The innovative range of Weathering Effects offers the modeler a new medium for depicting the effects of exposure to weather and extreme climates on vehicles and armor. The references of the range are formulated with permanent pigments and water based acrylic resins, and offer a great variety of scenic possibilities such as the creation of spilled fuel, engine grime, lichen and humidity, and crushed grass, mud splashes and fuel stains, each developed to represent a specific effect on vehicles and armor and to show their operative history under harsh conditions. The products can be applied directly on the base, dry rapidly and most of them permit immediate further manipulation with the exception of Thick Mud which needs a more extended time for drying completely. Tools can be cleaned with water and soap.
Oil stains are common around engines, hinges and all the moving parts of vehicles. The shiny look of the stains give the model a realistic aspect. Oil Stains is applied in the shape of spatters, drips or traces in specific areas.
Fuel Stains - In combat, the refueling of tanks and trucks took place in the field, and the crews used pails, funnels, sections of hose, etc. for the job; the fuel was spilled all over, leaving characteristic traces on the vehicles.
Engine Grime - On the surfaces of the engine block, inside the engine compartments and even in areas where rests of fuel and oil accumulated, dust and dirt created a grayish layer of dust on the vehicle surface.
Diesel Stains - The stains of gasoline and diesel oil do not have the same color: Diesel Stains reproduces the exact orange shade of this fuel, the streaks, traces and splashes caused by refueling with diesel in the field are perfectly reproduced.
Petrol Spills - Reproduces the blue-black shade of intensity observed in heavy oils, lubricants, on barrels in a truck bed and round marks left by barrels on the ground, left by the flame throwers and combat vehicles.
Brown Engine Soot - Brown Soot accumulates on engine bulkheads, on compartment walls, on the wheel housings of trains and underneath the carterand crankshafts – a combination of dirt, rests of engine oils and dust.
