Panzer IV Paint

Back again, after the last touch up's it was time for paint. I used the AK CM set but i have to be honest that next time i mix my own paint again. Next step is couple of thin layers of thinned buff/sand yellow to make the Panzer more yellow without loosing to much of the CM

Panzer IV

Since i  have to wait for the last figure to finish the Stug Nordland dio i started a new build. It is a Tamiya Panzer IV which i bought from a fellow scale modeler who had started it by placing a Verlinden interior kit in the model.

After some browsing on the web i was inspired by some pics of panzers who were knocked out but not completly burned out, perfect to show the interior of my panzer!

I updated the kit with a lot of sanding, drilling, some PE, RB Model barrel and Friul tracks. The zimmerit is made of thin sheets of white Milliput. On the photos i think it looks to thick but because of the white color but were talking about 1 or 2 mm thicknes.

The hit

I still got some detailing to do and since the summer here still is cold and wet i maybe be able this one before the SMF show SMC
