Just in case my original post gets lost in the shuffle, here's the most recent progress of my Tiger I winter diorama.

I've taken the Tiger through several layers of weathering, starting with painting chipping and wear, then general road film/grime, then progressing to rust and finally mud effects for the tracks and wheels as well as the various metal guards, etc.

I hope to finally get the tank done and all the elements put together on the diorama base over the next week or so.

More pics. of the next weathering stages, utilizing Citadel Contrast, Vallejo Environmental Effects, and ordinary flat black model paint:

The tracks done with a simple base coat of Citadel Corax White spray followed by a wash of Citadel Contrast Skeleton Horde:

…progressing to the rust and mud effects. Both of them Vallejo products from their Environmental weathering series:

…and finally with the tracks attached and the mud effects applied:

And then the most recent weathering stage: adding some soot/grime effects to the exhaust shields. I decided to just use simple model paint for that and try a dry brushing technique. I think the overall effect is pretty convincing considering it's just dry brushed on paint:

In conclusion I want to mention that this is literally my first attempt in my entire hobbying life of doing a military diorama where I incorporated doing full scenery, an historical vehicle with full weathering and detailing, etc.

For the longest time I wanted to say I did at least one military diorama and decided to just dive in with both feet and get the experience of it!

Hopefully it will turn out decently enough to display!

coming along nicely, I think the exhaust effect worked well.
Looking cold already……
