This issue of The Weathering Magazine is entirely devoted to the effects of fading and discoloration. Within this release, you will see various examples of pale and faded finishes seen not only on tanks, trains, and submarines, but also on civilian and science fiction subjects. We will show you how to create faded camouflage on a modern M1A1 Abrams tank and how to achieve a multilayered faded look on abandoned South Lebanese Army’s Tiran 4. We will explore how to paint the forgotten workhorse from a farm – the Case tractor painted with some very interesting tricks. You will also find the Gato-class submarine, and learn how to implement airbrush and chipping techniques to obtain the appropriate discoloration for Naval subjects. For those who do not have much free time for the hobby, we will demonstrate a simple but effective method used to apply a discolored finish on a civilian Renault 4 hatchback, and a faded look on a railway tank car. The E-100 article will bring you shading methods while simultaneously obtaining the faded appearance of this “what if” pale red primer beast. Aviation lovers will find a classic Bf-109 fighter and will learn a laborious but eye-catching process to obtain the distinctive features of desert-based aircraft. Finally, for those of you who are fascinated by the Star Wars saga, we bring you a detailed tutorial for painting and weathering a very unique A-Wing model.
