2S1: WIP pt. 2

I've been getting some more work done on the 2S1 "Gvozdika." I painted the vehicle with a blend of rusty, metallic colors using several layers of both hairspray and sponge chipping. I then applied Tamiya Yellow Green paint over a few coats of hairspray and salt to create a very aged, neglected museum vehicle.

I used some pigments and rust-colored paint to create some extra rusty blotches and streaks where water would likely collect and pool. This is most apparent behind the driver's hatch and on the rear of the turret roof.

Here's a close-up shot of some of the rust effects before the green covered everything up.

This is how the turret looks after the green was applied, with all the salt scrubbed off and the hairspray lightly scuffed.

Finally, here are some shots of the majority of the assemblies as they look now. I have added some rust streaks, as well as some hilights and shadows on some of the more prominent paint edges. Now, to assemble the dreaded Fruil tracks... sigh.
