D-Day Commission Project.
A whole bunch of obstacles, 2 Boats, and 4 DD Shermans.
Obstacles were pretty easy. Painted them all German grey, and then added some rust to them. Did a fine dry brush of gunmetal, but I don't like it. Gun metal, is too....sparkly. Seems more like glitter then paint. Probably why most people are starting to just use German grey instead. But I find German grey too blue to look like metal.
The "skirt" turned out a bit dark, but after a "wet" dry brush...(does that make sense?) they turned out pretty well. I didn't clean off my brush as much before dry brushing. This made streaks along the smooth parts that normal dry brushing wouldn't do. To me this made it look way more like cloth and a little dirty.
The damaged part of the boat turned out pretty good, discouvered my new favorite tool, the Dremel! I used German Grey, black, and then did a highlight with a white pencil crayon. Didn't want to ruin it with gun metal. Glad I did the obstacles first.
Sorry i couldn't get them to you this weekend Shawn.
To complete my part of the project I have 2 destroyed Panzer IVs and rusted out Somua to do.
