Tamiya type 74 winterversion 1/35

Recommended Posts

A long time ago I started this one OOB, arrived at the point of weathering, and got some cold feet, so it went to the shelf of doom, waiting patiently till I got some more experience...

 

Nowadays, I don't seem to really get over this point, so it is time to get the cow by the horns and hopefully I don't get thrown over the fence ;-)

 

So this was an OOB build, only thing I allowed myself to alter were the tracks. these were replaced by Modelkasten ones

the kit:

the parts:

and the rest of the tank in basecolors:

as it is a winterversion, some white needs to be added:

so, this is where I got, and where it begins... It will advance slowly

 

but tips on how to get further from here are much appreciated...

Silenoz you wouldn't need any tips, doing great already. built the very same kit some time ago and it was a a lot of pleasure. only problem that i had was finding reference shots, which i hadn't came across at the time (and still got nothing significant except couple of pictures on the net which seem to be taken with a dishwasher) so weathering was open season free for all...

Hey, thx.

 

After a long search I came across these:

 

http://www.toadmanstankpictures.com/type_74_camp_iwate.htm

 

http://www.toadmanstankpictures.com/type_74_camp_chitose.htm

 

http://www.toadmanstankpictures.com/type_74_camp_asaka.htm

 

I use these, there isn't much damage, mostly dirt, but I have never done this before. Hence the question

modelling snow is tricky in miniature. if you intend on doing it check out this blog for a good comparison of the available methods and products: https://minionvault.com/2016/11/05/let-it-snow-yes/

as for accumulated snow in roadwheels, cravices and wherenot iirc tamiya has a lipstick kinda snow product which should come in handy as well: http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/87080weathering/

 

these 2 options are all i am aware of wrt snow.

 

regarding general wx toadmans' pictures are a real good starting point, especially the camp iwate set.
