Tamiya Panzer II

Here is my new build the superb Tamiya Panzer II

This is a great easy to build kit. I have added some Passion models rear idlers, not really needed but I had them hanging about so used them here. The only other additions are some bolts to the front towing points, some fine chain to the rear smoke discharger and a replacement tool holder from an old Aber set.

After a coat of primer I sprayed the model with some xtracrylix panzer grey. However this looked far to dark for me so I over sprayed with some tamiya German grey with a drop of buff.

This should counter the filters and washes that will be applied later and ensure the finish is not too dark.
