GUNZE PRODUCTS - WEATHERING
WY04 is a weathering paint set that can be used on various
military models including tanks. This set of paints can replicate
basic oil stains, chipped paint, and rust. Thin each color with the
separately-sold Mr. Weathering Colour Thinner (WCT101/102);
or MIG015 thinner (YAKUMO thinner).
Most German military vehicles showed certain universal
weathering effects, no matter the setting or time of the year. Tanks
or half-tracks usually showed chipped paint, rust effects, or large
areas of fuel stains soaked into caked dust or dirt over top. These
are the weathering effects that bring more life and realism to the
model, and that is the reason why you must pay special attention
when adding them. This universal set will allow you to create
extremely realistic effects on your models, no matter the location
or time of the year in which they are set. The colours and effects
are accurate for the cold Russian winter, the Normandy campaign
or the barren landscapes of the North Africa. Always use this set
in combination with one of the YAKUMO sets for military vehicles
in a specific setting.
FUEL & OIL
Apply this product to the sides of model in the shape of vertical
lines, or add small drops over a surface treated with MIG014
pigment. This effect can be diluted with YAKUMO thinner to create
a softer and more natural effect. Use this effect sparingly and
apply the effect in scale. Let it dry 12 hours.
EARTH & GRIME
A pigment tone to simulate accumulated dirt, or to create a base
onto which you can apply fuel stains. Apply the pigment dry with
a brush to the designed areas. It can also be used to emphasize
shadows or dirt effect on nooks and crannies.
The perfect colour to represent chipped paint effects on your
models, as long as the surface you are depicting was made out
of iron or steel in the real vehicle. Use a brush with a fine tip to
paint the chips on the zones most exposed to wear and tear, You
can also apply the chipping with a piece of sponge or packing foam.
Let it dry 10 minutes. Can be cleaned with water.
MIG-008 - DRY EARTH
Eventually all vehicles rust in specific areas due to rain, snow and
dew. Apply the product in small quantities around small details
such as screw heads, brackets or other fixtures, as well as on
vertical or sloped surfaces in the form of faded lines. Use he effect
sparingly and apply the effect in scale.
