My DX-05 Afrika Korps Zundapps

Here is my first attempt on airbrushed Afrika Korps Zundapps. Applied far too much weathering on it and the results were DISASTEROUS!

Now I've purchased another DX-05 afrika Korps Zundapps and have not got the confidence to have another go on weathering my second Zundapps by airbrush.

Now I am considering buying a new proper airbrush with compressor. Noises doesn't bother me 'cos I'm profoundly Deaf by birth.

I think it looks great! It looks like a very dusty motorcycle which I'm sure they were after spending some time in a dry desert.

Why do you feel that you've overdone it?

Hi nial

I agree. It looks great! Both the bike and figures look the part.

Best regards

Sure does look like it has been out in the desert to me. I would not touch it.

Re: My DX-05 Afrika Korps Zundapps

I agree... if you look at any of the desert photos, the dust, dirt, grime all build up and then bakes in so to speak. I think that the effect looks good. I would not change it.

Re: My DX-05 Afrika Korps Zundapps

You know.. I would love to see that motorcycle and team next to those great palm trees that Hammer has in his new hobby room. That would make a killer dio.
