A huge amount of painting the last couple of days as after almost three years we get to the base coats. Hulls and turrets, engine decks and forward access hatches, wheels and hub caps. Even Anneliese’s barrel has had pretend camouflage added so I can write the name on. I’m going for both sides for the name even though I found references for the right side only. The actual tank only has the shots from the right side so a guess on my part. Easier to remove one than to have to add one.
The camouflage on Anneliese will be very makeshift as the whitewash in the shots is very comprehensive.
Tons of cleaning up and touching up and of course the camouflage to do, but I finally feel like we’re getting somewhere
First camouflage on. This was a spray can job as I wanted a quick (possible), pre-whitewash camouflage for Anneliese, so that a hint could show through at various points. This is very shortly after the famous photos while the whitewash was new.
