Wacht am Rhein operation is closing in, time to get more APC for the troops.

This is the second Sdkfz 251 getting a proper paint scheme and weathering.

After the primer coat, I used Tamiya XF-60 Dark Yellow and XF-2 White (mix ratio between 50/50 and 25/75) for the base, XF-64 Red Brown, XF-9 Hull Red, XF-10 Flat Brown and some White for the Brown colour. XF-65 Field Grey, XF-67 NATO Green and some White too for the Green.

The weathering is made with enamels: White, Brun Amber, Sienna, Ocher and Buff.

I still have to add the mud on the wheels and tracks as well as working on the interior.

Hi Herman,

I used handkerchief or soft paper can do the job too and electric welding tin for the bars. The half rings are not sufficient, you need to make a "U" bar too.

Thank you Nigel,

I also add a small patch on it ( bullets or even a rat can damage the canvas) but it isn't very clearly on the picture, but here is another one:
