Yesterday I've airbrushed Pebeo Gloss varnish on the kit:



Then, today, it was the wash phase:

First, some dots of oil paints (I've used medium green, dark brown, white, yellow and red)



Next step is the use of a paintbrush with turpentine. The paintbrush is used always in the same direction; that gives some nuances in the basic paint that reproduces effects of weather, sun, etc...

And after the flat varnish and wash over it, it will look just perfect!

The wash is made with "Wash Brown" from "Abteilung 501"; I've also glued the tracks.
