Introduction: Panther G Rc Tank.
Hello, In this project, I did the basic weathering on the Panther G Rc tank 1/16 scale from Heng Long. This time it will be basic, just a little bit of weathering. It fun and looks realistic to the scale model. The step is simple and basic and easy to do. The result looks great. Let’s begin.
Supplies that you need to do Weathering Panther G’s project.
1. Heng Long Panther G rc tank (or other models)
2. Arcylic paints, (white, black, dark yellow, yellow, red, brown), paint tray, water spray, and paint brushes different sizes.
3. Spray paints (Surface primer: red-brown) (If you want to be correct in color, need to buy Tamiya’s spray color)
4. Tamiya weathering master set C, spray paint flat black.
5. Masking tape, sand paper, baby oil, and paper tower.
Step 1: Disassembly the Tank.
First, I need to disassembly the Panther G rc tank by unscrew at the bottom of the tank, it should be about 6 screws. I took the turret’s piece, upper hull, and lower hull with wheels (bottom part), then disconnected the wires ports. Next I remove the wheels and use masking tape, tape at the edge of the wheels and it should be ready for paint.
Step 2: Basic Paint and Hand Paint.
Then prepare the Panther G for paint, I use alcohol to clean of the grease and dust. At first I spray paint surface primer (Red- brown primer) to the turret, upper hull, and the lower hull of the tank. After it dry, I draw the line with white chalk to make the pattern of what color will be, by looking at the pictures. Next I hand paint white paint on the tank from the turret and upper hull. Then I add the dark yellow apply on the white paint and leave a little bit of the white paint on both side. I do throughout the tank. Next I apply the decal and numbers on both side of the turret. Then I mix the dark brown (Burnt S) color by adding water and apply to the tracks random and next is too apply Raw Sienna with water, by using the smallest brush, I paint over the dark brown, I also paint on the edge and side of the track as well. Next I assemble the tank, so that I can see what I should adjust to make it look better. I attach all of the accessories that come with the tank such as the spare track, tow cable, tools, and others (I spray matt black). I also paint, all the wood handle look like wood and other things paint the color as it would be. For the exhaust pipe, air intake, and radiator fan, I paint black and apply the body oil to make it shine.
Step 3: Basic Weathering.
Then I use Tamiya weathering master set C (Orange rust) apply to high light some areas such the track, tow cable, and some metal parts that expose to the weather, It looks real. I look around the tank and paint more to make it look realistic.
