I tried to make a camo but nothing satisfied me. It's hard to paint between the Thoma supports Thoma and on the back of the hull. So just a litlle udpate for today. I continued to do the details, here are the main ones that are finished. I arranged a badge DAK as you can see the glaze. I purposely left incomplete cross range. I also mount the tubes of the Feifel filters. They are made with heat shrink tubing I've painted in black.

hello, I'm back after many months!

I started my panther only now I was completely unmotivated. A few months ago, I did not pay attention and I dropped the model on the ground ... I had to start all over again as many parts (especially PE) were loosened. I took the opportunity to make new parts or replace parts that I had done before.
Now I am in the painting.
First, I did a test to rust the Friul tracks. For this, I bought the "Uschi von Rosten," it's a burning product for metals. This is the same product as blacken it. So I put some tracks in the product and I made three that are rusted and just one with the uschi. For rust, I used Vallejo and pigment. Here is the result:



Then I made a pre-shading.




Finally, I put the base layer:



And now, the camo! Step masking with silly putty and tamiya tape and result after painting:








Now, I finished with the last layer mask. Here Tamiya tape and paper tape.
Finally, I just retire all masks after spraying brown. It pleases me well for once. However, of course, a problem ... It would have been surprising if. PE parts came with the tape, you can see from the photos. Problem more annoying, the primer does not have a shield plate turret, narrow brass parts still a place on the plastic altogether. I'm really surprised. On brass, still happening, but the plastic ... Anyway, rebonding parts and repainting.

thx guys!

I used Vallejo paints, the Model Air serie and the thinner of the brand.

For base paint, I used a mix 50/50 with "sand" (71.075) and light Brown (71.027).
For the medium color, I used "light Brown" (71.027).
For the darker color, I used "camouflage light Brown" (71.035).

According the paint conversion board of Vallejo, the colors are:

-71.035 -> RAL 8025 -> 30140 Federal standart->119 humbrol -> 310 gunze -> UA125 life color

No correspondance with Tamiya

-71.075 -> RAL 1001 -> 33711 Federal standart -> 121 Humbrol -> 313 gunze -> tamiya XF59 -> no life color

-71.027 -> no RAL -> no Federal standart -> 94 humbrol -> 321 gunze -> UA097 Life color

No correspondance with Tamiya

I hope I helped you!





Otherwise, 2 pictures with tools etc... and the schurzen of the hull.

2 small photos with decals!


1 picture with a first test of chipping on schrurzen. I haven't put rust stains. I used the lighter color that I used to mix the base paint. What do you think? Not too light, not too heavy, not too large?
Another question, what should I do on the dark parts, take the same color used so far or cleared this dark brown?
I think making a not too strong wheathering which would appear a vintage painting but less fragile at the time and make a mix of materials. Eg to thin sheets (all Schurzen, rollovers, etc ...) as if it were the conventional steel. But for the case, would not it nice to pretend hull / turret were modern material, ie aluminium? It would give something pale gray without oxidation, just a color dust / rain.
The picture!
