No airbrush??? Wow, beautiful work. They look much larger than braille scale.

Definately no airbrush lol I have been toying with the idea recently, mainly to try a better stlye of winter paint wear (eg hairspray). I did manage to pull off the same technique recently on a post apoc car by brush painting and trial and error but it's probably easier and more consistant with an AB.

Very nice work, do you dry brush over black on the US vehicles, they look very good and are the tracks just the standard rubber band types?

Hey Gary,

I drybrush but only as part of the finishing. All my stuff is worked up from a normal base colour, shaded and ligthened basically the same as you would when working in 1/35th and with an airbrush. I used to prost shade when doing solid greens, such as British or indeed US vehicle but I don't usually bother now. A lot of wargamers paint by drybrushing successive colour over a black base but you get waht you pay for as teh saying goes and they genearally look like table vehicles. I've always tried to bring modelling techniques down to gaming .... doesn't always work mind you lol

It might be easier to show you what I mean, I'll dig out some pics .........

As for the tracks, the top JpzIVx are Dragon and so have DS single band tracks. The M! is Hasegawa and the TigerII is Dragon also. All the other models shown and solid wargaming castings, ie tracks and wheels moulded in one piece.

A couple of pics to show some of my (basic) steps when brush painting allied solid colour armour. I've written an SBS blurb to go with the Cromwell that I could post if anyones interested.

Anyways it's basically just using a brush intead of airbrush to flick paint on ........

Welcome Brent.
Awesome brush painting. Tell me what paints you use? I see Humbrol enamels and are there some Xtracrylics there?
What's in the jars with hand-written labels? Those are self-mixed colours presumably?
I agree with others comments. They don't look like Braille scale. A tribute to your painting and detailing.

That katchzen apc looks pretty cool, reminds me a lot of an E15 but in apc version.... Very cool. The IS-4 looks pretty cool too.

Sorry I've not been around much gents, had some bad family stuff stack up and attack us so I've had my attention elsewhere.

Anyway had to speed knock this baby out this out this week as a present for a friend in the UK. Had to get it finished pronto as it's going to Salute in my brothers suitcase and leaving next week as he's got two weeks in Turkey on biz first. The quick build was helped by Uncle Tamiya as these 48th kits are pretty much shake n bake, in this case 4hrs to assemble.

As usual it's destined for a wargaming table so no fiddly bits - just a bog standard 1/48th Tamiya M10 with a few crew. The glue is still drying on the crew as I type this so I'll get some decent pics later this afternoon and post them up later. As usual tis brush painted in GW acrylics over a Humbrol enamel primer ....

cheers

Brent

Hi Brent,
Must be honest I always had a slight phobia of 'Braille Scale' , however upon stumbling onto your works my mindset has definitely been changed and I never tire of seeing your beautiful paint jobs (two thumbs up to this gentleman). Plus the minimal use of AM stuff is very refreshing to see.
Always look forward to seeing what else rolls off your workbench.
