Panzer IV Ausf.D, DAK 1942

  • move
This is the old Tamiya Panzer IV Ausf.D. It was built straight out of the box. The model was weathered with chipping made from Vallejo German Grey and Saddle Brown using a sponge. Filters of Humbrol Yellow Ochre, matte Brown-Yellow and Dark Earth mixed with enamel thinner were applied. The washes are Humbrol matte Desert Yellow thinned with white spirits.

Sometimes I take the risk of test options. I applied Vallejo Natural Sienna pigments mixed with solvent Spirit and then I sealed it using the Humbrol Matt Cote. This does not remove the pigment and after drying and it is not removed, it remains without staining fingers.

More washes with Humbrol matt Brown-Yellow thinned with Spirit Solvent and pigments "ochre and Siena natural of Vallejo" sealed with Matt Cote of Humbrol.

The muffler was finished with MIG Pigment Old Rust and Light Rust with spirit solvent. The wheels were finished with dark yellow Pigments and airbrushed with a 50/50 mix of Tamiya Yellow and Flat Earth.

Rodolfo, I think your manner of weathering is incredibly good! To me it looks like a vehicle with a heavy layer of very fine dust that "runs" with the vibration of a vehicle; it reminds me of the bulldozers I used to play on as a kid.
