Trumpeter E-50 with Heimdall turret

I’ve started painting the E-50 after giving it a coat of primer;

 The base coat is a mix of Tamiya olive green, cockpit green, yellow and white but please don’t ask what the ratios were as it was just all mixed in until I achieved the shade of green I wanted. The darker green was actually hand painted using Vallejo olive green as I could’nt face masking off the splinter camouflage, plus I used this method before on my M728 CEV and it worked out OK (for once);

I did’nt paint the darker green on the uppersurfaces (just because so there) and I’m toying with the idea of adding a sandy colour in places to add some light to a dark scheme but we’ll see.
Light green was actually used as a basecoat on some late-war panzers and I wanted to carry this over to my paper panzer with the outline broken up by a splinter camouflage scheme. The MG mount on the rear deck will be painted in another colour yet to be decided as though it was taken from another vehicle.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
