He comenzado a montar la maqueta del Diamond T969 de Mirror Model con la intención de representarlo en un estado de abandono total. Por eso he decidido pintar una base de óxido a toda la maqueta para que mas tarde asome a través de un tono de Olive drab muy avejentado.
Para la base he utilizado el set de tonos de óxido de Vallejo, empezando por el primer y salpicando luego el color más oscuro de la gama ofrecida en la caja. Luego he repetido la salpicadura con el resto de colores bajando hasta el más claro.
I have started the Mirror Models Diamond T969, the intention is to represent it in a total abandon status. That´s why i decided to start with a rusted base for the whole model so later it can be seen through a very faded Olive Drab color.
For the base I used the Vallejo rust paints set starting with the primer and splattering later the darkest of the colors in the box. Then I repeated the splattering with the rest of the colours form dark to light.
Once the rusted base was dry I applied a coat of chipping medium with the airbrush to the cabin interior.
Once the chipping medium was dry I painted the parts with an Olive drab base and then some heavy lights with lighter and warmer tones of green
When the paint was dry I submerged the parts in warm water and shaked them carefully so the green color would fade away with the chipping medium. At the zones that the green color didn't dissapear i just passed a brush wetted in the same warm water smoothly.
This other part was painted in a very different way, I used the same paints but mixed with turpentine and stencilled with a sponge, before the turpentine was dry I applied some dry pigments to add soem texture, as you can see the result is different.
For the rest of the truck I used the same splattering technique but changing the paints for acrylic washes, this result is different too. The thing that these techniques have in common is that the three of them are very fast and easy.
