Just a few more images of the pencil trick I mentioned in my last post this time a bit better lit.
This is a "Bolt Action" 28mm German MG42 on a tripod mount. I decided to paint the tripod armour yellow since I saw a few images of the real thing painted that way. It helped add some detail to an otherwise all gunmetal weapon.
The one thing about the pencil trick to remember is that the sharper the point, the more fine detail you can highlight on the mini.
And finally here is an image of the real thing for comparison. I've seen the MG42 with both a black shoulder stock and a dark wood colored stock. I always go with a wood color for a bit of added detail.
