Airbrushing Session

Today the weather was perfect, the kids were taking a midway snooze so I got to enjoy a much needed airbrushing session! The Schwimmwagen in Tamiya Dark Yellow is sure looking nice.

Airbrush Prep Work

I have decided to change the main color from Tamiya German Grey XF-63 to Tamiya Dark Yellow XF-60 since I already have a Tamiya 1/35 German 6x4 Truck Krupp Protze in German Grey in my scale model collection. In general I prefer German Grey but I want to diversify the colors used in my collection and the Dark Yellow fits the bill nicely. Tonight I prepared everything that will be airbrushed as soon as I get a chance.

Tamya 1/35 scale WWII German Schwimmwagen

Today I took out an old kit from my stash, a Tamiya 1/35 scale WWII German Schwimmwagen Type 166. Purchased sometime between 2000-2002, I had started the kit by spraying the it with white primer then airbrushing it German grey. I was starting my first job after studying and time was lacking. Scale modelling was put aside for a few years while focusing on getting started in life... I've decided that now is a good time to get back to this kit...

Below I've attached several parts to the upper hull of the vehicle.
