Many thanks for looking in Andy and Steve,

Quick update, with the masking off done i have pushed on with some of the sub assembly builds.



The four wheel guards will be primed and base coated separately and assembled prior to weathering. There are some nice details around the rivets and checker plate steps. the etch flaps are a nice touch. I have purposely bent one of the etch number plates.






One of the rear guards mounts a gerry can. I wasn't happy with either the supplied can or the mounting of it, Hobby Boss appear to be of the impression that the Wehrmacht used magic to keep it in place[laugh] I replaced the can with one from the Tamiya can and drum accessories. I fabricated a can cradle from some scrap etch (never throw anything away[biggrin] ) and I will add a stand tap for good measure.








The Gun mount base is a nice easy build although care is needed with setting the seat.




Other separate items are the spare wheel and doors which will both be modelled open.




more soon

Jase

Some nice touches going on with this build. I like the scratch built water cradle and the Tamiya water can is a nice upgrade. Superb work and a pleasure to watch.[thumbup] [biggrin]

This is proving to be a very good value for money kit with all the detail and parts you get in the box. See you are adding to this but even oo the box it's a good one.
Happy Modelling

Thanks all for looking in.

Yes the Box kit is good. you could ad etch fasteners on the storage boxes and some of the tools etc. Also the interior mesh between the engine and cabin could be replaced to for real mesh. but a satisfying kit for the price.

The engine block and radiator were both sprayed matt black as a base. the radiator was then given some brass chipping and dry brushing. the engine block was given a wash of red brown and a dusting with brown pastel chalk. i picked out a couple of bits in different colours just for contracts and pinter all the rubber belts in dark grey, again just for contrast.



with this done the two masked off halves could be joined and then given a second prime.



While that was all drying i turned my attention to the jerry can and exhausts. I had been toying with the idea of adding a sand yellow door as if it had been replaced but there had not been time to paint it up, instead i have chosen to do the jerry can in yellow as this is quite likely to have been changed from time to time, the yellow will brake up the dark Panzer grey i think and it is also easier to weather.
With the can painted Tamiya Desert yellow. i weathered the can with a pencil, paying special attention to the areas where it would rub in its cradle.




next was the two exhausts. they were given a liberal coat of Red Brown and while still wet i sprinkled baking powder over them and allowed to dry. this gives a lumpy texture like old flaky rust. ideal for exists manifolds rusty gates etc. once dry the ehusts were dabbed with a mix of 1 part fire red, 1 part black and one part thinner using a number 5 round brush. dabbing prevents moving the backing powder about. once this was dry i used an orange red pastel chalk applied with an old stubby brush to ad some colour variation. i used black pastel chalk for the exhaust blackening.






The two headlamps have also been assembled. i wanted on of them to have suffered water ingress so after painting the inner reflector Tamiya chrome silver I dropped a drop of brick red artists ink in one of them and a light dust of orange pastel. once the lenses were on it looked ok




Finally I airbrushed the hull and my sub assembles with two coats of German grey and carefully removed all the masking. engine looks suitably weathered and I am happy to report no spray seepage into the cab [biggrin] all the nice weld seams are more prominent under paint too
