So, this was a quick paint job by my standards, considering I painted the base coat this time last week, but it's certainly one I'm proud of. I feel like the weakest aspect of the weathering are the wheels, however the paint did not want to stick to them, making me loathe to try too much.

Great! I love this little vehicle. You can see the genes that spawn the likes of the Hanomag, and the light armoured cars and indeed heavy armoured cars in this.

 

I don't know why you had trouble with getting the paint to 'stick' to the 'wheels'. Do you mean the tyres? Are they rubber tyres or plastic?

Rubber tires! I learned from my mistakes and thoroughly washed the tires on my latest model (link below), and have been careful not to handle them too much, and I've had no real issues. I heard that PVA glue on the rubber tire can help paint stick.

Rubber tires!

I'll spell it tyres cos I'm English :D

I don't know if it's any help at all but in Tiking's last diorama he had to deal with rubber tyres and he sprayed them with matt varnish first. I have to say the effect of 'old rubber' he got was very realistic.

:worry: I, uhh, thought I'd spelt it wrong- funny how Americanisms seep into our lexis, isn't it?

A strange and interesting vehicle, I love the tone of the gray panzer, something blue, that fits very well with the weathering dust.

:goodjob:, cheers mate :yes:

I have a book that I purchased some years back and it has a few photos of this machine and I must say you make it look like it's just jumped off the pages well done 🤓🖒
