I know this tank was not featured in the North African TOW. However the visual theme for my Germans will be DAK. The Deutschland Afrika Korps lead by Rommel himself. While I love the armor from Warlord Games I am not too thrilled with their infantry models. When the Perry Twins started to release their DAK range I knew it was a match made in heaven for me!
This tank has been somewhat of a soap opera for me. I have stripped the paint from it 3 times now. Having problems with colors or paint texture. I usually dilute my acrylics with regular old rubbing alcohol. But the paint kept coming out "stringy". Prior to trying to mix my own color. I tried the AK Interactive DAK Airbrush Paints. I found these to be extremely translucent and I was not happy with the extremely bright sand color. I do have the filters and washed to bring that back down but I wanted to get this guy done quickly.
So here is where it sits after a painting session tonight. I still have all of the wheels and tracks to paint and a few other details. Then on to the weathering and pigments!
