Painting update 28 May

A belated publication of an update.
MG34 on tripod - now taking shape but some more painting to do with the back rests on the tripod's front rest.
German infantry - all SHQ miniatures taking shape.
AFV crew and tracks
Some part painted SDKFZ251 parts on the sprue - Tamiya Acrylic 60 Dark Yellow for Dunkelgelb. 
I think that the white enamel undercoat on the lower half makes it look better but it looks to need a second coat.
