[Gallery] GMC Clubmobile

The next project is finished. At the end of weathering stage, I applied dry mud on the low part of vehicle. The surface was moistured by fixer and then I sprinkled dry pigments. Splash technique is perfect to obtain extra mud effects.
As always, I prepared small diorama with ground and figure. The crew came from Preiser set.

To sum up:
GMC base - Academy
Clubmobile up-grade: CMK resin
Figure: Preiser

All in 1/72 scale of course. I hope you like it.

Must see some shots from the contest. Look on my funpage on facebook. 


GMC Clubmobile - #weathring_effects

Rusty chipping effects were made using the same method as before. Additionally I improved  this technique using tiny round brush giving final touch.

Nice detail is clean surface on dirty windshield, when wipers were working in reality. I used masking tape from Tamiya producer and apply thin coat of Matt Varnish from Mr Hobby on the windshield as you can see in the photo. 

Rains and streaking grime effects were made as ussual - by AK Interactive enamel products.

At the end the interior was equipped with some resin kitchen accessories from CMK and other resin producers.


GMC Clubmobile - #painting_stage2

The gloss coat GX100 from Mr.Hobby was airbrushed firstly.
I used Black Lion Decals set No 72025 to get correct markings, which were common for this vehicle during WWII. It's important to add second layer of gloss varnish to protect decals in the next steps.
Then I applied enamel Dark Brown Wash from AK Interactive as you can see in the picture.
To give more various chipping effects I tapped sponge with acrylics on the surface and cleaning it by flat brush. The airbrush cleaner (Vallejo) diuluted dried acrylics dots and thinned it making various effects. This technique could have other application in the future projects eg. winter camo.
