Well the 2nd stage is in the books.
Looking into ways to do winter whitewash, I talked to a friend, Chris Allen, and he suggested hair spray and then scraping it away. Apparently hairspray dissolves with water.
So, I've sprayed all the models in hairspray, and I've airbrushed them all white. Tomorrow i'll try scraping some white paint off.
I noticed a lot of modelers either leave space or scrap paint off where the decals will go. I've decided not to do this. In my research of the Kampfgruppe Bake I found that the 503 heavy Battalion was attached to them. In every picture I found of those tigers, all the numbers were on top of the whitewash. But we'll see how it turns out.
