After a long sunday night, the old sovjet tank took place on a plinth. Without any big words I want to share the done steps with you. If you missed the first parts, you can read it HERE again.
Here we go....
|More details took place on the body|
|For a damaged and old look, I placed the wheel suspension very random.|
|A next sketch what could happen later on when all parts come together. Not at all as it looks now.|
Thanks Delloyn for the cool looking plinth! This was one of your first. Now it found place under a a nice project :)
Lets start with the basing:
|Cork is a very nice material for basing. The ability to bring it in suitable shapes for every plinth but with a unique random look is a good start to create what ever you want. With some super glue every thing get fixed very fast.|
|Another favourite basing tool for me is "Strukturpaste". (If anyone knows a good english translation, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IT!).|
It is very easy to handle, not to liquid that it runs away and when you placed it anywhere wrong it´s easy to remove. The only disadvantage is the drying time. It depents on the thickness of the putty. Is it very thick you could wait up to 2 or 3 days to work again on it. For example you can buy it HERE.
|This is how it looks first. But one day later I removed the tank again to put more putty on the base. Now the tank has no space between the bround and the bodywork.|
Some more details in the ground to bring more atmosphere.
|Next step was to plant some trees. Usally I didn´t pin it, but in this case the surface on the base was to bumby and the tree to heavy as the tree could stay on the base.|
|Paper-clips, that´s the secret! ;)|
Today I´m finished. Next step is to bring sand and earth on the base. Maybe also some first bigger plants. Than it´s ready to prime. Lately after that I have to think about, how I could paint the rusty parts. But a new in painting talented friend will help me with this question. ;)
Hope you like it, feel free to comment, and ler me know if you have any questions!
all the best
