There are many "how-to" books in today's world of scale modeling, but none has covered the "why's", as well as, the "how-to's"… the artistic approach… until now. In TANKART, a painting and weathering guide book series, the focus is on taking real-life observations of paint and weathering effects and incorporate the best techniques to replicate them. Within this second volume, WWII Allied Armor, the author will go deeper into his thoughts about why of certain steps as it relates to Allied camouflage schemes. To bring these ideas to life requires a spectrum of processes and techniques which are covered in great detail; including the Hairspray Technique and the new Oil Paint Rendering -- plus Pigment Applications and Painting Olive Drab chapters that can be combined in an layered array to tell the story of each model. To bring these thought processes to life requires a spectrum of techniques which are covered in great detail; from the Hairspray Technique to Oil Paint Rendering; techniques which can be combined in an endless amount of combinations to tell the story of your model, to make each model as unique as it's real-life counterpart. This book begins a series which will define Mike's modeling and hopefully reach the many hobbyists searching for new ideas and inspiration to forever improve and achieve upon with their own work.
