Tamiya Tank Destroyer Marder M III (#35255)
(Click images for larger view.)
I airbrushed the net type camouflage freehand wishing the whole time I had a finer airbrush tip (which I now do) . For the upper hull design I made a stamp to for the crescent 'jelly bean' camouflage. I wasn't one hundred percent happy with the result so proceeded straight to the weathering instead of applying a gloss coat, BIG mistake I was soon to find. I tried applying a little rust streaking to some of the bolts on the superstructure but as it was directly onto a flat paint it didn't run very smoothly and looks too heavy in my opinion. Next I applied weathering powders which ingrained to the rough of the flat finish and I couldn't remove them, so that looked over done as well. No luck outside? Try inside. I moved into the tank destroyers fighting compartment. This went a little better I dry brushed the ammo storage tubes and radio with a metallic which went well, so I attempted fine painting with the map drawer/cupboard but I was a little heavy handed and it doesn't look as good to my eye. A dry brushing here would of been much better in hindsight. All up while the result was somewhat heavy handed I learned a lot from the build weathering wise.
The above images were taken a couple of years after the build was originally done and some areas have been "adjusted" by natural causes (the family cat).
