Don't worry Ron. I've already figured that one out lol. Do you know what finish the tanks were done in? Matt or satin?

Sorry Allyne, I'm not sure what they would be 'Factory Fresh', but I always paint mine in a matt finish mainly because I usually muck my tank models up, so they would end up dull anyway!

I suppose once painted a coat of matt varnish would be acceptable. The Vallejo matt varnish I use has a very slight sheen to it when dry.

I'm sure you will get the definitive answer here abouts pretty darn quick!

Ok i've painted the interior with a home made ivory colour made from white, brown and yellow. Think i've over done it with the brown but there again the colour would get dirty when beinig used in the field (litterally).

So here's a pic of the interior minus the sight and periscopes.

Cheers John. I'm enjoying puting this kit together. Nearly time for painting and weathering. Big learning curve for that one lol.

Cheers Ron. Will have a look what humbrol paints i have
Allyne, Humbrol Matt 67 is what I use. There again, I guess any Dk. grey would do, seeing as how it might be getting the mud treatment...wink, wink!

Cheers

Ok another question for you armour guys. On the side of the jagdpanther there is a box and a fire extinguisher. What colour would these items be? Some have painted wood effect and others have painted cammo for the box. The extinguisher has either been red, yellow or dark grey

Allyne, the box is in fact a solid wooden block used with the jack, so I would go with wood effect.

Not sure of the fire extinguisher colour, some pictures on Google Images show it just Dk yellow, others show it just passed over when spraying the cammo.

I don't know enough about the niceties of tank painting, but I'm sure someone on here will enlighten us both soon!
