1/35 Italeri Tiger (P) Elefant: WIP#2- Paint & Wash & decal

This build will be placed under: 1/35 Italeri Tiger(P) Elefant
and also will be in my site: when its done :o)

After i completed the camo painting, noted that i still need to touch-up the camo.

But me being impatience, decided to flat coat the model and went straight to wash and decal (ideally should be decal then wash).

 i'm doing wash by using the Tamiya Panel Line accent (brown & black) and using oil paint (raw umber & black) with Zippo fluid.

with all this washes, i might need to redo it after the decal and after i touch-up the camo... repetitive work which can be avoided if i'm a bit patience....

Decal is next:
This being a very old kit, the decal decided to disintegrate upon contact with water.. so i end up with a meticulous work of placing the decal in a puzzle style. In bit and pieces and with the help of a tweezer. The end result is as follows:

I suppose this is *maybe* ok since in the field this might happen... right? (me trying to justify the bits and pieces i put together :lol:)

This should be it for now.
next the touch-up of the camo.... and another wash..

BTW: i also begin working on a F-14A Jolly Rogers, will up the WIP soon.
until then.. :)

1/35 Italeri Tiger(P) Elefant: WIP#1 - Build & paint

I'm back with another build..
After almost a month of hiatus (busy with work, life etc), i'm back with my next build.

This build will be placed under: 1/35 Italeri Tiger(P) Elefant
and also will be in my site: when its done :o)

This time a build to *hopefully* support my local Group Build called "Animal GB". Basically to build anything with an animal name in it... so i guess Tiger & Elefant should be an animal name. So i choose this instead.

Originally this is for Age of Innocence GB (kit with mold dated back in the 80's) but i could make it in time (hence the hiatus), so animal GB it is then.

Thanks Google..
the instruction is very spartan but as for OOB build i just use some guessing on the placement of the parts. A few issue here and there but it build up to be (from my eyes) an Elefant tank :)

Again i skipped the surfacer treatment and went straight to painting the base color over the dark-green plastics. I used the mixture of Sandy yellow + dark yellow and the result is as follows:

i intentionally using a light passes of the mixture to at least have the patchy look on the tank surface.

Next the green camo.
I use Nato green and before that i draw the camo pattern on the tank with a pencil, if you look closely you might still see the marking on there as it not properly covered by the green camo.

 With this pattern as a guide, i freehand airbrush the camo using a rounding movement of the airbrush, making a tiny circle for the pattern to build up the camo (hopefully you guys know what i meant).

Result below.

That's it for now...
NEXT: continue with paint, clear coat, decal, wash?
