Weathering Andys Sherman 1/16

hm there are basically more steps on zhr spare wheels:

1.1 Primer
1.2 Olive drab ( dark) plus dark grey for the rubber

The 3D printer files i gut from Cults3D


okay here is more trackwork, i painted the base color with a mixture of flat earth and dark yellow from Tamiya and rubbed the color of on the blank parts with thinner:


More track work, i brushed the tracks on the inside so it looks scratched from the wheels, but it was too much on some places so undelying grey is visible, but i guess you cant spot it later:

And some more 3D printing, not sure they look good enough as i scaled them up,
maybe i paint one to see how they look:


Okay now most of the undercarriage is complete :slight_smile:

Step 1:

Step 2:

Step 3

I think the is a color difference between the suspension and the tracks, as the pigment looks lighter then the Tamiya color on the tracks, it is difficult to match, i will assemble all of it then we will see how much the difference is


I assembled the tracks, now the color differences are easy to spot, the dirt on the hull itself needs some work, but as a first shot, i think it looks acceptable. Not sure where the different colors on the wheels came from as i used the same pigment for everything. The track is obviously different from the wheels, i guess i have to rethink the process of painting. In this stage it also looks a bit strange as the upper part really differs from the tracks.
In this scale i think pigments are the best method for weathering as they create a realistic surface which you would not spot on a smaller scale.


Is it possible to rename the topic as we are way over the chiping in the meantime?

There should be a pencil next to the title and you edit to what you want or post you want and I can cut and paste it for you.


Did not finde the pencil, lets rename it to :slight_smile:

“Weathering Andys Sherman 1/16”


All of this happens to real vehicles. Driving on hard surface roads, paved or otherwise, can limit how far dirt, mud, and dust travels up the vehicle. Very slow speeds will do the same thing.


Incredible work!
