Just completed - 1/35 Academy Tiger 1 [late version] - done in the three tone camo scheme of sPz. Abt. 505 as seen on the eastern front, July 1944.
Paints used are Vallejo 70821 (Ger. C. Beige WWII), 70826 (Ger Cam. Med. Brown), 70890 (Reflective Green), 70995 (German Grey), 70953 (Flat Yellow). Tracks done in undercoat grey, then a mix of gunmetal, flat brown and the Camo beige, finally dry brushed with rust wash and ground up pastel crayons. The beige was air brushed on the main body and road wheels. The green and brown was paint brushed on.

I cheated with the zimmerit. Got the aftermarket brass set from Eduard. Was the easiest route.
I still have the following exterior set from Eduard as I did not use any of it, but there is no Zimmerit left and unfortunately this set of 4 sheets does not have any with it: https://www.eduard.com/store/Eduard/Tig ... fda43d1855
