Hi all,

I also build from time to time in scale 1/35 and not only the smaller scales .. but here only WW-1 issues.

I want to show here my right finnished Project of a Mark IV "Female" from Takom placed on a diorama with figures and accessories from various manufactures.

The tank was build out of the box with no further accessories bought, aside brass Lewis MG's which were at least superfluous ourchased by me, because the Lewis MG of the plastic kit are very good.

The painting was done exclusively with Revell Aqua colors .... I always mix the right color shades myself ... the aging takes place by means of "Artist Oil Paint". In the figures it is similar, whereby the faces and hands / skin parts are made completely with oil paint based on the Revell skin color as a primer (also Aqua color).

Here some pictures from during the build about how to paint a figure the simple way as I learned it many years ago from a modeller who had won some prices at the old Euromilitair expositions in Folkstone / UK.


Uniform is painted with self mixed colours based on Revell Aqua. The face and hands are painted with normal skin colour from Revell and then it is completley painted with Artist Oil Paint - burned Sienna.




After the oil color has dried a little bit, it is almost completely wiped away with a flat brush and a blunt round brush. Burned Sienna remains so far only in wells and in itself it has changed slightly the color of the Revell skin color.




With oil paint highlights in the face and on the hands are highlighted with lighter tones ... so for example the fingers of the hand, the ankles or in the face the chin tip, the bridge of the nose etc. ...





Then the figure is finished and ready painted, etc. ... where the uniform with oil paint and dry brushing also gets an "aging", etc.
