Default Heng Long StuG III with ambush camo pictures

So here is my HL StuG, decked out in ambush camouflage- I initially was just planning a plain dark brown over the base dunkelgelb paint, but it didn't look too good so I figured I'd add the dark green too, but still didn't look good to me, so I finally decided to add the white/gray triangle spots, and I think now it looks semi-decent. This is my first paint job in like 2 years, the last kit I painted was a Revell 1/125 scale Type VIID U-Boat, which I had a lot of fun with the zig zag camo. Anyway this is just the basic paint job, I'm still going to do some weathering and add more stuff like the fuel tanks, 75mm ammo crates, camo nets, and random things found stacked on the rear compartment of a stug. As for the paint job, I didn't want to wait 7 days to get era-specific paint so I just mixed a bunch of testors flat enamel paints until I was close enough to the colors used in the war, then sprayed dullcote all over to make sure there wasn't any gloss and it helps the decals adhere to the surface as well. The tracks, I mixed silver and rust. This whole paint job was done by hand, no airbrushing or spray paints involved. As for weathering, I'm just gonna let it naturally look weathered by constant driving, and slapping dirt on it, and for rust effects I'm going to use the same rust color but thin it and paint some where rust would gather.

Also I rushed the kill rings a little bit on the barrel, so I'm gonna revisit that when I have more free time, with some thread seal tape.

And for the side vents, I'm gonna cut out some pieces from a spare insect screen, take off the top, and replace it with the screen.

I love Stug IIIs. Now it needs some weathering to tone down the colors and add realism. You must join the NEAD RC tank club based here in NJ. I sent you a PM.

Here is my Tamlong Stug III is action in Jim K (Devildog) hands. http://www.youtube.com/user/thecomma.../0/V3Kfxw_JMvY
