Videotutorial – Modulation in a bitonal camo. SdKfz. 251

Hi everybody! Yesterday I painted a SdKfz. 251 for my Bolt Action army. So I decided to record the process of painting the green color using the modulation style.

This model is a gift from my friend and companion here at ModelBrush, Rubén (HeresyBrush). Thanks mate!!

Now some explanation of the process, with pics:

For the Dunkel base color I used Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow with a little bit of Tamiya XF-78 Wooden Deck Tan:

    Great looking Hanomag! Who is the manufactor of this SD.KFZ? And what color do you used for the green?

      Hi Ingo and thanks for your comment!
      The SdKfz. is from Die Waffenkammer, a SdKfz.251/1D 1:56 scale.

      The green used is Tamiya’s XF-26 Deep Green. I simply mixed it with white, as seen in the video. It produces a highly unreal tone, but it gets really better with the weathering on.
