1/72 – Trumpeter – 07205 – SD Kfz 184 Ferdinand (“Reconnaissance” vignette)

For a long time I wanted to make vignette with a simple plot. Finally, it is true.
About the story of vignette: “before the next attack, the officer explains mission to the crew of spg.”
Ferdinand from Trumpeter. Very high quality model, though rather old.

Going without difficulty. Camouflage took normal for these machines “green grid”.
Machine going without historical reference. This decided not to paint camouflage upper surfaces. I made a gun barrel gray for more contrast.
Color sequence:
1) Dark yellow base.
2) Clarification of the basic yellow.

(MODULATION)
3)first highlights. 60% of the German yellow + 40% white.
4)second  highlights . 20% German 80% yellow + white.
5) Color selection of small details with previous color (with a brush).
6) Fading using oil paints.
7) Painted green camouflage.
8) Two-colored chips. (First white-yellow, then dark brown)
9) Yellow-green filter.
10) Dark brown wash.
11) Dirt and rain streakings.
12) Dirt and Dust using pigments.

These all stages of painting can be seen on the photo.
Figures from ORION.
Good quality castings but very poor quality material. This is my first experience in painting figures, so I learned a lot of methods and techniques focused on the “glazing”. Used for painting art-acrylic.
Stand is made by using plastic flower pot stand. Texture of land  made ​​with plaster.
