Emhar 1/35th Tadpole
« on: October 18, 2018, 03:01:11 PM »
Here is something completely different for me. A 1/35th Emhar Tadpole. I am building this for a FB Group Build Group. Tatally OOB and nothing being done to enhance anything  8) This is a BEAST of a kit in MANY ways!

Basic paint is now applied. I went with a brownish Olive Green Next up will be weathering. I have also installed the tracks. Ok if not a perfect job.

Thanks for looking in Ryan! Yes the weathering is a really great part of Armor building...or so I remember from about 25 years ago when I last built Armor  ::) Funny thing, I was in MLHS the other day. There were some Mig and AK Interactive and Valejo weathering paints he had just got in. Damn how things have changed. There were "Pigments" and "Filters" with titles like Kursk Splash on Mud. Have things gone to the point that "Experts" will say, "That Mud Color is all wrong for Earth in Great  Britain" ?

Continuing my Tadpole build although it doesn't seem many are noticing  ;D I have Painted the tracks, and used Old School Pastel weathering with some washes. Just need to add the Mortar and Paint the MGs now.

RAGIII,

Looks good, just the right amount of weathering, I tend to still like the old Verlinden way of weathering.
