Opel Olympia Bronco 1/35 (German Sentry diorama)
« on: 24 Jan , 2010, 15:55 »
   Lets start something off here. ;)
New Bronco puting- Opel Olympia in 1/35.
It will be part of the little diorama, with the sentry box, and few figures.
More on the box, and figures later, lets start with the car.

This is the kit. I went with the full roof version, as the cabriolet is also available.


Heres where i am so far.

Mainly out of the box job, apart from exhaust pipe which was replaced by the brass tubing:


Interior primed, an ready to be painted:


Detailing of the body.
I haave reworked the registration plate brackets, and added Notek lights front, and back.
Stop lights, and rear indicators were removed:

Good job on the body damage.  Its been a while since I have built any scale armor or vehicles.  I'm sure my skills have degraded in the area of simulating minor dings. Very well done on your part!

Thanks Ernest! ;)

Color modulation.
I wanted delicate effect, since i will modulate it bit more with oils.
I used lightened base color, with few drops of medium blue.

Siara, I was wondering what is the size of the model car? It looks like about 7 cm.

Thanks Rokket- unfortunately the paint wasnt good enough. We had lengthy discussion on polish PWM forum about color modulation, and we came to the conclusion, that the contrast isnt strong enough.
To make the color modulation work, and not disapear altogether after the filters, and oils, i washed the model, and started again.
This time i made the sharper contrasts.

Heres how it looks like after the decals, and sealed with varnish:



Fun part next- weathering.
