The painting stage was a field of experiments for me to try some new techniques. After the base of Revell OD, I oversprayed this with an irregular pattern of lightened OD. This was followed by several oil filters and washes, gloss varnish, decals, matt varnish and a liberal amount of Mig pigments as I wanted to depict a real dusty vehicle in North Africa. As I was new to pigments, I then tried to fix them to the model with matt varnish… This left little to no pigments on the model. Luckily, I had taken some photos before, but I did not reapply the pigments at that time... Until two years later in 2010, I decided to give it another go, the result of which can be seen in the accompanying photos.
A fun project and a great learning experience!
