Thanks Nathan;
I can feel that, wasn´t too keen on spending a quite long time in the cold basement for painting either.
I´ve gone this time more on contrast than on more color shades, not a bad decision I´d say. And faster aswell
Now with some more messing around with washes etc.:


Also note the nose down effect, which shows the two front torsion bars broken. This happened on the real Wittmann StuG and is shown in one of the pictures I´ve posted somewhere in the beginning.

Fabian, that StuG looks awesome. Really great job and inspiration to do an early version. Can't wait to see it finished.

Hi All,

Well, a lot of years without using the brush to handpainting.

I'm done, natural something went wrong just in the end,.. Trying to get a matt finish on my driver and infantry I apparently did it not do something correct,.. Must admit I used the stuff for the first time, and applied it not correctly,...


Anyway and nevermind I finished my build, and I must say I liked it!

The personel in primer


Finish with oil paint


And then the big mess,...


Anyway we go on,.
after a bit of dusting with some deluded Tamiya buff we add some pigments


and the final result







and with the ill fated driver




thanks
