Perry Miniatures Kubelwagen

As part of the Africa Korp unit, I bought a Perry Miniatures Kubelwagen.

The model is one large resin casting (complete with all four wheels and the spare) plus white metal castings for the two man crew, steering wheel and folded down canopy.

The model is notably smaller than the Warlord Games one (bottom).
I put a rolled up tarpaulin in front of the windscreen and added some green stuff to the canopy.

I undercoated it with Citadel Chaos Black spray, followed up with Citadel Zandri Dust. The tyres were painted with Vallejo Black Grey. The spade blade is Vallejo Black, the handle Citadel Mournfang Brown.

 The body was washed with Citadel Agrax Earthshade, the tyres with Citadel Nuln Oil. I missed one of the wheel hubs.
 Decals are from the Rubicon SDKFZ 250/253 kit.
The canopy and the tarpaulin were painted with Humbrol 237.
