I am thinking that I may make these available soon as a universal kit. Looking at options at the moment to see the best route to take for these. Check it out in the photo and videos below and leave me your opinion.
Ok, so here it is, five years deep in RC tanking. The
hobby has given me some very good friends from all over the world. Along with
those friends comes a collective knowledge of everything armor. In a quest to
keep learning, I began to dabble with an airbrush, and frequent sites where many
of thre best armor model builders dwell. I began trying to incorporate high
levels of detail into my RC tanks with the use of Photo Etch parts and paint and
weathering. Now, I woul like to urge others to join this wonderful hobby of
building and running /battling rc tanks. I would also like to share what I have
learned here in pictures of my in progress works. Enjoy and stay tuned....the best is yet to come
Here is a Tamiya King Tiger which is being repainted for a friend over in Australia. This tank has along journey home...
so, I decided to make it into a rustbucket. It is a WIP at the moment, but I will post photos as it goes form here. All of the work on this truck was done with an airbrush to this stage. First, the truck was lightly sanded,a nd then primed with Vallejo Primer. After, I used AK interactive's rust paint set o apply the light and dark rust to the entire vehicle. Once dry, I used AK's chipping fluid over the truck, followed by white paint. After a little while I began to chip and scrape away at the paint to uncover the rust. This gives a very realistic, three dimensional effect. Pigments will be used later for more effects when I get back to it. For now, these are the stages it has gone through.
