hasbro AAT custom paint

Tried my hand at some custom paint job on a Hasbro Star Wars (The Clone Wars) AAT toy. I got lazy so I didn't really re-paint the tank. I just added the chipping, shading, drybrushing, wash, mud on top of the original paint. I feel the weathering is a little heavy handed but I'm pleased with the results. Gonna do better next time, I've got AT-AT waiting in the wings.

1/72 US Tank Commander Vietnam

Back to more normal subject matters. A 1/72 US tank commander for the vietnam war era. I chopped up a resin cast of an Esci US Vietnam war figure. I then attached a head from Fujimi aircraft carrier crew and arms were sculpted from super sculpey. Magic sulpt was used to fill in the gaps and modify the helmet.

Rin Farrah (Fawcett?)

A nice little white metal figure from Soda Pop miniatures. It's about 32 mm in height (a little over an inch) and a delight to paint. I used mostly acrylics with just a bit of oil drybrushed hilites to smooth out the skin.
