"To achieve a similar finish to this Bedford OYD Cut Down model, I started with a clean base coat, selecting colours that resonated with the historical use of the vehicle in desert operations, such as sandy beige and muted yellows for the body, complemented by darker tones for the tyres and undercarriage to represent wear from rough terrain. I dry brushed the edges and surfaces for highlights, and added subtle washes to recesses to bring out the details and create depth. Weathering with a mix of thin brown paints and pigments, I simulated dust and wear particularly prevalent in desert warfare. The cabin interior received a careful application of olive drab, while the windows were carefully painted with a light blue tint to simulate glass.” - Stuart
