M1A1 Abrams

The kit is the DML M1A1 and the figures as Alpine and some other (czech?) company. Accessories were mostly Tamiya and what was provided in the kit, some Accurate Armour bottles. The building was part Verlinden, part scratch. Most of the rest was scratch.

About Stefan Halter (Dangeroo)
FROM: ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

I'll build just about anything military related that gets my interest, though most of it is 1/35 scale WWII Allied.

I really like the dust effects with this Stefan. You seemed to blend dust and scratches really well. Normally dust effects just fade everything out, but I like the scribes you performed. Did you use pigments? I usually will do either chalk or drywall compound, but whatever you did is neat. Thanks for sharing. Mark

Stephen, I agree with Mark that your dust weathering looks very nice. The only thing I would add is that the stowage should have varying amounts of dust on and in them, too. The dust got EVERYWHERE very quickly. Well done, sir!

Great Job Stefan!!!!! You are getting real good man. I like the figures and the dust on the tank, is it AK?

Mark, thanks for getting this one up. The figures look a bit pale in the pics if I may say so... The dust was MiG pigments with water and once that was dry I brushed it over with a dry brush. Jeff, you're right, I actually had all the canvas stuff off when weathering, I should have added some dust there too. Greg, this was made some time ago (2009ish) and sadly my own impression is that my skills have deteriorated since. Need more modeling time!!! Cheers! Stefan
