Okay, so I was asked how I do my bases. Warning, this post is very picture heavy.
First off, I start with a coat of Desert Yellow in spray primer form.
Then I do a wash using Strong Tone (from the bottle as opposed from the can).
Next up, a drybrush of Vellejo's Iraqui Sand:
Then I use some watered down Elmers Glue and a brush to apply it. Then I dip it into my flock bucket.
Then I go picking through my woodland scenics bags and pull out some desert brush and green brush pieces to superglue to the base.
Then I finally glued on the finish model...which is a bit of a shame as it covers almost the whole base and all that work. :)
This was my first medium tank to finish and I think it turned out okay. It also matches pretty well with the recon tanks I did earlier.
Hope you enjoyed it. Till next time.
