Rubicon SdKfz250/1 – Project DAK

Rubicon 250/1 …..

Just a quick look at the 1/56th Rubicon SdKfz250/1. I was in too much of a rush to get sprue pics but in summary it’s a pretty nice bit of kit. Very accurate overall in shape and with optional parts to build a 253 version. So I whipped on the base paint and though I’d try to get the look of the “hairspray” chipping technique that the big boys get to use i.e. those with airbrushes šŸ˜‰ – but using my old faithful brushes.

Base paint was Humbrol Enamel Grey 27 for this as I figured laying down acrylics over enamel might allow me to rub off and distress the top coat a bit. Top was just some Vallejo desert colour, not sure which I just grabbed it for the experiment. Making it look worn turned out to be fairly quick and easy and I think it’s turned out pretty good so far. Bear in mind this is just the base paint, with a few more layers, touch ups, detailing and then usual washes/shading/dusting I think this should end up looking pretty ok.

    • Their later kits (like this one) are very good and it appears they’re redoing the older and simplified ones which shows they’re listening and want to improve. Much better than battling with resin ….. šŸ™‚
