Weathering Military Vehicles
By Jamie Haggo (and words from Geoff)
Ok, you may well have seen the great little set of HD videos by Jamie where he takes you through each stage of assembling white metal tracks (by Fruil)? If not, it’s well worth looking at as preparation for this next and final stage in the process – weathering your tracks using Blacken-It.
The challenge of getting AFV tracks to look realistic yet also showing the subtleness of the extra detail incorporated in white metal links can seem daunting. Fear not, Jamie fully explains and demonstrates each step of the process.
You will need to prepare your white metal tracks and so here is what you need to know and do before you get to the main feature!
