After this they were washed with the the same oil paint mixture as used on the tank and parts dusted with the same pigments.

I must admit that I found it a bit difficult to get some of them to grasp their weapons naturally once they were all painted up. I guess that the extra layers of paint exceeded the tolerances of the fit. Next time, even though it is harder to paint them, I might assemble them with weapons already in hand.

  • Vallejo “Carbon Black” (73116) pigment was added to the end of the exhausts and the surrounding area.
  • The machine guns and gun barrel end were lightly brushed with AK Interactive “Dark Steel” (AK086) pigment.
  • A dilute mixture of Abteilung 502 “Bitumen” (ABT004) oil paint in enamel thinners was flicked from a brush onto the surfaces of the hull and running gear, to represent the subtlest stains or patches.
  • A more concentrated mixture of the same oil paint (together with some Humbrol “Gloss Cote”) was painted on parts of the upper hull, to represent fuel stains.
  • A concentrated mixture of Abteilung 502 “Engine Grease” (ABT160) and Humbrol “Gloss Cote” in enamel thinners was painted to parts of the running gear, to represent oil stains.
