Default 1/48 Panzer IV Ausf. J

As a quick break and therapy from starships, I've pulled a previously started Panzer IV kit off the shelf to get my hands dirty in some real armor weathering. I've been watching a ton of tutorials on the mig paint products, chipping and rust effects and dove right in.

The first step was to spray the hull in primer/rust colors. Then, a layer of chipping fluid before the camouflage paint. A brush dipped in water 'chips' the paint coat, revealing the bare metal look. First time I had done this so I was pleased it worked.
