The other day, I happend to find in a dollar store two packs of green plastic army men. And in each pack there was a green tank.
So, always looking for new armor I figured that these tanks would be a good fit, so for 2.30.. I got the bags. They also came with a missile truck..
I also been wanting to practice my camo painting with my air brush using tape masking. Figured these would be as good as any before I start on my good models.
|Sprayed them with a base black coat|
|I put the truck in so you can see what it looked like before paint.|
|Side view mask|
After I had that mask applied, I then sprayed everything with a dark grey color.
|Here is the darker grey color, with the added masking.|
|I used long triangle patterns in the tape.|
And now for the reveal..
|When the tape was removed.|
|This is how it looked.|
|Using the same technique, I painted a Matchbox "Bat"|
|And now over time I will pick away at the details.|
