I'm thinking you'd usually use Vallejo Model Air Ian? Iraqi Sand 819 is a good colour for Dunkelgelb (RAL 7028). 


Alternatively Tamiya XF 60 dark yellow, cut with XF 78wooden deck tan in a 50:50 mix works well too. The dark yellow on its own is a bit too dark IMHO.

Coming along nicely Ian. At least there's not too many wheels on a Hetzer!

Well I've got most of this put together now and painted. I've also done the Mammoth decaling for this build.


So now it's time for the colour modulation and weathering.

Well I've slowly been plodding along with this one, I've got most of the things on the upper hull. I've knocked the telescopes off though I will put them back on when I've finished it. I've also weathered the underside and put the wheels on and started the tracks. Still plenty to do.
