Getting nearer to Christmas. This is the last formal meeting of the year with just the social meeting on 23rd to come.
First off, John Ovenden brought along a really nice Trumpeter SdKfz 7. I chose it as the featured model as he explained clearly how he moderated the finish and weathered it.
I initially painted the model in panzer grey which I felt left it rather bland,
so I coated it in XF2 Tamiya matt white to give a winter camouflage effect.
Then, to wear down the effect over time, I used Decalfix as the distressing agent which works very quickly and effectively on un-glossed varnished paint. After which I coated it in sepia ink diluted with water.
Hope thats ok for you mate".
