Hi guys, an update on this first build, finished the base coat and camo today, tried to get a few differant camo patterns in but still having a unified feel, they are all three tone except the flammepanzer, wanted that one to be little different, the Panther sticks out because I gave him a late war camo scheme, will let these dry overnight, next will be painting some details, then a filter, gloss coat, decals, oils wash, matte coat, then weathering.

Great job with the airbrush! Drooling uncontrollably right about now.

Do you have a tutorial for painting vehicles? Or a link to one by chance?

Lovely stuff. :)

Hi Mathew – there are some tutorials on my blog under the label "how to" but nothing that covers this project, basically, black Humbrol enamel undercoat, base coat is Tamiya dark yellow lightened with about 20-25% white, then cammo is Tamiya Nato brown and green, again lightened with 20-25% white, then I will given the either a redbrown or green filter made from 5% paint and 95% water, this is not a wash, it is painted in a thin coat over the whole model, it will blend the colour a bit and gives a nice subtle colour effect, then I paint all the detail, track tool, ect, then a gloss spray, add decals, do an oil wash, leave to dry for a couple of days, then a matte coat, then scratches and chipping, followed by mud and other weathering effects, pastel washes, pastel power brushed on etc.
