Greetings from Omaha
Permalink   


Been building WWI models since I first found the Airfix Mark I in the late 1950's.  Recently finished the Schneider and St. Chamond (photos attached) in 1/35 and posted photos on Track Link.  Will be using this site much more due to its focus on what I'm interested in.  

Just received the Takom Mark I Female and intend to modify the kit into a Mark II.  Still have the FT-17 to build and the Takom Mark IV.

Welcome aboard Charlie, Very neat models there. May I ask which brand of paints you used ?

Paul

The base coat (the light tan on the Schneider and the blue-gray on the St. Chamond) is Tamiya, airbrushed.  I then use a pencil to draw in the shapes.  Vallejo acrylics are then brush painted.  After the paint is applied I use a Micron .005 black ink pen to outline the colors.  Then everything is airbrushed with a light coat of Dullcote.  

Hope this helps.

Charlie
