PaintingBecause the model is such an early war model I mixed together a lighter shade of OD paint for the main base coat. For the model’s markings I went with the yellow stripe and stars. The war department serial numbers were painted in light blue, which were found on US vehicles of this time period. Like my other 1/6th builds all of the markings are painted on via homemade disposable stencils. To bring out the detail in the rivets, the model was shaded with a darker shade of OD. After the model was painted and weathered I added the last of the finishing details, these would include the kit supplied workable ABS tracks, wooden handled crew tools, clear plastic head light lenses and aluminum fuel caps. Finer details were also painted these would include the red painted zerk fittings, fire extinguisher handles, tail lights, and amber ceramic insulator on the MP37 aerial base.
