The Malcafloor´s turret reminds me of the Germans WW2 Panzer 2&3
Very cool models

Very nice.

However, the heavy drybrushing makes the colors seem 'chalky'. Have you considered either:

1) using a wash to tone the 'chalkyness' down somewhat
or
2) Using a flat color basecoat, and washing the panel lines black?

Just ome thoughts, but the color gradient is very well done, both top and bottom.

[/QUOTE]1) using a wash to tone the 'chalkyness' down somewhat

I use ogryn flash on my battlesuites
but I don´t like it on big surfaces

It would be great if somebody has a clue which wash to use
I use only GW colors
Black wash is to dark

My first Tigersharks in this post were undercoated with chesnut ink
but it was an desaster, since I did not managed to degrease the Tigersharks successful
Now I used first time black undercoat spray

I thought about a pencil to paint the panels lines

I have still to learn many things
Taccom and our german epic forum helped me to increase my skills alot :agree:
but I am still an amateur

Try watered down gryphonne sepia for the top surface, and watered down Asurmen blue for the bottom. Not sure of the dilution you'll need, but start around 1:1 (wash:water) and go from there.

Edit: you could try washing the panel lines ogryn flesh for thr top, and asurmen blue for the bottom, capillary action will draw the wash along the lines with minimal effort. This is best done before you drybrush though.

Thanks for your hints
I remember washing the panel lines on the manta with black wash
then I removed the spare paint with a tissue

Its not the first time I heard from gryphonne sepia maybe I should give it a try

for black panel lines, you could try making a wash using gouache and then using a damp cotton swab to remove the excess after it's dry. Should work for any other color as well.
