Default PavelS provocation :-)

Well I know this should be an AVIATION IN SCALE, but I just love this well known curves (shapes)...

It will be positioned on round pedestal in action pose during heavy braking on sand:







It is a very quick build to try pigments - I was too afraid of them to use on last Viper :-/

Very nice build of an excellent kit! Is it going to get weathered?

That looks promising Pavel. I like the agressive stance - it makes it appear to be in motion, and therefore shows off more of the character of the real thing. You should have been in Oslo this weekend - Adam Wilder will be doing presentations on painting military vehicles...

Man that kit looks a heck of a lot nicer than my Tamiya!

And as others have stated, I like the dynamic look of the stance

Nice one, Pavel. Good choice for the Abrams; the newer Dragon kits are the best of any manufacturer. Have the M1A1 in my stash; just wish there were aftermarket decals.

Have you seen what these guys have to offer, or are you looking for somthing earlier than OIF?

Nicely done,Pavel! I agree that the 'stance' is really going to make the display. I can't wait for more!

Thanks for the link Sabre, but I knew about the Echelon decals.

I got a sheet a while ago for our (now relocated) sister unit, but it has font and color issues (not that accurate).

Thank you guys, your comments are welcomed...To questions: it will be weathered - this is the reason I build it, actually - till now it was a piece of cake, now the real challenge begin. Itīs said that I wasnīt able to be in Oslo to see Wilders presentation - it must be very enlightening...!
I agree, if anyone want to build an Abrams - go for Dragon. I have all of boxes (I just love that turbine beast ) Dragon produced - M1 Panther, M1A1 HA, M1A1 AIM and finally this SEP. All is stunning - I never saw any kit like this, there is almost no detail which Dragon missed - LOVELY!

How was it Jens in Oslo??

You pointed exactly what is the best for airplane kit maker to try armors and cars - not only try something different, but mainly (I will use your words) : can benefit from techniques used on these...

The show was very good, and Adam Wilder's presentation was really inspirational. Even bought another armour kit so I could just build something and try out his painting techniques. He's very approachable and was keenly answering questions - a good guy! In short, the technique was painting the hull or turrets or wheels in a dark, appropriate shade. In his example (a German Panzer Yellow Panther turret), a red brown colour mixed with gloss clear. Always mix gloss in the paint to make it go on smoother as well as serve as a better base for oils as well as washes (that go on better on a surface with sheen). Then take a mixed version of the proper base colour and spray the colour on lightly , but spray less on the bottom and in areas with shadows. Then go lighter and mist on more, including the top. Another lighter coat and keep blending the colour to reduce the contrast slightly. Paint some parts a lighter coat, like around detail etc. Spray on a shadow in corners, then finally a lightened highlight coat that tones down the shadows. A coat of clear gloss, then an overall brown wash. Let dry, then ad dots of oil paints, white, yellow, orange, brown, then streak them vertically down on the sides, swirl on the top. Then it was finished painted. Now weathering and chipping etc could begin. It was very effective...

Jens

Hi Pavel:

Great work! Really great what you did with the tracks! Keep us posted! I have a trumpy kit with the mine plow that I work on as a diversion from the other stuff. I still need to build the plow and dirty things up. Good luck on yours! Sweet so far!

Today I was weathering... Only artistic oils was used for now, I know them from air swimming things - it will be the start of weathering job.

1. Sienna natural
2. black for plasticity
3. Umbra natural for details








It is photographed with polarizing filter on lens because it is too shinny, now I will apply matt lacquer before applying of pigments..
