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 😉 – 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.
