The vehicles of the german Afrika Korps in the Second World War were originally painted in german grey, just like all other german vehicles in the beginning of the war (later on the regulations were different). For the service in North Africa the grey vehicles were painted in desert yellow. After a while the yellow paint began to fade and chipped off. Therefore it is very important to add a heavy chipping on a model that depicts a vehicle of the Afrika Korps. I always had big troubles with that, because my Q-tip-method is quite limited in this case. So i used a sponge, an airbrush and Humbrol Maskol to simulate heavy chipping on the model. First of all you have to paint the model in german grey, like it was the case in reality. Then you apply the Maskol with the sponge and paint the desert camo afterwards. It is quite easy to remove the Maskol again, so don´t worry about that. The video shows my first try on that technique, so there is a lot to improve in the future, but i think it is good to share my experiences with you now. I hope this short video is helpful for everybody.
