Sherman hull texturing

Here's the main hull and turret painting and texturing. The colors don't show fully true due to my lighting. The hull is a little greener than shown and some highlights show way too green, but you'll get the general idea of where i'm going. This is all brush painting.

Re: Sherman hull texturing

I like it, nice and tight.

Using Mr Surfacer or something else?

It looks like will make a great kit indeed.

Re: Sherman hull texturing

The texture is from Golden brand (available at Michaels) fiber paste. Comes in a fairly big jar, which really helps.

Re: Sherman hull texturing

The stuff you use gives a nice sand-cast look to the parts. Very nice.
