Sd Kfz 182 Pz. Bef. Wg Tiger Ausf. B: Adding Texture

I will try to update my build a little more with more steps involved. As you can see with the last post ,all the photo etch and texturing  on the upper armour has been added , this was done with subtle Gunze 1200 and 500 and some Tamiya Surface primer. This time around we add texture to the bottom half of the model where  accumulation of dirt and grime reside. This area is a little more pronounced therefor we use some baking soda with the Tamiya surface primer.

We utilise a very used brush , something that we can toss after this application. Cheap craft brushes for these specific tasks can be obtained at Wally World or Michael's or your fav Brick and Mortar Craft Store.


Using the surface primer , blot some on and stipple it onto the area needing the texture. Try not to do an area to large for this stuff dries fast. Then sprinkle on some baking soda , Let is set for a minute or two and blow off with your air brush or lungs.
Areas that will accumulate a large amount of crud add some layers of the previous steps.

 Don't forget areas that are easily forgotten, like the undersides of fenders .

Let all this work sit for a time before progressing to the primer coat, which will be covered next.
