In Adam Wilder: Modeling Theoretical Soviet Subjects of the Great Patriotic War – Layering Techniques, Adam Wilder captures a dynamic range of detail and weathering effects on the military vehicles he finishes. He does this using a succession of stages and layers. This is a characteristic of Adam’s work.
Throughout the book, Adam will show how layers allow the modeller to obtain much more of a striking, realistic-looking result. With numerous step-by-step photos and accompanying text, the reader will see how he uses these layers to display, demonstrate, and explain his detailed assembly methods and painting techniques when modelling armoured fighting vehicles.
The steps in this book make a valuable guide for all types of modellers covering an armour model’s construction, super-detailing, painting, and weathering phases. Adam loves the effects and details that can be captured with 1/35th scale armour modelling. In this volume, he uses four models, along with the stowage and crew members on them, as a basis to explain his layering methods. Everyone interested in the hobby of armour modelling will clearly understand how to reproduce these timeless techniques.
We all know that different environments and terrain affect the appearance of vehicles operating in them. Therefore, the characteristics of the intended landscape are essential when weathering static armoured fighting vehicles. The season of the year in which a replica is supposedly positioned allows us to use the elements of earth, water, air, and even fire together to obtain an abstract succession of textures and tones. These textures and tones help us add feeling and depth to a model, allowing one to present effects in every corner and on each detail, creating a finished result that makes us and others want to stop, observe, and enjoy again and again.
We are all very passionate about Adam’s work. His armour modelling accomplishments are always full of features showing another reality our senses can only perceive as art in which every detail counts.
