1⁄35IDF Doher SPH
The base kit is the AFV Club M109A2 with the Legend conversion in resin and etch. The conversion is extremely detailed and up to the usual high standard for Legend. Combined the kits give a good, accurate interpretation of IDFís Doher self propelled howitzer. The figure is from the Meng IDF crew set.
The kit is primed using automotive primer, in the UK I use one from Halfords. I know there is much debate over the correct colour for sand grey. I prefer to use Lifecolor Israeli grey. Once filters are done with various oil paints it tones the color completely down. I then did a final wash with burnt umber, and finished the model off with Mig pigments to give it an overall Ďdustyí look.
