Kampfgruppe Bäke Log Part III - Hairspray is for Chicks
But, I was led to believe that hairspray dissolves with water. I scrubbed the shit out of these vehicles. It was a struggle to get the paint that did come off removed. At one point I even tried using a toothpick to scrape it off.
I was about to give up and drop every single vehicle in the Simple Green. But, I figured I can do that any time so I might as well see how they turn out.
I'm still having a hell of a time with washes. I decided to try Devlan Mud. Works not to bad so far. Basically the same as the BF Shades.
I'm giving everything a coat of thinned down devlan mud. and then going back over some parts with the white. Makes it look kinda dirty.
Because not as much white came off as I had hoped, I decided to paint the entire tracks and wheels muddy. Then i'll put some packed snow here and there. They are actually starting to turn out. I may not dump them in the Simple green after all. At least I know my paint and varnish work well, because I scrubbed the piss out of those things.
Pictures are just at my work station, so they kinda suck. but I'm sure you get the "picture"
