  1. First of all, I know these aren't aircraft and probably shouldn't technically be in this section, that said they were used on airfields to service aircraft. I've got a WIP thread of sorts here, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234947846-luftwaffe-starter-unit-and-other-airfield-equipment/ This is a resin kit by CMK of a Sd. Anh. 473 caravan which was used by the Luftwaffe for various tasks, the kit is sold as an "airfield control caravan" so fits into my theme nicely. The model was sprayed with Dunkelgelb first and then the green camouflage brushed on to represent a field applied one, the whole thing was then weathered with oils and various pigments. When I can be bothered I'll add some stuff to the roof rack as it looks a little bare and wanting. Looking at the pics it seems like I forgot to weather it as much as the rest of the van! These 2 models are both out of the same set from Verlinden and are both a mix of resin and p/e. First up is the starter unit, The Oil Cart. The hoses were made from lead wire and the oil is a mixture of AK "engine oil" W&N "raw umber" and Mig Productions "shadow brown" oils built up over a few days, in fact it took a few goes before I felt it looked half convincing, the beauty of using oils etc is that if things don't look right you can just wipe them off and start again. The chains that I used are from Hauler. Lastly for now is a compressor. This is from CMK and again resin, I added the handles for the panels and the retaining pins for the jacks from wire and again used the Hauler p/e chains. For anyone that is interested, the exhaust was first painted using a sponge with various rust colours, I used a sponge to get some texture, this then received a coat of AK "worn effects" and after the compressor had been sprayed chipped. I'm not entirely happy with the pigments on the tyres as they look far to light so may have to go over those again. Its my intention to eventually make up some sort of base to display these and others along side aircraft. I'll be adding other stuff to this thread as I finish them so if you're interested stay tuned! As usual all comments are welcome, cheers, Tim.
