Shilka Gets its Paint On

  • move
Ian Barraclough followed the instructions supplied with the Hong Models and painted the Shilka with Vallejo Model Air acrylics. Painting began with sand followed by a loosely sprayed pattern of green, brown and black. Ian then used White Tak to create a mask prior to spraying with a coat of lighter sand.

Weathering was completed utilising Mig Productions pigments mixed with fine sand to match the Afghani version seen on the Prime Portal website.
