JSU-122S – Part 11: Chipping

JSU saga continues. Over the past days I have added chipping using my usual method of localized drybrushing of mix of Black and Burnt umber from the Winsor & Newton line.

I wanted to make the chips rather heavy (but still realistic) as the depicted vehicle is supposed to have been used for quite a while. Chips added quite a bit of contrast to the model, achieving the above goal. This contrast will likely be reduced slightly by the subsequent weathering steps, so I might need to retouch it again later on.

Once thing I always remind myself of (and always forget) is not to glue in the hatches when building the model – this could help to make the chipping more realistic, as you can then take them out and don’t need to fuss trying to make chipping when they are glued to the hull.
