    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Is there any benefit to doint it after? Seems like it would be more risk with no more or less reward.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Your paint melts into the burn. When a metal part is cut with something like a plasma cutter, if there was paint on it, i.e. a gundam, that paint would char, and still be there in some places. It wouldn't just be silver and black. You could do this by just hand brushing after, as well, but sometimes you might want to add something to the build after you've started the paint process. It also can mean you don't have to mask. Like if you cut a limb on a MG, you don't have to worry about the parts being separate.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    wow thats cool. i love the paint chips in the damage line of thought there. realism is my thing and that would add a awesome level of detail. i cut stuff with a plasma cutter somewhat often and the arc does leave some paint because the paint makes it harder to cut there so yea thats awesome detail. you wouldn't happen to have an example would ya? id like to see how that actually looks on a model.

    The weathering master is mig Jimenez. There are plenty of YouTube videos (located on the ak interactive page) that will show you all sorts of weathering effects.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Is it ok to dry brush over a water slide decal? I'm guessing I should do a clear coat over it first? I'm going for a "soot below the thruster" look with the soot partially covering the warning decal.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Always clear coat. It will help hind the lip of the decal and protect it.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Haha, thanks for answering in both places. Is a gloss coat better (final coat will be flat) or does it not matter?

    Your welcome o wasn't sure how often you checked both sites so I posted in both.

    It should be a flat. This link should help you with any other questions.

    Re: Weathering for space

    If the MS is made of Luna Ti, it wouldn't rust (except if immersed in water). I would also assume they would coat all external armor, plating with anti corrosive coatings. Space is literally a complete void, so any moisture accrued from being in a hot, sticky, hangar (if it wasn't vented, climate controlled, which is would likely be) would freeze instantly, and prob sluff off with the motion of the MS.

    Re: Weathering/Battle Damage thread

    Anyone have a recipe for a black wash they will share?
    Preferably one that can go right on the model without a gloss coat first.
    Thanks.
