Default Tiger I repaint and weather

I've been wanting to do something with my Taigen Tiger as it just looked too new so I lightly airbrushed a coat of acrylic beige to hide some of the factory pained camo. I then used a wash technique that I use for my plastic models to dirty up and define the zimmerit. As well as other detail. I donít have the heart to cut or melt parts of the skirt to show battle damage so this as far as it gets. I will work on the wheels next. I have yet to see it in the sun so I donít know if I will like the finished results before I apply my decals. Waiting for a sunny day

Looks good. Will you add some camo as well?

I may add some of the camo back but not as saturated as it was

I agree, maybe a thinner coat or faded out some.
