DAF M39
« on: February 13, 2013, 03:05:40 PM »
Another product from Retrotracks is that little Dutch M39. used by the Dutch army just before WWII; then used by the Germans during the war. After the war, there was planned to restart the production for The Netherlands and Belgium, but project aborted...

Resin is nice; material is fine... Nothing special to say.

The most difficult thing was to remove the resin carrot under the chassis... The vehicle is just ready for painting!

Yesterday at night I airbrushed the camo of that little DAF. As it is a "what-if", I've decided to represent it with the Belgian khaki "mosterd" from 1940... I like it!

Belgian khaki 1940 =
40% Tamiya XF-49 kaki
40% Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow
10% XF-52 Flat Earth
10% orange yellow

Then today I've painted the tyres with "Dark Rubber" from Panzer Aces

Then, weathering with Model Master Rust with some drops of MM Gun Metal

... And I've assembled the parts.

Next step: airbrushing gloss varnish
