In the late WWII, the Germans applied a coating for preventing magnetic detonation, called Zimmeritt coating, on the tank body. This coating can be easily reproduced. The etching blade is engraved with the pitch of the coating, and if you cut the Tamiya polyester putty on the car body thinly, a sharp coated surface is completed. Coatings can be reliably made from a wide surface to a narrow surface with 4 types of blade width, producing a powerful German tank.
