This is my Field Kitchen on an ESCI Opel “Blitz” truck.
First I applied a pre-shade with a dark wash. Next I applied a layer of Dull Cote, and then applied the base coat of Testors RAL 7021, then another coat of Dull Cote. Some undercarriage components and the radiator were first painted all black, and then were dry-brushed with aluminum to give a dirty metal fell to them. The cargo bed was dry-brushed with RAL 8002 to give it a worn wood look. The wheels were painted black first, then rubber, and highlighted with as the rest of the vehicle. Next was another coat of the Dull Cote. Finally I highlighted areas using ‘Panzer Interior Buff’ and applied decals. Finished off with the final layer of Dull Cote.
