Pz. IV in soviet use

Hi guys
Today I would like to start a new thread with my new project, a Russian captured Pz IV E. The basiic model comes from the DML Vorpanzer kit but I'm building a standard Ausf E. Frankly speaking I don't know if there were any soviet Ausf Es but I wanted to paint something different so a green panzer it will be. The build is a rather OOtB one, the only aftermarket parts are tool holders from Lion Roar, turned aerial from RB model, a scratchbuild damaged muffler made of aluminium sheet. I'm going to sculpt the crew as well. The fenders were treated with a sharp blade to give them a damaged look.

The model:





The first stage was to cover it all with a layer of flat black primer (I use a acrycli car primer, very effective and relatively cheap):



Next I applied a cote of tamiya flat green thinned with gunze's leveling thinner:



After doing all this I started the modulation using flat green and yellow green:



The details were painted with Vallejo paints:



And the turret ready for further work:



I painted the inner sides of the hatches with tamiya's light gray (these weren't probably repainted by the Russians and moreover this is a good color addition to the model):



I worked also on the tracks and sprockets, idlers:



The wheels were airbrushed with flat green, as well as the tracks with Panzer Aces Tracks Primer, the tracks around the sprockets and idlers were painted using a brush. The details were finished with Vallejo paints.

That's it for today.
Thanks for looking.

Radek

Hi Aleksandr

I know about captured Ausf Ds, Ausf F1s and Ausf F2/G Maybe there were some of the E type too. Anyways here is a update, with the hull being finished and clear gloss applied:

Wow, these are pretty harsh contrasts! I'm really looking forward to the next updates, how you handle them. But I guess you'll be doing fine, I know your other models

Hello
Johannes, the oils will nicely smooth the contrasts, trust me I think I start with them this evening.
Petarted thanks, I have several pics of captured Ausf Fs found on the web, here they are (for discussion):




These are still in german colours but this one below, along with a Pz III J is in green (at least the text says so ):
