The Morser project has been delayed for quite sometime due to the unavailability of paints. I once asked a friend of mine who had build a Morser before, and he said that I will need two bottles of paint to cover the whole tank T.T
As soon as I got my hands on the paints, I started to work on this again.
The color scheme of my Morser is Gray mono-tone camouflage. In the World War II, the German had build a total of seven Morser. Six of them had a nickname. They are “Adam”, “Eva”, “Thor”, “Odin”, “Loki”, and “Ziu”. The one I am building right here is “Loki”
The first step is to apply a dark color as a base coat which could also function as pre-shades. I use Mr.Color German Gray to do this. I can’t say I’m satisfied with how it turns out because Mr Color German Gray is more like a very dark green rather than gray. You can see that the barrel in the picture above is for an example.
Since the color was far from my expectation, I have to add some more layers using Tamiya German Gray and Tamiya Dark Gray. Both colors sprayed randomly to create a highlight on the surface. The result could be seen on the front end of the tank and the wheels. I’m still gonna add a Light Gray color to highlight it even more.
For the tracks, I sprayed a Flat Black to it, then followed by Tamiya Red Brown to give a rusting effect. It is not done yet though 😀 still missing a lot of steps to bring out a nice and real rusting effect.
I found some pictures from Wikipedia,
