Tamiya - US Tank Crew Set (ETO)


Here is my take on Tamiya's most recent (at least to my knowledge) figure painted for the instructional DVD produced by Model Art magazine. I would like to emphasize that NO additions have been made to this figure and the final result is all due to good ol' fashion hand painting (and maybe a spray can or two for the primer).

This instructional DVD was developed for the beginner armor and diorama modeller in mind; in which I will demonstrate a variety of easy to master techniques employed to attain this final result. Topics include proper paint application techniques, choice of brushes as well as some little tricks and short cuts I have developed over the years painting figures. Bear in mind that it is not a continuous record of the painting process but a showcase of techniques for any modeller of different skill levels to incorporate into their repertoire of techniques. From what I understand it will be available region free and presented in both English and Japanese.

The video footage is undergoing editing as of this time of writing - so stay tuned for more updates.


Cheers,

Calvin
