Thanks Carlos, the three schemes that afv club give show that the Germans sprayed a lot of brown on them, Max had the least amount of extra added.

Started on the weathering, first a overall filter of Mig Brown. Then using model master off white I did a dot filter to create a dusty look.
Image
The right side has the dot filter, the left only the Mig filter.

The dots before being blended using a square brush moistened in clean thinner.

This is after the dots blended and a Mig Oche filter added over everything. I've fine tuned some areas after these photos but this is the basic idea of what I'm trying to do. I will let this sit for several days before adding a flat coat and then more weathering.
Thanks for looking in!

Nice! Very nicely done!
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Thank you guys! In the morning when I get home from work I will give it a coat of Mr. Super clear flat. The enamel paint needs a long time to dry before going over it. Learned that the hard way.

Wow!!! I can't get over the interior. Nice n' busy! Looking forward to more of the weathering on the outside Clint. I'm with a lot of the guys that have mentioned this in the thread about never hearing about this ride before. Interesting.

Thanks Joe she is busy on the Inside, I wish all the interior was easier to see only got three hatches and three doors to see everything.

So I got in a building whirlwind the last few days, I had enough vacation time left to take off from the 18th to the 2nd of next year. Anyway here she is with only the nameplate left to make and attach.

The camera is really making the faces look like washed out, In person I think they turned out better than any I've done so far. Also noticed I forgot the small tarp to go under the one figure on tops arm since it needs to be elevated just a bit.
Thanks for following along!
