Alpine Miniatures - Otto Carius, s.Pz Abt 502, Malinava, 1944

Merry Christmas to all!

I finally took advantage of the time leading up to the holidays to present a synopsis of the painting process from the recently concluded assignment from Alpine Miniatures. 

Preliminary shading was done by an overcast spray of white over a dark blue primer base.

The color mix for the drill panzer uniform consisted of Sap Green, Dark Prussian Blue, Purple Madder and White was sprayed on. Convinced that the initial tone was not what I had in mind, I decided to go for a more blue-grey tone by increasing more Purple Madder and Prussian Blue to the mix for the subsequent applications.

Have a great holiday week!

Hi Dr Kim,

thanks for the kind words. Your rendition of the two figures don't look too bad either ;)
