When I first found out about the use of red primer as interiour coler I was actually quite disapointed. Here you have a real open topped vehicle with a lot of detailing potential - and then you have to paint it this boring red (and quite dark) color.
I have one of my own on the workbench, but I have given myself the extra challenge of building an engine for it. Long time ago I actually started a blog about this build, but too litle time for modelling left it all running into the sand. However, the beast is still in on the desk and every once in awhile I do a little work on it.
As for the camo there is one important thing you should notice. There is only one correct paint scheme for this vehicle. All these late war 234s where factory painted in excatly the same scheme (with a slight variation around the 20 mm gun turret/75 mm main gun) if you compare side views of late war 234s you will know what I am talking about ) and the camo was hard-edged too.
By the way, the rust on you gun mount look excatly like the 234/4 at the Patton is looking today )

Thank you, Torben, and friends.

I repainted interior hull red. Maybe add some dust later.

Any comment are welcome.

Good job you did there.
I take it the interior was red but I suggest you stay away from it for the camo. There is a couple of pics in Panzertracts #13 page 47. The caption says "camuflage paint only partially covering the base coat of red primer" this has been translated as "red primer IS the camo" when it means " paint sparingly applied over red " and when looking at this pic one can see the red primer right underneath the yellow and dark coat, just as if (why "if" ?) the yellow coat is so thin that the red primer can be seen underneath at places.

See here :



The other indication that the dark patches are not red primer is that the gun barrel is also camo'ed when we know these barels were never painted using red primer but using a yellow (sometimes grey) heat resistant laquer so when a barrel is camo'ed then it can't be primer. Of course it's up to you to make up your mind and decide to go "fashion" (e.g. red primer used as camo) or not.

Very nice work! Did you make the muzzle brake cover yourself, or is it being sold somewhere?
