Bolt Action WIP Shots
I've had these two German Desert Afrika Korps vehicles in my painting queue for quite some time, and decided to dust them off and get them painted yesterday. The open topped bus looking thing is an Sd.Kfz. 7 half-track. I've been waiting to try dust effects on a windscreen for a long time, and finally had the opportunity with this model. Unfortunately the windshield wipers on the model are so small that they would be almost useless. Despite this I gave it a shot. The recipe is simple. Mask off the area that should be clean, and just apply matte varnish to the area you want to appear dusty. Simple and fun.
The Horch anti-aircraft truck currently lacks a turret, but so far it looks like it might be the stand out model of the pair.
Neither of these models will figure in our huge Sunday game, but I am happy to add them to the DAK stable for future use.
