The various products of the Weathering Effects range, all of them formulated with permanent pigments and waterbased acrylic resins, have been developed to represent the effects of time and weather on models and dioramas, so that they will look as once their originals in the field. This range of effects includes spilled fuel runnels, splashed mud, lichen and moss on wood, crushed grass stuck to the metal links of the chains of a tank,all the traces of wear and destruction on vehicles in harsh and hostile climate. By placing a vehicle in a realistic setting, at rest for a brief moment, we can tell a complete story about its history of past battles in foreign zones of war.
The range consists of 6 products with a heavy and thick consistency and a slightly glossy finish, ideal for reproducing terrain on vignettes or dioramas, as well as for texture on wheels and the lower part of vehicles, the chains of armored cars and accumulations of mud on the tracks. The remains of vegetation included in some of the references provide an especially realistic texture to the final aspect of the model.
A familiar shade known as Black Earth, especially dark and dense, found in the very fertile soil of Eastern Europe, the Ukraine and southern Russia. Russian Mud contains traces of vegetation which ad a special density and realistic texture.
