Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf F Trop Academy 1/35

Post by Milan Mynar » 31 Dec 2021 15:37

The model was recently released by the South Korean company Academy in 1/35 scale. In the box we find a total of five sand-colored frames. There are cleanly made parts of the kit. Frame A contains the upper part of the body and other details. Frame B,  parts of he undr hull and other details. Frame C, they are two, contains chassis and track parts. The tacks are plastic from longer sections and individual links. Frame D contains parts of the turret  and a lot of details. We also have a sheet of photo etched parts and a sheet of quality decals. The instructions are clear and understandable. Contains color schemes for several German and one captured  American vehicle . Overall, the model looks nice and promises a comfortable building.

Well Milan, your progress so far surpasses my own.

Don't know why I did not see this before, or with the Panzer III kit, but if you look at that painting and decal placement color drawing, the paint job seems to be very close to the Vallejo color Khaki. The color of paint used by the Afrika Korps has always been an interesting subject to me. No two seem to be alike, and of course in real life none were, or if they were ever the match probably lasted half a day in that sun.

I may experiment with that Khaki color on the II, and see how it turns out.

I started painting. First spray paint with Panzer Dunkelgrau from Hataka. Then spray painted with Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yello, which I wiped with a coarse brush soaked in warm water.

I added the last details, overspray  the model with dust pigments to slightly dampen the color contrast. And I declare the model complete. The construction of the model was without problems. I believe that the Academy will use the potential hidden in the kit and surprise us with another version.
