M3 Half-Track - the beginning

Hello everyone,

Before I will share "Pantherwreck" gallery, let me show you my next project. It's kit from Academy producer. The model was upgradeted by few scratch corrections:
-> the brackets of front window armor plate (using copper wire)
-> metal bands around side armor plates on the vehicle's back (poliestyren strips from Evergreen)
-> opened back door,
-> accessories set from Black Dog (resin)

Painting the pantherwreck Vol.8 - burned out wheels

When I was looking for wrecks inspiration,  I noticed that the powder from the rubber rims on the ground is common occurence. It looks impresive and give more realstic view of burned out tank.

I used two pigments: black and white. The first layer was black color applied on the ground around the the wheels. Then I tapped white powder, which gave the main structure. I supposed that it will be enough, but not in this case. The colors were mixed in two containers, so two additional tones were achivied. They were applied in several places. The result you can see on the photos below.
