The "Shades of Chaos" work: Tamiya 1/48.

Chaos, destruction, death.  Law of life.  Inexorable natural laws. Order, civilization, progress. Absurd human utopias. Chaos is the state of maximum equilibrium. Leviathan, Fenrir, Kali, The Four Horsemen, always waiting their time. And it always comes.  Man creates and destroys. Order and chaos. The natural versus the human. Human nature.

Caos, destrucción, muerte. Ley de vida. Inexorables leyes naturales. Orden, civilización, progreso. Absurdas utopías humanas. El caos es el estado de máximo equilibrio. Leviatán, Fenrir, Kali, Los cuatro jinetes, siempre esperando su momento. Y siempre llega. El hombre crea y destruye.  Orden y caos. Lo humano contra lo natural. Naturaleza humana.

Diego Quijano.

GUEST GALLERY: "Rust & Bones" 1/35 by RICK LAWLER

Rick is one of those few modelers that need no introduction, but what you maybe didn´t know is that he is perfectly capable of making one of his masterpieces not only with tanks and figures but also with flying machines. As usual Rick uses a high level of inspiration to create his works: 

One evening while surfing the web I stumbled upon a gallery of photos showing abandoned Russian helicopters; parked and left to the elements in what appears to be inner-city parking lots.  The thought of all of that high-tech hardware simply "put out to pasture" is quite mind-boggling if you think about it.  Cold war weapons reduced to discarded carcasses of aluminum and fading paint.  And there is the key, the faded paint!!  The colors and patina exhibited on these forgotten beasts is amazing – yes, in my case irresistible.

In my opinion, this is one of the best weathered models I´ve  ever seen, no doubt. And you?

The T-34 project (III)

The work in the tank is almost finished. There is only some local effects to add like some black stain in the exhaust zone and some darker streaks here and there. It´s time to finish the base:

Weathering some elements of the base. These bigger elements need special attention:

The T-34 project (II)

I have decided to paint the tank before completing the base. The 4BO Russian green is painted with the modulation set by AK. I didn´t need a full modulation this time so I only used three shades of the set to get a cenithal effect.

The remains of white paint is made with the hairspray technique. After the chipping with dark brown is time for a black wash to enhance the panel lines and raised elements.
