The kit was primed using the Tamyia white primer, then a base coat of dunkelgleb was applied.
Following advice from Dave, I painted the wheels on the sprue. This was much quicker and easier than my previous attempt on the Tiger.
For the cammo scheme I decided on the three tone scheme used on later model Panthers. This had the benefit of not requiring zimmerit too.
The three tone pattern was drawn onto the body of the tank using a 2h pencil.
