Hey guys, here's a Falke for AK Interactive's "The Weathering Magazine" volume 3, "Chipping". These are some extra photos I shot that probably won't be used and I figured you guys might like the preview.

Thanks for looking, hope you like it.

The Falke is the only Ma.K I'ld propably never buy. Part as it not odd enough for my taste, part as I've seen too much in the last  2 1/2 years.
BUT this one stands apart! You really showed what I love about your painting skills in this session and it's so unique in many aspects - Kudos, 'dude'

At first I was thinking, "who is this moron out to make friends?" and then I realized its you and that you are a moron I'm already friends with!  :razz:

Thanks mate, appreciate the comments and I see what you mean. It's generic looking enough that it can appeal to people with different tastes, not necessarily the scary dudes just into the Ma.K junk. I've built 4 or 5 myself and still haven't done a Griffon, the final version! Buy, I'll get a kick in the paints for that one when I do it in a year or so.

Ehi pal, it looks like a pile of scrap!  :lol:

Superb work, i like how you keep it bright also if heavily worn down... something to really keep in mind when going with heavy weathering.

Great!

Nice work! I especially like the rusted patch repair on the side.

The faulke is a model I'd love to build, but my young daughter uses up most of my money these days!  :lol:

I dunno, a lot of modelers love a generic looking kit with an interesting shape, just for all the POSSIBILITIES :D

The chipping and overall paintwork looks really good here. Congrats on being a feature in a tutorial book, that's pretty impressive.

Ehi Ultramini, how have you been?

Glad you like it and yes, sometimes we must be careful that we don't dirty too much and make a boring model. For my recent models, this is pretty clean I guess!

Thanks! Glad the patch reads well. Me too, have a little girl too, needs new shoes and clothes every couple of days it seems but there's no better compliment than when she walks in, supervises my work and says, "that's really cool dad!".  :D

Shark dog, that's a really good point. A generic model - and I think that's at least one of the reasons Sherman's and panthers are so popular - is that they provide a kind of standardized canvas to start from and they can hold a variety of schemes and finishes. Some models I work on only have a certain number of poses and schemes and once you've hit them, that's it!

Thanks on the tutorial thing, I hadn't actually thought about it like that and I guess that's right. Great team of people, a pleasure to work with and very inspiring.
