thanks one and all for the kind words and encouragement, especially with the quality models you guys produce.
i am wondering about using that section of cut wall in the diorama scene as a large broken piece. i may try to use this piece in a realistic manner somehow... i shall ponder this element. cheers, mh.

thanks again guys. if it's an consolation Trackpads, i did not expect the Miniart building to be such a difficult build. and i had my lady telling me "don't frustrate yourself with a bad model kit." i had to tell her it wasn't a bad model, there are no bad models... just models that don't want to get put together good
though there were moments when i thought it would be less time to build something from scratch, once the detail were added it began to show its merits. happy modeling. mh

UPDATE: Painted Jagdpanther Interior
hello once again,
first things first, really want to thank everyone for the great replies and words of encouragement. this little diorama is moving forward once again with the Jagdpanther interior painting now completed and ready for more assembly. here is some information with the pics to explain some of the process:

the base ivory colour is a mix of Tamiya white, buff and yellow acrylics. after sealing with Future i applied a oil wash of Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber and Black to the corners and highlighted the large panel areas with Titanium White and Yellow Ochre oil paints drybrushed on using a large flat brush.

the interior was painted ivory as well as Model Master Anti-foaling Red acrylic for the primer areas. again oil washes and highlights were applied as above. i added chipping with a 3/0 brush using enamel raw umber.

you won't see much of the engine radiators but i had mixed some grey oil paints for the radios and such so i went ahead and drybrushed them to add some detail. the front area won't really be seen so i only roughed in some of the wash effects.

the gun breach got more care as it will be easily seen from the three open hatches. again the chipping was applied to areas prone to wear.

the metal for the gun breach was first painted NATO Black and then highlighted using various grey hues of oil paint. highlights were then done with drybrushed silver. only problem is you have to leave the oil paints for a couple of days to dry before you can proceed but i am an old school fan of drybrushing with oil paints.
most of the elements of the interior were painted with heavy contrast between washes and drybrushing because they will be under poor lighting conditions when viewed from the completed model. this will allow the interior to be interesting without looking out of scale.
hope you enjoy, next update will be the Miniart building going through its multi-step painting. happy modeling. cheers, mh.
