Well the current popular thing at the moment seems to be the 10 year, so I thought it would be interesting to see how far I've improved over the last 10 years (and not how much hair I've lost).
First Dragons 1941 T-34 and Takom's Chieftain Mk.11, honestly for the time period the T-34 was well done, biggest problem is the whitewash looks more like chipped paint than a faded whitewash.
The second is a much more obvious difference, Airfix's 1/76 Tiger I and Riich Models Bren gun carrier in 1/35. Yes there is the very obvious scale difference the size of finished kits isn't that much different. The Tiger? In my defence I was actually going for a crudely field applied whitewash where you can actually see the brush/broom/mop application marks inspired by the images below, my error was in using "over scale" tools i.e. the brush I used was to big and I slopped on to much.
The Bren gun carriers two biggest faults one was mine, I assumed the error in the instructions had been corrected from earlier versions (as Riich had stated) when it wasn't and it was to late to correct when I found out, this then caused some alignment issues. The second problem? Inferior airbrush (read as cheap ebay airbrush) limiting the control available, fixed as of last Monday on receiving a Badger Renegade Krome, which in the three days I've had it I've spent a minimum of an hour a day getting to know it.
