  2. I wanted to paint in a different color some parts to make the kit more attractive, so I use Tamiya German Grey and Medium Blue , here more or less the results.
  3. some more picture of the progress yesterday. Fenders installed too.
  4. Hi guys! Ipms Nationals are almost there! Better hurry up with this little fella. Here the picture with the back fixed and retouched.
  5. Success!!!!!!! I was really lucky this time.
  6. Well I make a huge mistake on the back on the tank, its all backwards! I really done it this time. I know Dragon's instructions sucks big time, but this? I have to say its was my fault. After a close examination I found that the whole piece what place backwards. Removing the exhaust won't solve the problem, so I tried with a new and very sharp xacto knife to release the whole piece.
  7. Thanks Rob! Glad you like it. that's the idea of publishing the work in progress, help others to get new tips and ideas. (^o^)/
  8. Last Friday I went on weathering the belly of the tank.
  9. Hi! Well, after decals I started with the mud part, for this I use a mix of microballoons, white wood glue, maybe a small spoon of white sand, water and color. The last part is not that important yet, because later when its get dry I will airbrush a clear mud color, in this case I use Tamiya Deck tan. Next Day, after all is dried, I airbrush first the Deck Tan,and an hour later a mix of deck tan with a few drops of flat earth and respray the zone. So tonight I will continue making more layers in earth tones then to seal the work again to add oils details.
  10. Thanks Guys! this little fella its already traveling for Virginia!
  11. My Update from the weekend! First,Painted the wheels black, seal with clear matt the whole kit, then the next day I put some chipping using acrylics colors, then I put a filter using oils (Burnt umber) this will warm the base color. Its very important to seal your base color, because when you apply the filter using thinner, if not well covered, the paint will start to peel off. Happens to me on the turret. What I do? just put some dark chipping color to dissimulate it the best I could. Here my results so far. Still a lot of work to do.
  12. after removing the silly putty. Need some retouching here and there bet the results are great.
  13. Here the result after applying tamiya dark yellow with flat white
  14. I applied silly putty on all the model to cover the areas were the green camo will stay.

    Tamiya Simca 5

    The Simca 5 is a small Franco-Italian passenger car designed, by Fiat engineers at Turin. It was produced and sold in France by Simca. It was virtually identical to the Fiat 500 Topolino. The Simca 5 was conceived as the French car of the people, in the same way as the Volkswagen was for Germany and the Fiat 500 for Italy. It boasted many advanced features including independent front suspension, four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and a 12 volt electrical system. The Simca 5 also achieved outstanding fuel economy. Tamiya make this tiny little fella and is a very easy built for a weekend. I painted this kit in gray and left it unfinished until now. The kit was in bad shape, wheel broken, wiper blade gone, etc. I fixed and glue again the parts, scratchbuilt one wiper blade, added the base with the fence, etc. I wanted to show some bright color to center the view in the kit, so I tried some dried flowers I found in a $1 store. Here the results, hope you like it.
  16. I just primed the model in white, but instead of going to the base color I started with the camo color in the darkest color first, then today I will go again with a less darker until I achieve some light on it. So let see if this work for me.
  17. I wanted to make some shadows and lights with the green so started with the darker one. Pictures coming soon.
  18. Hi guys: Constructions done on Friday Night, Primed on Saturday and today (Sunday) started with the green color of the Camo.
  19. Well last night I work just two more hours, so with that little time I finished all the details of the turret. I just left apart the machine gun barrel so I can paint it easily. Next the fenders and constructions is done.
  20. And finally the Turret in a 75% done. 12 hours so far since I started this project, should stay out of the soccer games on TV jejejee
  21. The Only PE Parts, I just glued it with Carpenter's white glue. Works fine for me, just use a small amount.
  22. More work in progress, hull and turret near complete. both have some plastic line to let you know where to put some pieces, remember to removed it first. Also some plastic putty used here and there to fill some seams lines an other parts on the rear.
  23. I left two tracks unglued on each side for easy release like in the picture.
  24. Next the tracks, after some cleaning I used 96 on each side.
