Finished one of 3 Tracked Superheavy Tanks and took some pics! Comments welcome!

Nice. Looks like it has been in the field a while.

Very nice work! I like the gritty texture on the white areas. It gives the tank character and really gives it a well used feel as Deeman mentioned. I really need to get my Silers painted up and hope they come out as good as your have.

I just got done working on my own Khurasan project and tried some weathering on it to give it a well worn feel. I should have some decent pictures of it up tomorrow. Jon just keeps churning out great vehicles one after the other.

Nice job, love the weathering, suitably filthy.

I'll second all those comments. It looks like it's been stationed on a cold miserable outpost for a very long time.

That's excellent work, and love the camo. Airbrushed, I presume?

Thanks for the comments!


No airbrush! I am a poor student! I had to make due with spray cans.

My process involved undercoating grey, taping post-it notes (the thin variety) together and making a criss-cross pattern over the tank, misting several time with white spray, washing the entire model with future floor polish and black ink, stippling white paint over the white camo areas, highlighting the grey, cut a rectangle template and added black rectangles where white touched grey (some variety!), painted the odd detail black and highlighted, made a VERY dilute brown wash (basically it is a 1part paint to 10 parts water. VERY transparent!) and painted this into most nooks and crannys of the model, took a blisterpack sponge and tore off some sections, dipped in black paint and used it to add chip marks (Search google for a better explanation! It will change the way you weather models!) brushed tracks and underside of tank mud brown and feathered up onto the tank, highlighted tracks with a pencil (metal sneaking through mud!) and dullcote!

I may have missed some steps, but, that is the majority!

Now I just need some decals and to finish the other two…

Yowzah! Very cool and filthy and menacing.

Looks awesome dude, as always! Can't wait to see it up close.
