All parts and subassemblies are about ready for paint and now enters the critical fase; painting. This is where I tend to run aground. But first I primed them. I used both black and white in order to bet both more depth on the jeep and a slight difference in colour/shades of yellow and sand in the figures and assorted gear.
Priming also shows areas that need more attention, like gaps to fill or seams to remove, as is the case in the figures. It was at this stage that I realized I had forgotten the weaponsling on the Thompson and the stowagerack for the jerrycans.
The smaller gear was primed with a non-coloured plastic primer.
The primers I used were Citadel's Chaos black and Corax white out of a rattlecan.
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.
