Cortex Can you please mention the color type and numbers used ? I got this model in stash but I found that ready-to-use IDF colors are not very clear to me as I'm not an expert in mixing. Would love to produce nice result as yours : )
20. April 2016 at 05:27:13
Heico van der Heide Thanks guys!
Cortex: I've used these Tamiya colors : one part XF- 20, one part XF- 57, one part XF- 27 and one part XF- 49

I got it from someone else too, so it's not my credit. But it sure works.
20. April 2016 at 21:12:13
Cortex Thank you so much! Written down to model notes : )
21. April 2016 at 07:13:46
Heico van der Heide Little update, you guys awoke me on this project hehe :P
Wash is on, next step will be matt paint. Then pigments and other weathering.
24. April 2016 at 20:07:39
Spanjaard maybe this is a stupid question... but i have to ask. why did you use bright varnish? i know it is used before decals... but you seem have have painted the markings. and there is bright varnish even in the wheels where probably there are no decals. so whey bright then? does it get the wash to work better maybe?
24. April 2016 at 21:01:00
James C Looking awesome!
24. April 2016 at 22:48:21
Heico van der Heide Thanks guys.

Spanjaard, yes that is the reason. With the gloss paint the surface get smooth and it makes for the wash to flow good. Also it makes it easier to wipe away the wash if you overdid it by accident.
25. April 2016 at 09:10:56
Spanjaard thanks a lot.

Anybody got an "extra" drive sprocket for this kit? Or should I just bite the bullet and get the nice BitsKrieg AM parts?

Murad ÖZER Thanks for the comments folks, much appreciated!
Regarding patience, even if you are one of those modellers who wants to get over with the assembly asap, this kit needs none! This practically built itself in a night or two than baam off to figuring out the idf colors... :D
