Thank you both for taking time to comment on this review, it is appreciated.

I particularly like the effect of the "hairspray method."


Well, the FAQ2 book has been cluttering up the bedside cupboard for a few months now, along with the 75p can of hairspray (which is of no use to me otherwise... ) so thought I'd better get around to trying it out. Seemed to work OK - plus I have my method of getting it to chip if the water doesn't work - nail varnish remover. Is there no end to the secrets that women hold?

It was also interesting to see the Tamiya Buff used again in the finishing process. This is the fourth or fifth time recently that I've read about this being used.


Yes, me too, so I thought I'd better do it as well! In fact it was just the desire to pile on the dust effect, something which I have perhaps underdone previously - and it is also in FAQ2.

I forwarded it to MK72 and they are very pleased with the result and the full build review treatment



That's nice to know, I wonder if they might like to link to the review from their site? I suppose that's allowed.

Nice review, Matthew. I forwarded it to MK72 and they are very pleased with the result and the full build review treatment. There will certainly be more from them in the future.

Cheers!

I just found this review while trying to catch up on things that I missed during some rather busy times. As with the Marder II, this offering of this company looks promising. It seems to compare favourably with recent offerings from the "Big" boy manufacturers.

The review and hints about the painting are most detailed and informative. I particularly like the effect of the "hairspray method." It was also interesting to see the Tamiya Buff used again in the finishing process. This is the fourth or fifth time recently that I've read about this being used. Very informative review!

Cheers,
Jan

Matthew Lenton builds and reviews another in MPK Modellbauís MK72 range; this time it's the Deutsches Afrika Korps version of the Sd.Kfz.10 Zugkraftwagen Demag D7.
