Non of the items here are posted with any form of political meaning, content or similar. Everything is displayed with an emphasis on historical correctness, unless stated otherwise. Swastikas and SS-runes are a part of military history, as are David's stars, rising suns, stars & stripes, hamer & scyths etc. If you have a problem with that, please feel free to leave! Political correctness does not live here and I will not be held accountable for hurting any overly sensitive souls that can not handle history.
If you are interested in building scalemodels, study actual military history and the like however, you're most welcome to stay, browse, read and/or comment.

The contents of this blog are mine; the models I built, the ideas I used etc. If you want to use these, I'd appreciate it if you asked permission first and use the contents as they are intended; the making and depicting of scalemodels.
The reference pictures I use were dug up on the internet and I use and share them only as such; a reference. Whenever possible I will state the source, but unfortunately I have no idea where I found many of them anymore. The vast majority of the military images have been "living" on my harddrive for years.

Special Air Service Jeep - Tamiya 1/35 part 5

Yes, part 5 allready and the stage of completion is drawing ever nearer.
All parts are in place, painted and received their first washes and drybrush.
I used to use Mig-washes, but find that they are quite heavy, so switched to Citadel washes and these are much more delicate, easier to distribute AND correct.

As for the drybrushes, these were first done with Vallejo "natural steel" for the worn off areas, followed by another Citadel newcomer the drybrush paint "Eldar flesh". This paint really is thick, almost paste-like and very easy to use with good results.
I also like their brushes. Good quality and each with their special purpose; base, layer, shade and dry which correspond with the paintsystems used by Games Workshop. What I don't like about these systems is that you end up with a myraid of different colours, hues and painttypes. However the quality of these is outstanding and I just wish they'd go into military colours. They'd obliterate the competition!

All being said and done; everything's painted in a variety of sandy, earth- and greentones, which, together with the washes and drybrushes, makes for an interesting display without resulting in an off-look with clashing tones.
The last stages, as far as the Jeep goes, will be the touching up of the dashboard and blending everything more together by a coat of dust and dirt.
