Added Some Weathering to 1:48 Scale Tanks


I tried something new this week.  I used some withering powders for model railroads to dirty up my 1:48 scale French tanks a bit.  I didn’t want to go crazy with the weathering effects, but I wanted to get some dirtiness to the undersides of the vehicles and the tracks.  When you compare these to the ones in the previous post, you can see the difference.  It is more apparent in person than in the photos, I think.

I also painted and weathered a couple of German Pz.Kfw. I light tanks.  The brown on the gray is much more apparent.

  1. Weathered effectively I think. Feeling sad I would be able to see them at Historicon! Keep on cranking out these beauties!

    Thanks. I will go after the infantry in a big way tomorrow, hoping to have them done for War Horse gaming day in a few weeks. The figures are filed, based, and primed. I have also applied two coats of dry brushing. Now I have to do the faces, helmets, and all the equipment details. There are about 60 figures, so it is a big job.

  3. Hope you had fun doing them!
