Quadruple Threat! Custom Flakpanzer, 251/22, Panther, Tiger!

Post by flyboy_fx » Sun Jun 19, 2016 9:03 pm

Hi everyone! I'm appearing once again to show off some customs. School takes up a ton of time, so I haven't been able to model as much as I'd like. These were all finished at the same time. Enjoy!

Also, I will be listing these for sale on ebay with $.99 starting bids to help pay for college stuffs!

Beautiful! Would you be willing to share how you did the battle damage effects? Dremel, putty, what? Looks great!

Thanks guys!!!

All the chips are hand painted. For some of it I use a sponge with controlled application. Little is better than too much!

You have to think in terms of how the paint chips. First the green chips away, then through the yellow, maybe primer, then to the bare metal. I paint yellow chip marks first, then inside some of those I painted bare metal, and for a better effect I hit the very inside of some of those chips with graphite.

So the glance wound on the Panther mantlet is painted on? Wow!

That is true dedication the cause. It would take quite a few drinks before I took a torch anywhere near my models...

..but seeing your work almost makes me want to try. They really look stellar!

As a matter of curiosity, how did the driver enter and exit his position in that half-track with the huge gun in the way ?
