Any questions please ask and any feedback would be appreciated
. yeah those sandbags took me a few hours!! funny you mentioned the barbed wire because as I chucked it on my piece I also thought that it may be too thick. I will try and experiment with one strand instead and replace it.
and as with the mud, it was my first time experimenting with it. I used real mud from my backyard (it was a rainy day) and mixed some paint in it, but I got a question. Is there a way to keep real mud wet (because it was very shiny then when it dried it went to a matt dry mud texture)?
weathering effect on the tank. Funnily enough it was the barbed wire which caught my attention as well. I would stretch a piece of doubled up and twisted cotton between two pins on a peice of wood. With another piece of cotton tie single knots at regular intervals along it's length the place a blob of thin cyano on each knot. When it dried snip the tails of the knot close and you will end up with a very convincing looking barbed wire. Simply twist it around a round object to generate a coil. You might find an application of very watered down PVA will make it that bit more malleable and controllable.
Well done again.
