Scale Modeling How-To: Chipping Waterslide Decals

At some point in our modeling journey, I think we’ve all done it. Build a plastic scale model – Gunpla, Warhammer 40K, Maschinen Krieger, Bandai Star Wars, or anything else – paint it, add weathering, put on the decals… and stand back and admire the work.

Only to realize we forgot to weather the decals along with the rest of the model.

This video takes a quick look at several methods for adding chipping effects to your decals. One is fairly simply, and is appropriate for most every model. A few methods I show are high risk – but high payoff in terms of realism.

Whatever method you choose, you’ll be able to have a cohesive looking finish when you are done with the model!
