Scratch Built Leman Russ #1 Paint Update

Hello all,

Now that I’ve airbrushed a base coat onto my Rebel Grot vehicles I can start adding detail to each of them individually.  I prefer to do this stage individually because each step feels really long if I’m doing a bunch of vehicles at a time.  This way it feels like I’m making more progress and I can give each vehicle a little more attention.  The first one I am working through is one of the Leman Russ Exterminators.  I’ve picked out  some of the details and have made a lot of progress on weathering.

Expect to see a lot of painted tank pics in the next few weeks!  How do you prefer your tanks, factory fresh or well worn and weathered?

  • Awesome job. The weathering is looking great and I really like how the lenses have come out. The lenses add a nice contrast.

    • Thanks! I do like how the lenses came out, and I’m always pleased with the amount of character that weathering adds. I’m really starting to enjoy the process!

  • Looking good! I’m enjoying this build up!

    • Thanks! It has been a lot of fun to work on!
