Funnily enough, I finished this tank at the same time I did the Sicaran, but yes my blog has not been getting the attention it deserves, I have been progressing with some of my other models as well, and if you are interested I do keep my Instagram a little more regularly updated. #Phalanxforge
I was trying for something slightly different with the red square, I really wasn’t all that sold but the weathering made it very difficult to modify once I had finished it.
I undercoated both tanks with a mix of browns and rusty oranges then sealed them with a varnish. Once dry, I used the AK Interactive worn effects product through my airbrush before applying the GW Averland Sunset yellow and the lighter Flash Gitz. Both these were the air variety and both flowed beautifully. I followed this up with the stripping and the airbrushed details before starting on the weathering process.
I left it to dry overnight which was longer than recommended but I had put a lot of the weathering solution on so it wasn’t an issue. Following the instructions on the bottle, I added a little bit of water to a brush and started to brush gently against areas I wanted the weathering to show through. I probably went a little overboard in some areas but the effect is brilliant!
