Thank you! This little model was completed a long time ago (around 2004). I am presently doing simple wooden bases for all my 1:72 military vehicle models and I decided to make a small tutorial over at my blog. If your interested, check it out!

Schöne Review! Das (erneut) falsch dargestellte, Turmmontierte Cal.50 (wieder als "Infanterieversion" angebaut...ohne Fernauslösemechanismus) sowie die mangelnde Schürzenaufhängung könnten noch zu den Kontras hinzugefügt werden. Die top in den Maßstab umgesetzten Maße des Originals wiederrum zu den Pros...

Nice Review! But you could add the (again) wrong shown turretmounted Cal. 50 (again the "Infantry version without the remotedevice to fire it from inside the turret) as well as the lack of presentation of the skirthangers to the contras. Instead you also could add the dimensions correctly converted to scale in this kit to the Pro´s...

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, 03:27
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.

Thank you so much! Written down to model notes : )

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, 18:07
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, 19:01
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.

thanks a lot.

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
