  • Paint chips were simulated using Vallejo Model Color “Basalt Grey” (70869), applied with a sponge or fine brush. This was meant to simulate the presumably grey colour underneath the desert colour paint layer.
  • The exhaust was painted with Vallejo “Black Grey” (70862) and the various colours of the LifeColor rust set.
  • The entire model was washed with a dilute mixture of Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” oil paint in enamel thinner – the excess being cleaned up with a dry brush or cotton bud.
  • The spade handle was painted with Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber” oil paint, with the excess wiped off with a cotton bud, to simulate wood effect
  • The wooden floor boards with stained with Winsor & Newton “Burnt Umber” oil paint.
  • To simulate a degree of paint variation and fading, dots of oil paint (Winsor & Newton “Raw Umber”, “Payne’s Grey”, “Transparent White”, and AMMO Oilbrusher “Medium Grey”, “Yellow”) were added. The dots were drawn on the surfaces with a flat brush.
  • The entire model was sprayed with a 1:2 mixture of Mr.Color “Flat Clear” (182) and Mr.Color Leveling Thinner.
  • A 1:1 mix of Mr.Color “Tan” (44) and “Radome” (318) as a 5% solution in Mr.Color Leveling Thinner was sprayed in light coats on the outside of the vehicle and wheels, to simulate a dust layer.
  • The ends of the exhausts were treated with Vallejo “Carbon Black” (73116) pigment.
  • The metal part of the spade was treated with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.
  • The wheels, suspension and sides of the vehicle were brushed with AMMO “North Africa Dust” (A.MIG-3003).
