As I stated in an earlier post, these models were painted entirely with brushes which I believe are just as effective as an airbrush - at least for this sort of simple colour scheme. I paid particular attention to painting the snorkel exhausts with a base coat of brown, stippling with orange and then yellow mixes before a brown wash over the top.
In fact, I paid a lot more attention to how I painted everything. The rubber tracks were sprayed with a matt black undercoat together with the whole model before a brown wash and then a simple steel dry brush. I don't believe I had ever done that before. I refrained from any mud or dust weathering as they were new to combat, off the ramp into the water and onto a the chert beach.
I pin washed with oils, chipped the vehicles lightly and very lightly rust washed in careful vertical strokes in selected areas. I finished off with an extremely light dry brushing.
All shots are taken in completely natural light as my fluorescent magnifying lamp just blew it's bulb. Thankfully my good mate Grant is visiting in three days with a replacement to the rescue. There are none to be had in Tonga and so I cannot do anything at my work table for the time being.
The other two Churchills are waiting for their exposed tank crew to be finished and I've let the Mk III and Daimler Dingoes lag behind.
