Useful list of SdKfz designations on Wikipedia






Paints are usually Vallejo (V) or Foundry (F) with some old Citadel(C) or Coat d'Arms (CA), all on a black undercoat (Halford's matt black spray primer).  All get a "magic wash" with brown or black pigment. Magic Wash is Johnson's Klear, diluted 1:4 with water, then pigment (paint or ink) added to suit. Once the bases are finshed, all models are completed with a spray off CA matt varnish.
