Video masterclass: How to Weather Scale Models

I've got two photos to share with you today. First up is the BEFORE photo of my 1/35 Italeri Sherman tank. Next is the AFTER shot.  Quite a difference. And it's all down to the weathering techniques I share in my two-part weathering video tutorial series.

Back when I was starting out making models, I would have killed for this information. This is effectively a half hour masterclass in weathering scale models.

Part 1 dealt with the salt technique, washes, chipping and rust. Now Part 2 goes into how to weather scale models using pigments, adding mud, unifying the overall tone, some final paint chipping, and the finishing touches to bring it all together.

Here are the two completed videos.

Part 1: Salt technique, washes, chipping, rust

Part 2: Mud, pigments, tone, chipped paint, finishing touches.

There's a lot gone into these two videos, and the building and recording took place over a couple of months. If I may toot my own horn for a moment, I think it's paid off.

Until next time,
