Maybe an Afrika Korps paint job?
Posted by snapdragonxxx on Thursday, May 9, 2019 11:32 AM

Takoms 1/35 V2, Meillerwagen and Hanomag SS100 kit is in my grubby paws and I have been looking through it. It is essentially 3 kits in 1 box and highly detailed and looks like it will be a fun build.

I was looking at the painting instructions and they are more or less the European camo jobs. The V2 colour suggestions have prototype paint jobs including a splinter pattern and black and white schemes but I think the operational ones were RAL 6003 overall.

Today some Archer Fine Transfers arrived with a sheet of DAK insignia and the thought occurred to me that a '46 DAK scheme would be different.


what do you guys out there think?
