Build Log 3 - Dragon Panzer IV Ausf G

I have no applied the winter paint scheme to my Panzer IV. I painted the model with Tamiya German Grey, then applied decals, with a coat of Future before and after. The winter paint scheme was done using the "hairspray method". I gave the model two coats of hairspray, allowing to dry for an hour. I then applied the paint, starting with a coat of a 50/50 mix of Tamiya Royal Grey and Tamiya White. The next coat was done adding more white to the mix, followed by a final coat of white, to hit the highlights. Then the scrubbing begins, using a wet stiff toothbrush and sanding stick, I removed paint till I achieved the desired effect.

Up next, picking out the detail and doing the tracks.
