This is just a quick and simple SBS for doing a freshly burnt out tank. I'm using just the gun for this and will use a more advanced technique for the rest of the turret. This is basically the same technique that Edi used on his T-34 but with less pigments.
First the primer coat, here AK acrylic gray primer.
Next up I applied a base rust color using Tamiya flat brown.
Next I varied the rust by using two mid range rust colors from Lifecolor. This was thinned 75% paint and the rest water. This was randomly sprayed on the model, but mainly in the areas that I want rusted.
I then heavily thinned some Tamiya flat black to the consistancy of a filter. This was sprayed in the nooks and the gun breech.
To blend the rust colors and black, and also to lighten the rust a bit, I thinned a mix of the AK rust. This was applied as a filter and in two coats.
Now for the charred paint effect I simply used an old brush and very small amounts of AK dust effects in a similar manner as the sponge tech. This was also thinned and applied over this to blend it more and lighten it.
I then repeated this with Lifecolor acrylic dust.
The last thing that I did was darken the edges with AK black pigments. You should use this sparingly and repeat it until it looks right to you.
So that it in a nut shell A very simple technique that is great for small areas and parts, but could also be used on larger surfaces. To get even better effects, layering of different techniques and products can be done. But it does require practice to get the hang of it. Hope this is useful ..

Keep in mind the the way I did the gun is a quick way of doing it with good results. Now if your good with the HS tech, you can do the gray/white scorched paint areas that way too. I would recommend a light random layer, then do some mapping over the HS or AK chipping fluid. Just a tip.
Man I don't know what it is. I keep jumping from one model to another and then I go and start another two today Two hopefully quickies. The damn wheels and indy tracks will slow me down, but then the builds will be done....then I'll be painting three models ;D ;D ;D ;D fun fun fun woohoo let the paint fly
Thanks Dino and Paul. Yep it is very easy to do and the results are ...well , realistic. Like I said, you can take this even further using different painting and weathering products along with various techniques.
