The Marder 1 shown here has been painted RAL 6014 Gelboliv. The véhicule was detailed et drybrushed as usual, then partially covered avec a camouflage net made from olive green army gauze bandage soaked in PVA glue et sprinkled avec light green model railroad turf. When the net had dried completely, the bright green grass chunks were painted Field Grey (Tamiya XF-65) et washed avec black ink. After the wash had dried, the entire net was drybrushed avec various shades of green et a dusty sand colour. The effect is quite convincing, particularly if an old et dusty camouflage net is required. The ROCO Marder 1 is a great wargaming model, ready to play et detailed enough to satisfy the discerning collectioniste.
