Got a start on the L/70(V) camo yesterday and thought I would try out the Disc Stencil set offered by AKI.
Laid down the tri colors first:
Before calling it a day I had to make a test run:
I hope to get the rest applied today. Cool product btw
Thanks for looking and your comments

Those front road wheels are intentional.
Models with the long barrel gun were nose heavy and waddled like a duck even going in a straight line and would rip the rubber tires right off the wheels.
They redesigned the wheel with the rubber on the inside with a steel outer shell to manage the extra weight.
They also trimmed the manlet some and moved the spare tracks to the rear to lighten up the front.
"Now you know the rest of the story" Paul Harvey said that.
Appreciate the compliment and the question John

I love any "IV" variant, especially Jagdpanzer IV and StuG IV. But painting the rubber on the roadwheels drives me crazy.
Any advice to make painting roadwheels more enjoyable if not easier?
Excellent project you have going on here.
