A nice color (and name for it).

Do the insides of the hatches get exterior colors?

Interesting.
I remember one of Skid's masterful snow scenes, and my mind is going a mile a minute on how I would build one of these.
Never tried this scale. Bad enough struggling with my 1/24 stuff.
I picked up a 1/32 fire engine by mistake a while back. Been wondering if I want to try it sometime. But, I still have plenty to do without even further complicated stuff. LOL.
I'll just watch.

Mike..... yes, the interior of the hatches will be done white or cream.

Clay..... 1:35 scale tanks are by no means small and you should give one a try. I know you would enjoy the weathering, beating up and diorama possibilities . Just ask JohnJ..... LOL

Got the red-brown and green laid which makes the tri colour camo complete.





Next up will be brushing the ambush camo!!!  

The purists will lambaste me for this as my research shows that the ambush camo wasn't used until the late war (1941) by which time the J version of the Panzer IV was being used. This is the D version from circa 1941..................... but what the hell!! LOL.

Thanks Mitch.

Paul...... yes, the wheels are a push fit and will come off for painting the tyres.

For better or worse, the ambush camo is done. Looks a bit garish at the mo but it will tone down/blend in when I do the weathering. I'm wondering if I should put in a few white splodges?

Hatch interiors done too and will also be weathered.

I'm not very good with this camo stuff, but the two pics after the ambush camo look identical to the pre ambush camo pics.

The first coat of the base color (Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow) has been applied.  It will get another coat and then a three color camo as was used in North Africa.





More tomorrow.

i did have a bold and cunning plan how i was going to do the tracks but the way the bogies fit ive had to have a mega rethink, so now im this far

plan now is to build up the tracks in sections which can be painted up and fitted together once the rest of it is done

Al - the ambush camo looks great.

John - nice paint job - it almost seems a shame to disrupt it with camo, lol.

Paul - best of luck with the track re-think thing.

sorry to say but im out of this one

made a huge mistake with the drive and trailing sprockets and didnt notice until i had 3/4 of the track links attached.....theres no way of saving it since i had to use CA for the links......and i just dont have the enthusiasm to try anyway

this is two kits in a week thats gone wrong for me.....one was my fault, the other was the kits....not happy
