More Involved Camouflage

Since my previous build project was such a simple paint scheme, I did want to post just this one example of the Hurricane I’m currently working one.

On a project like this its common for masking to be a very time consuming process!

  1. Nicely done. I just picked up some tack not too long ago and will probably use it on my BTR build. You’re just using masking tape to fill the gaps?

    There’s a guy online and he uses plastic bags. Not like it makes a huge difference, but interesting people using their own variations on the same methods.

      Yeah it is interesting how different things work for different builders.
      For the “squiggly” types of camo I like the Blu Tac for defining borders, and then just use the cheapest masking tape to fill in. For sharp edges I like Tamiya’s masking tape; but its expensive! I try not to waste it for things like filling in spaces.
      I’ll look forward to seeing how your BTR comes out.
