I've added some directional chipping to the model, seeing as this is a tank that flies, and will encounter ground fire and all sorts of debris that gets kicked up into the air at close range:

Outstanding work on this. I really like the chipping effect. Not overdone but still shows wear.

Great, great work Chris. The subject of the painting I think is more complicated than your incredible construction. To make it look like I have been in hard matches without it coming to seem "junk" must be very difficult.

Thank you kindly Darren. That is my goal, to hint at wear without overdoing it.

Cheers Sergio! You are right: I am almost over-evaluating each scratch, because (a) they have to appear random, so I have to fight the urge to do the same scratch in the same spot on both wings, and (b) there is a fine line between chipping it without "junk"ing it.

This is my first attempt at doing this kind of intense weathering, so it is going slowly.

Here are some shots of the entire model so far (minus engines and ball turrets of course)

I think it's a good time to stop. It looks perfect as is. Will there be any painted insignia on the model? That would present another opportunity for some judicious weathering. Actually, now that I'm revisiting your photos, a bit of chipping on one or two of the sculptural Imperial Eagles might be in order - unless you're planning on painting them some other color, of course.

Hi Don! Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments.

Yes, I agree. The top red basecoat is weathered enough at this point. Any more would be too much. I still need to do the underside, which will be a tad more weathered, especially around the landing gear. It will be more exposed to ground fire, so would have seen more "action".

I do plan to put insignia and logos on the model. This will be done with some masking fluid. The logos and insignia need to be chipped in the same spots as the base coat, otherwise it'll look wrong.

Lastly, the imperial eagles, the sensors, lights and of course the engines and other metal parts will all need painting. So lots todo still

This is looking really good, I love me some chipping! I started learning some of these techniques on my Scud build, with chipping medium and base coats etc, the results were OK, but that style of chipping relies on a bit too much water to be safely applied to paper models and it was removing too many of my rivets.

I love the look you've come up with here and can't wait to see more.

Thank you for stopping by jaffro, kind words!


Yes, I considered using the salt / hairspray method to do chipping, but a lot of videos out there show that you have to dunk the model under running water while furiously scrubbing at it with a toothbrush (at least for hairspray) - somehow not the best idea for a paper model


Also, a lot of modelers seem to choose sponging instead of masking, since they

have more control, and in the end it takes a similar amount of time with all the drying time required.



Unfortunately I didn't have a lot of time in the last week to work on the model, plus we are going on a road trip over the next two weeks, so it'll be a while before I dive back into this again.

Finishing off the weathering on the ball turrets. They still require the heat scorched effect on the barrels, and a white stripe down the middle (to fit in with the planned racing stripes on the main model).

They remind me of the drones from Oblivion.
