A story of painting, Airfix 1/72 (1/76) Panzer IV (by Erhan)


Hello everyone,
.
It's an unfortunate model. Like a long running therapy. It was built 8 years ago. Patiently waited for own order.This page is it's story...
.
Erhan..


I decided to complete last year..


Winter camouflage? why not .. Before I did camouflage


I applied the hair spray technique for winter camo.  Was not successful.



I used the salt technique for winter camo on Su-76 (Um Model / Su-76 link) very nice finish...




Painting again ...Should be panzer grey, the fourth coat of paint..



Finished ... Now I can sleep comfortably :)

  1. Nice to see you got it finished eventually! And very nice too. Despite it's advanced age, I thing the Airfix Pz4 still shapes up well.
