|The stretcher is covered with surgical tape to give it a canvas |
texture. The blanket over the stretcher is cotton fabric, dyed
with thinned green paint. Added details in the rear include
(fabric) blankets, gas can, sleeping roll and a tool box.
Road dust was applied by 'scrubbing' on light gray pastel
chalk dust. The flaking rust on the muffler is multiple layers of
orange & brown chalk dust powder, sealed with a coat of
Tamiya 'clear' paint.
|- The tank was airbrushed in olive drab overall, |
then weathered with a combination of dry-brushing
and chalk powder to create the appearance of road
dust and wear on the hull.
- Note the drilled out muzzle on the hull's .30cal MG.
- The road-pads on the kit's rubber tracks were
painted flat black before the tracks were weathered
to match the vehicle.
