This is awesome. Wish I had a Churchill tank in my backyard, but I am glad my house doesn't look like this one.

The Churchill ................

progress shots from base colour to weathered and detailed, this is the easiest method i've found to get some fairly realistic detail onto a 1/72 model without too much hassle.
I prefer doing this than buying the "off the shelf" weathering applications because all they are at the end of the day is dust, scatter and pigment mixed in a water or oil based wash, plus i have more control over the colour and texture of the weathering and can match it spot on to the diorama base because i use the same material.

base colour (the turret has had a pre wash in black)


gunmetal dry brush


Matt Black and dark brown wash (applied together to blend whilst wet)


dark brown oil paint dry brush


Wiped the surface of excess oil and added brown and rust washes where i wanted to blow loose dust onto to give the ingrained muddy/rusty look, also added some dents and damage.

When models are small (1/43 or smaller) little touches and weathering with paint means a lot. When we see the steps, we can see how it progresses. Thanx

The tank looks great Colin and I like you approach to weathering in this scale. I think I'll give it a try when I re-do my Munitionsschlepper!!

Thanks chaps,  nice comments.

Al..  I've seen so many dioramas where people have used commercial weathering products on their model and then put them on a diorama base that has totally different ground work colour and texture,  the model then just looks "plonked on" as there's no continuity for detailing and weathering.

I've just got to give the diorama a quick blast of hair spray in places to attach a bit of dust here and there to blend it all in then it'll be done.
