Mike .

Nice idea , love it

Ok go into GOOGLE and type in ww2 armour damage .when the subject page come up , click on images . There is plenty to see and to get ideas .The damage can be a little or as severe as you wish .The soldering iron push with the point can be efective for the hit damage .


This was my take on a battle hit .komsomolets-abandoned.jpg

and the photo that I had the idea from .

Talk about saturation bombing , I am completly overwelmed by all the stuff being posted on here . So If any one see this and manages to comment I shall be somewhat supprised surprise, and grateful. smiley

Windows and doors , set too on the late on the 14 th, managed to get quite a bit done on Sunday . So this is where I am up to .



Sorry its on its side , large photo, and I should have changed the shape , but you can get the idea .On the second , ive put some black wash on the back of the glass and the front .Giving it that smoke damage .Also painted the frames a grey, just leaving a hint ok green showing through .Touched various bits around the openings and on the shell damage going up the wall .

Thats it , off to bed to read .

Thanks for looking in , comments if you will .smiley
