Takom SMK

Well SMK my ass!

Built mostly OOB. I didn't like the fender stowage wooden boxes and tools so I added boxes from the spares. Easy build. I worked on and off for about 5 weeks in between other projects. Wads of blue tack mask the wheel mounts.

I always have better luck with gluing tracks to wheels at the start. When I leave rigid plastic tracks off and try to install last, I always run into fit issues because of paint layer build up.

Paint applied to the SMK. All paints are AK real Color. The distressed mottled paint effect was created with the hairspray technique. I used Montex masks for the markings.

Looks good, the scheme resembles the Cold War US MERDC pattern.

Thanks. I agree. I just need to add some light buff patches to complete the look.

Thanks Dennis!

 

I've had some fun weathering the past couple of weeks. Filters, chipping, speckles and pigments.  Still needs some additional effects.
