A7Vs Just About Finished

Got to spend some time over the weekend wrapping up some A7Vs: more than could ever practically be run at once.  They’re not quite done – after taking and assembling these photos, I decided to take some weathering powders to them, loved the result, varnished them, and therefore need to weather them again. But they’re close.

This is my first spin with oil washes.  I think they worked quite well; I’ll have to play around with them some more at a larger scale, but this is definitely going in the toolbox.

Also, these weren’t taken in the lightbox; just in front of some paper under the arch. When I take their final photos, I probably should throw in a penny or something for reference for my family members who don’t know what (“Flames of War” or “1:100” actually means in terms of scale).

The rough freehand on 503 is a big part of why I decided to go ahead and do transfers wherever possible. There are also some shoddy Vs on the front of 561 – the decals provided were too large and would have run afoul of rivets (certainly more afoul than my brush did).

Not perfect, not by a long shot, but pretty good for a small scale tank.  I’ll have to grab one of the 28mm ones from Trenchworx at Historicon.
