Took me about 18 months to complete as we moved house half way through the build.

Pretty much out of teh box build aside from turned brass muzzles and additional cooling hoses for the Maxim MGs...

Thanks guys.

Paul - For the base sand colour I used Hobby Color H318 Radome darkened down with Taimya XF57 Buff and XF59 Desert Yellow. The green is Hobby Color H405 Olive Green with the brown being Hobby Color H47 Red Brown.

There is a full blog here if you are interested in the build - plasticarmour.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php

Very well done! Looks great...

Specifically about "Schnuck" there were a lot of controversy about color scheme. A lot of references have the meaning "Schnuck" were always grey, but a original pic of "Schnuck" shows a camouflage scheme. But I would say (looking on this pic) that all upside must be grey...

Nicely built and I especially like the paint/weathering. Meng has really done WWI modelers a real service with this kit. It's a real beauty.

Given that you built her all "buttoned up", did you bother with the interior at all?

Thanks Paul. Yes, I did most of the interior as part of the blog I made (see above link) but didn't paint it.
