Kit Producer: Italeri
It's new tooling, reference 7029. OK, probably it has several mistakes and errors, but frankly, I was desperately in the need of a cheap model (I paid 8 euros) and "quickable" to build...Something to leave apart PE sets, resins, etc., etc. I build it straight from the box, except the smoke dischargers at the turret, which I "opened" with my X-Acto knife.
For the painting,
I primed the whole model with Tamiya Spray Primer, and then I
applied a light coat of XF 10 Flat Brown.
For the cammo scheme I was inspired by an illustration from French
artist Jean Restayn, at "La Poche de Falaise", Armes Militaria
Magazine Hors-de-sÚrie nº 46. I applied the cammo in order to
represent an hypothetical vehicle, not a determinate model. And so,
there're the colours, also from Tamiya acrylic range:
For the German sand XF60 Dark Yellow with XF2 Flat White, XF 64 Red
Brown, XF 61 Dark Green with a few drops of yellow.
I applied the trick from Mr. S.Zaloga of mixing the Red Brown and
the Dark Green too with X22 Clear.
The exhausts were painted with several Vallejo acrylics. And them I
applied too several drops of black and brown at several points, due
to weathering, etc. as the bumpers, etc.
A real funny model to build!!!!
