Here's another vehicle for my gone hot series. This is the 1/35th . Sadly, this old kit is the only early version Marder available, all the others being post 1985. The kit will be depicted rushing past the M48A2GA2 as it covers the Marder as it withdraws...

As with the , both have been sprayed with the Bundeswehr Oliv Gelb. Sadly, this only seems to be available in a pack. If Revell are going to produce specific colours, I wish they would release them individually like Humbrol did with their Authentic Colour range (boy am I showing my age now!). I think that this colour looks very close to the colour I remember from being posted to Germany and working closely with the Germans in the NSSG (Northag Signals Support Group).

Weathered alongside the M48, the sequence was just the same and again, the flash has made the look much more overdone than it really is. Next will be adding mud and Camnets, the really fun part...

    Flash is in most cases not that helpful when taking picture, I full agree.
