  • Various items of stowage and spare track were attached at this point.
  • Dilute mixtures of Abteilung 502 “Engine Grease” (ABT160) and “Bitumen” (ABT004) oil paint in enamel thinners were either painted in small patches or flicked from a brush onto the surfaces of the hull and running gear, to represent the subtlest stains or patches.
  • “Engine Grease” oil paint – dissolved in enamel thinners to a much higher concentration – was added to parts of the running gear, certain wheels (to represent leakage from a seal) and parts of the engine deck to represent older oil stains. Once dry, Humbrol “Gloss Cote” was added to it, to represent newer, glossier oil stains.
  • A dilute mixture of “Bitumen” oil paint and Humbrol “Gloss Cote” in enamel thinners was added to the extra fuel drums and surrounding areas to present diesel stains. Later, neat Humbrol “Gloss Cote” was applied over the top of some of these stains, to represent fresher spills.
  • The machine guns and gun barrel end were lightly brushed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.
  • Tamiya “Soot” weathering powder was added to the end of the exhausts.
