Easy Eight Paint

After an almost all day session spraying the Sherman is now in it's nice new coat of paint. I used Gunze H52 olive drab No1 with a good slug of Tamiya XF4 yellow green as a base colour. This was then thinned and more XF4 was added gradually to add some highlights. Finally a drop of white was added and this was sprayed selectively over the model to add yet more highlights.

The wheels got a coat of Tamiya XF85 rubber black then using the quickwheel mask which was supplied in this particular boxing the centres of the wheels were sprayed with the olive drab. It's the first time I've used these particular masks and it worked extremely well being quick and simple to use.
