Undercoated in XF-1 Flat Black, then mottled/streaked with XF-2 Flat White, XF-18 Medium Blue, XF-24 Dark Grey, and XF-80 Royal Light Grey. Some XF-52 Flat Earth down low. Not sure what colour filter(s) to try. Would prefer to keep the white near off-white or ivory, rather than changing it too much. Any thoughts/suggestions much appreciated.

Are you planning to break out some hairspray or is this the final colour pending washes?

Nice base for a winter Marder.
I think that a dark wash will look nice, to mark the lines and profile the raised elements.
Maybe some white oil paint motling somewhere to make the white paint a little more irregular in some points?
And I think that dark mud on the tracks and splashes on the wheels would look great.
You can get some nice ideas of JL Lopez´s winter Tiger some posts below.

Ralph,

That is another interesting approach following your very own painting style. You made it right for the green JS, for the green firefly, for the camouflaged Stuke-zu-fuss and now it's again working out quite well for a white wash finish.

Looking forward to seeing how it evolves.

Good work amigo.
Lu

Great work Ralph...but where do you find the time to turn out so much! I am just so jealous!

Dave: after the decals are on I'm back to my usual dilemma - where to from here? Don't quite know yet!

Hello Lu: it sort of looks like a loose Luftwaffe fighter fuselage mottle up close. Nothing at all like the beautiful box art! Yes - a great little kit. Must find the III M version! Cheers, Ralph.

Hi Rob: I'm finding these kits go together out-of-the-box far more quickly than my usual aircraft projects. So little filling, and no seam line sanding! Great for speed building. Hope you find a little more time soon. Cheers, Ralph.

Wondering whether there is any place for a selective use of hairspray technique hair to make the winter white more irregular. Suppose it depends in part on whether you're working to references.
