2. Zimmerits- with or withoutHistory:
|Close view of Zimmerit on the glacis of a Tiger II|
|Using a trowel perpendicular to the surface to gently press in the zimmerit ridges|
Here is a brief description on how I did it:
Materials: Tamiya Epoxy Putty Basic Type
zim pattern using a small pinion gear
| pinion gear zim pattern; not actual photo but similar to what I used|
1. Smear a thin layer of Tamiya grey putty on a patch of hull (turret or whatever), let it set up for a few seconds.
2. Start pressing the zim pattern small pinion gear. Start from the top and work down making a vertical column, then move to the right for the next column etc.

4. Once dry, sand the zim a bit to knock off any putty chunks and to take the edge off the ridges.
Actual work done below: Not that pretty but I had lots of fun doing it!
