Holy crap!  Those rust effects are amazing!  You did an excelent job on this, and that goes twice over given that it's 1/72 scale.  If I didn't know that and had to guess by looking, I'd have guessed 1/35.  You also did a fantastic job on those figures, a lot of 1/72 scale figures aren't very good to start with and painting them decent can be a real bear.  

 

That's a very solid piece!

Thank you, sir - when I started the model, I wasn't sure I would be able to recover it. It was totally covered in thick email colour.

To be able to restore it up to this point is something I am very proud of. The figures were a challenge as well, and I not very satisfied with the outcome, but then again: 1/72 scale - and I painted them using an airbrush. At least partially. Haha. That was super fun and I helped my try out some things I could not try out on bigger minis. It was a good challenge and I had a lot of fun!

Spectacular rust and decay as always, and the stained mud uncovered by the treads looks properly mucky! Did you use water effects, or just gloss medium to get that wet-mud look?

 

To be honest: It was an accident: I used NOCH water effects, but when I applied it, it was too strong, so I toned it down using AK interactive mud wash. It was too dark, so I used NOCH again, and it was too shiny. So I used mat lacquer, which destroyed the whole effect, so then I applied NOCH again in very small amounts, until it suddenly worked.

The weathering is so believable.  The muddy ground is very realistic.  And I’m drawn to all the fun details all over such as the bullet-riddled walls.  Great job.

 

Thank you. It was quite a lot of work to figure out all the little details. I am glad you noticed them!
