Opel done.

More images later. I will try to make a small base for it, just waiting for some components.

I used rather old-school approaches for weathering - oils and a bit of pigments.

Opel progress

As the Big Spring Contest continues I proceed with my entry. The model was painted.

I used pigments and fixer from Wilder to replicate dust and dirt here.

A simple wash using turpentine and L&B oils (brown + black) to accent the detail.
Then the parts of the model were glued and I put a coat of flat varnish on it.

Haven't decided yet on further weathering, but overall it will be rather clean vehicle.

On my bench, April 2013.

Basic assembly of Opel is finished. Now I will wait for PE from Hauler to detail it.

At the same time I started another beast from my stash - old Panhard kit. It was done in 1994! I scratched the storage rack, added some detail here and there. Going to be fun to paint;)

What's on your bench now?
