Wow that's amazing - looks real. Would love to see a quad or US HT on the forum. Rare indeed!

HNY!

Thank you all for the positive input, i am pleased you like the quad so far, Here's the vehicle which it's going to be fitted too, i am tasked with weathering and adding some paint detail, i will post before and after due to the rarity of u.s. Halftrack posts on here and it is nice to see one, once in a while, regards simon.

Thanks Phil, yes it is nice to see the Halftrack, there was a beauty being built by volker pfiester on here, with some lovely work done, but just came to a Halt and never seen again, i wonder how it turned out, Here's the first of the weathering coats applied, just a bit of sponge work followed by some Matt black thinned on the hinges, seams and any dark areas, then a little flat earth colour to represent dust, light dirt in the obvious places, easy affective and very little cost. regards simon.

One more stage on the paint job, added the stencil Markings, numbers, nothing specific, and carried on with a few highlights and mud splashes, regards simon.

This is the last of the U.S. Halftrack/ quad paintwork, i placed the sdkfz 7 for some scale size and two vehicles not seen often together, The u.s. Halftrack is a great vehicle and i would like one, not to Heavy either. regards simon.
