Tamiya StuG III (early) with Legend stowage - lost JL's style

I lost JL's style partly because my first mix of armour yellow was more like buff. It gave an interesting result, but by the time I added more yellow to the mix I was covering much of the underlying shades and contrast. It got worse as the overspray monster took hold of my airbrush whn applying the red brown. Subsequent reapplication of the yellow covered what remained of the experiment. Not to worry - I've learned afew things and now have the opportunity to build the late version in all-over faded armour yellow!

I used XF-79 Linoleum Deck Brown for the red-brown. The overspray is clear here, as are my efforts to hide it with more yellow. No sign of the underlying contrast any more.

I used XF-52 Flat Earth, XF-72 Brown (JGSDF), and XF-78 Wooden Deck Tan for the dirty areas at the bottom of the skirts and running gear.

I'm hoping the filter and oils will blend the overspray together.

Don't know whether the track armour was also painted in yellow or more likely a conventional track colour. Thoughts/suggestions much appreciated.

Now on to some quiet, spatter-free hand painting. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.
