Tools were painted with a mixture of acrylic Desert Yellow and a topcoat of Clear Orange. The rust on the muffler is a brushed application of Mig’s Track Colour pigment mixed with water.

The forward MG 42 machine gun includes a very fine ammunition belt.

Tamiya’s kit is simple, but it conveys the lines of the hard working Hanomag.

A hint of the Red Brown camouflage is retained.

Kit decals were used for the balkenkreuze and the number plates.
