After some research and Dunkelgelb will be the paint colour.
I may try some pre-shading to accentuate the crevices.

So while things dry I am making a start on the Takom 1:35 Meillerwagen, this was for the transportation and erection of the V2 onto the launch table. It could also acts as a service gantry for fuelling the rocket with Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)

Hi Zak,
You have really got into this one, haven't you?
Really like your tenacity to dig deep into the build subject.
Respect!
Cheers,
Bigkev

A bit of weathering and the number plates applied to the Hanomag.

I bet after the weekend (Telford) you are a little bit weathered too!

Nice, and if ALL THOSE KITS YOU BOUGHT at Telford come together this will be a fantastically detailed project.
Ooops!
Cheers,
Bigkev

Back to the Vidalwagen and scratch building.
I bought some wheels in Telford, scratch built the springs and tow bar and here it is.
I did learn that Takom will be releasing a kit of the Vidalwagen later this month - typical -  as usual.
I could say a lot of rude things but I would only be moderated I suppose.

The Crane is just about finished, some weathering and a bit of highlighting here and there.

Hi Zak,
A nice bit of colour to the project..................
Are those the replacement wheels from Telford or it that for another part of the project?

The replacement wheels are the ones on the Vidalwagen.

In need of a few figures, I am adopting the backwards approach as a trial.
Figures were undercoated in black and then I will apply lots of dry brushed coats getting successively lighter.
The jury is still out.
Here we have a couple of coats so far.
The other ohotos show the base for the diorama, models posed for effect.
I do intend to build another Hanomag but in grey.
Notice the difference in the two pictures - different lighting conditions.

I can't afford 50p or a shilling.

More dry brushing on the figures.
