A brief history

sdkfz7_1Dragon has nailed this half track version and has since put out various types.

As usual the vehicle was primed with Mr. Surfacer 1200 shot through my Iwata eclipse and thinned with Mr.Color leveling thinner.

An overall coat of Tamiya German Grey was given to the entire vehicle.

Two coats of treses two hairspray was decanted and shot through my air brush for better control.

The main color wss German dark yellow mixed with flat white and some yellow to get the right color.

All paints here are from Tamiya.

Once dried I shot a thin coat of tamiya clear yellow over the entire vehicle to give it a deep finish look.

Now a stiff old brush in warm water (which works best) to create the worn and distressed look of the prime mover.

Filters of raw umber now added to the vehicle.

Pin wash of burnt umber added to panel lines and recesses.

Vallejo desert sand wash added to high traffic areas.

After market shells and ammo cases from Verlinden.

Jerry cans from Tasca

Instrument panel decals from Archer
