022, 08:38
Łukasz Gliński
That's brilliant, you definitely need some crew in valenki boots 😄

Amazing result and a very cool gritty finish 👍

Almost forgot to leave a comment here, what a shame 😱
Not only a perfect painting on this special object, but also a good atmosphere.
You also hit the base very well and reminds me of dirty forest work 😁

Two questions:
-A short description of the base please
-And how is the construction of snake model kits?
7 December 2022, 17:12
Zsolt Czegle
Danke sehr Simon!

The Snake Modell kits have very good quality of resin and great castong. Everything fits precisious. No grates only few little seamlines. Nothing to sanding. The main thing is: the object is unique.

The base is made with my usual technic: I glued some polysytren chips on the base with pva glue. The ground is made from acrylic paste from AK (8023) After it d ez írd I pai ted with Green Stuff World's liquid pigments. The pub les are made with AK Puddles (8028). The leafs are pu ched from real yellowed leafs with Green Stuff World's leaf puncher. (1416)

Maybe next time I'll take photos about every stage...

I hope I could help...
