Painting and Wargaming (mostly) Flames of War in South Africa
Very nice. I like the yellowing at the panel edges.
Lovely work. I've got three of these in the lead mountain, nice to see how they should look!
Very useful in the game these toys. I had to shave the edges of the gun shields to get mine to fit. Yours look most excellent. cheers
Same here, the gun shields required trimming in order to fit properly. As always, dry-fitting saves a lot of hassle later.CdlT
Really nice finished effort. Yet to see these on the tabeltop, but they look like they'd be nasty against my infantry companies.
Top work .Regards Furphy .
Look great, what colors are you using?
Thank Richard.The colours were an overall spray of VMC Extra Dark Green followed by AK 715 Resedagrun painted as panel highlights, the latter being a little too light and pale for my liking but I wanted to try it out on a few models anyway. Light gloss varnish, then masking with a few pieces of masking tape on the hulls and some blu-tack for the road-wheels to preserve the green. Then overall spay of MiG 902 Dunkelgelb followed again by panel painting with AK 714 Dunkelgelb III. I leave to dry, remove masking carefully, then paint tools and stowage, etc. Overall gloss varnish again over everything, apply decals, seal them, do a bit of chipping, then pin-wash with MiG Wash for Dark Yellow along deatai line on the vehicle. After dry for a couple of says, matt varnish.The gun/crewman combination was painted separately and glued-in later, much easier that way as one cannot paint it properly if it is assembled.CdlT
