These were supposed to be work in progress shots of my shadowsword. I did not expect them to the the last shots of it. Testors dullcote ruined the thing. The kit is entirely destroyed. I am so mad right now. I was very happy with the progress on this vehicle, and now it looks like total crap.
These posts are pre-washing, pre weathering, pre shading. The dull coat also made the paint crack as it dried, producing a completely cracked look. Just after it happened I grabbed the tank ran to the sink and dumped simple green on it to see if I could clean off the frosting. It seemed to work, but there are now large black spots where all the paint is gone. I think I will just weather the damn thing as if nothing happened as a way to test out techniques. I really had not planned on painting more than one of these, and I had hoped it would be a good center piece for the army. I don't play apocalypse so this was not going to be a gaming piece.
New ONI rating for testors dullcoat: NO AQUILLAS!
