Putting aside the work from AkoHobby allowed me to have more for other things! I will use this account to post my personal stuff.

Approaching the end of the year I have managed to completed another 1/35 AFV kit. It should look better than my first attempt. I will definitely fine more time next year to build more AFV kit!

I also added some shades on my previous 233 after hearing comments.

Hey there!

Very well done. The model looks very good, I like the way you added the worn paint on the edges.

I think there are still opportunities to make it look even better. In my opinion the overall effect looks a bit monochromatic, but this is not hard to fix. The 222 hull is made mainly of plates at different angles and this gives you a great opportunity.

By varying slightly the color tone of the different panels a color modulation effect will make it look more interesting. Also adding color filters will help break the color scheme and add more realism.

I hope you've found these suggestions useful. Just putting in my grain of sand.

Thank you Dave, I am glad to hear your advice! By the way, what color will you use to do the filter on dark yellow color? I will definitely try your suggested approach next time.

Here's something I demoed at one of our meet up.
I use oil paint buff or white to create tones on the surface. :)

Hey Heart!

Maxwinamp's video is very good and gives you an idea of how to add variations wit oils.

For Dark Yellow you can use colors of similar tone just darker of lighter shades. Like white, buff, yellow ochre and even a light brown (in small amounts) will work well. Like the video shows the trick is to blend the paint well.
