M-18 Hellcat Pt. 2

 Well it's been a long week. I had to go over my uncles to fix a hole in his garage roof and fix his garage door. There was a huge oak tree in his neighbors yard and one the of the branches fell through the roof causing a hole the size of a softball, I guess it knocked part of the door off it's frame too.

 On top of that we've been painting our living room and dining room and it looks like the the kitchen's next on the list, not exactly the kind of painting I want to do.

 Anyways, I outlined the seams and edges on the tank with my airbrush. This could create a subtle shadow effect, if I don't over do the weathering on it. Laid down a base coat of an olive drab color and picked out details that stick out with a slightly lighter shade of the base coat





 





 Here's what the base looks like for now. I have a grass mat to add and I'll be making two trees for it.

What is the mat/circular thing you have the tank on in the first three pictures? Is that an airbrushing station?

Daniel said...

This will surely be great, when its finished.

@Braden, It's a turn table that broke. I stripped it down and use it like a lazy susan so I can turn the model around without touching it, great for airbrushing. The blue mat itself is a rubber no slip mat. I used double sided tape to stick it down.

Do you ever paint entire models with airbrush or just use it for certain details?
