This is a Tamiya Tiger I that I built as a change from the usual 1/48 Aircraft.
I painted the whole thing with Tamiya and Gunze Acrylics, and applied a few filters to darken it and tie the paint scheme all together.
I then sprayed MIG weathering powders mixed with Windex onto the lower sections to simulate dirt.
Overall I am pleased with the result. Not having to mask canopies almost makes me want to switch exclusively to armour modelling.
Keep uploading your articles everyone. Seeing the finished product is always a great inspiration for us to actually open those boxes we have on the shelf and get them finished!
