    ToEleven ESB Paintup for tykyu

    Getting some more done on this. Maroon and Red...both layered. The red is MM Insignia red to black 10:1 ish, and the maroon is insignia red to MM dark blue. I don't have an exact mix, but I just try to get it looking pretty dark.

    ToEleven ESB Paintup for tykyu

    Here I mask off the dark gray damage and go over with the light green. To start off I normally mix MM panzer olive grun 1947 2:1 with white. This time I ended up going back and lightly hitting with a darker mix and then with a grayish mist. I kind of lost track really...it's mostly just a feel...

    tykyu's ESB WIP

    In many PC games while the executables are encrypted the assets are not. So after hearing about the games using real props as the basis for their assets I began researching on different game platforms for BF models, and managed to find someone who had extracted them into something I could...

    Tamiya Color - Acrylic Paint question

    I think the tamiya need to be thinned 4:1 thinner to paint. It's been a while since I used them so you better fact check me on that. Tamiya has a thinner that is isopropyl alcohol based. I actually (a while back) mixed up some homebrew thinner with distilled water, alcohol, acrylic retarder and...

    tykyu's ESB WIP

    To be fair, the BF models are going to have fewer polygons than what MR was dealing with. I used some processing to smooth the model out and add back in the finer details. Of course given what MR did to the cheeks on their version maybe it all evens out. One thing I have recently noticed is the...

    tykyu's ESB WIP

    The in game models that weren't too shiny to be picked up were scanned and simplified for the game. I started working with the model in 2016. It took me a while to learn my 3d software and even longer to figure out how to get detail added back in. The dent, ears, and keyslots are my...

    RS Props Lineage Fett Helmet!

    My 1st impression was that the gray was too light, but I can see how it may be an optical illusion playing off of the green.

    ToEleven ESB Paintup for tykyu

    I like to hit the dark gray on the back panels topically. It's easier than trying to line up a 3rd layer of paint color. I do the red/maroon/gray in 3 layers, but the bigger areas of the back panels seem to give me more trouble.

    ToEleven ESB Paintup for tykyu

    Fellow tdh member tykyu commissioned me to do the paint job on his ESB he purchased from me, so I figured I would go ahead and to a progress thread. Predictably I am starting with the back panels. The 1st layer is concrete. The second layer is various mixes of RLM73, Dark Blue, black and...
