One correction about your info of used detail sets!! I used Extratech PE Parts, as no Resin Detail Sets are available for the Fennek Model!

Hoi Dirk, Thank you for sharing this beautiful Fennek. Those scratchbuild parts are really impressive. I have an unfinished one collecting dust with the same aftermarket sets that you have used, but only having the PE window slats as well. That is actually were the project stalled, as these are very fragile and I have already thrown away one set (but have another 2). How did you weather your Fennek, can you uncover some of your techniques? Your Fennek gives me the spirit to finish mine as well. Jelger

Hoi Jelger, I`ll try to explain my weathering methods done on my Fennek! At first point have in mind that I`ve done a very light weathering tue to the fact as it is a small scale model. I didn`t want to overdo this procedure on this scale! It is important to find the right point to stop the weathering procedure! Take time and don`t try to do this job in one turn! 1)After the application of the basic colours, I sprayed some light clouds of the highlightet basic colour on that surfaces wich would be exposed to the sun! 2) With a tiny peace of a sponch, I`ve applicated some chiped colourflakes ( Darkgrey Acrylic Colour),but have in mind to do this after you have whiped out most of the colours on a tissue! The sponch must be nearly "dry"! Don`t overdo this procedure. Some longer scratches are done with a very small brush with a size like 10/0 3)Thereafter I mixed a high diluted White Spirit and English Red oil colour mixture and applied this thinned wash over the entire model as an filter effect. Let it dry over night! 4) The bigger scratch parts are subtle painted with rusty colours ( Valejo). I used a small brush with the size of 20/0. 5) In use of light redbrown oil colours I`ve added beneath those rustflakes a very small dot of this colour! With another clean brush wich was gently whiped in thinner, I`ve blending this colour dots with a smooth light pressure and moving the brush downwards! Several times I cleaned the brush meanwhile this procedure! 6) With an high diluted light sand colour ( Gunze) I`ve appplied a dusty weathering with my airbrush! Only the parts of the vehicle in the same high of the tyres are brushed in this way. 7)I`ve applied AK Rain Strains for DAK vehicles to simulate subtle rain strains from the bottom upwards. Light sand pigments are used on all horizontal surfaces around all prominent and raised details. 9) A mixture of Burned Umbra and little bit Black oil colours prominent thinned with White Spirit was used to accentuated all rivets and raised details very soft! So that it is in fact all I`ve done on my Fennek. No more no less! Wish you fun and success with your model and I hope I could help a little bit! Please excuse my horrible english, but I can`t do it better... Greetz Dirk
