I should add that this is going to be from Das Reich during Kursk. It's going to represent a new tank at the opening of the battle, so not a lot of wear and tear will be there.
I'm up to needing to add my green camo, but everything is finally done. It's going to be sprayed as you see it though I will be removing the tracks, mains and spare and the front shovel, but all else stays. I was after a pale/cream base. I found that dark yellow is to dark, see tool box and turret vent cover that I chose to paint in different shades to break up the color, which I'm sure will darken once it gets washed/filtered.
Not happy with the exhaust though I'm not going to change it. Learned I should have left it off to sponge paint, though there will be camo on them, so it should be fine. I wanted it to be lighter in color. A NOTE on this; I'm going to be doing the salt tech. and I need to know if I'm in the right place of mind. I take it you put water on the exhaust, or is it glue?? put the salt on, paint, when done, knock the salt off or do I just wash it off??
I see in the pictures I need to add more silver to the tracks. Thought it looked fine, but I see I need more. I wanted the spare track to represent a piece of track that was pulled from a spare used track. looks like this side needs a bit more dirt, maybe a rust wash on it??
Thanks for looking and any comments would be appreciated.
