Ammo By Mig Jimenez - The Weathering Magazine Issue 20 - Camouflage #4519
The latest issue of The Weathering Magazine is entirely devoted to the critical subject of military camouflage. This is where the painting of all models begins. Within this release, you will see various examples of camouflage patterns used not only on tanks, trains, ships, uniforms, but also on science fiction subjects. We will show you how to create camouflage on a submarine - adding zenithal lightning as well as combining it with multi-layered chipping. We will explore how to paint one of the most difficult and visually interesting patterns, the well-known disc camouflage used by the Germans in 1944. Sharpen your skills and learn how to implement colour modulation on a trichromatic camouflage, as expertly shown on the King Tiger model. If someone is still unable to measure their painting skills, we recommend hand-painting camouflage using lacquer paints - something that seems to be doomed to failure, but is possible and gives a very interesting and dynamic range of effects. You will also find two large articles describing the history of camouflage, featuring colour profiles with descriptions that can be a great source of inspiration when choosing a camouflage scheme. Finally, for those of you who are fascinated by the art of figure painting, we will show an effective way of painting the German Erbsenmuster uniform pattern, and for winter lovers we have a Stug III in white washable camouflage. And of course, much more… As always, this magazine explains with detailed “step by step” articles, how to perform every technique as illustrated through high quality photos and concise descriptions by some of the finest modellers in the world. Printed on high quality glossy paper, TWM is a collectible resource packed with useful techniques and inspiration.
