Italeri M4 sherman fast build tarp how to.

Hello all,

I have finally got off my arse and did the tarp over the stowage of this Pacific Sherman. I thought I might as well show you how I did it. I used white tissue paper, PVA glue, fly brown wash and Tamiya weathering powder.
fist I cut a piece of tissue paper about 3CM X 3CM.

Then with a bit of watered down PVA glue on one side of the paper.

Then lay it over the area in a not so neat or straight angle.

Once dried, I gave it a coat of Panzer aces old wood.

Again once the old wood had dried (oohh eeerrr) and quick wash of flory modeller dirt brown was applied.

Then (again) once the wash had dried a light brush of Tamiya weathering powder sand.

Final picture, what do you all think?

I reckon these could be used in a dio with the Sherman?

Well that's it, I finally got off my arse and did it! all I have to do now is the base and mad Japanese soldier with a bomb on a stick!

Thanks for looking and any comments more than welcome!

Nice. Really good effect. I wonder if you could use that same effect for chaps in ponchos or groundsheets in monsoon rig? Also, how close will the pole dancer get before getting the chop? You'll need foliage...lots of foliage. Good luck.
