So as today I had a day off I was able to spend a little time on the 251. First thing I did was to replace the super thick outa scale grab handle on the front plate with some thin copper wire.




before gluing the plate in place I installed the vision port glass holders. The instructions would have one glue the parts A6 and A7 in upside down.






here I have glued the fenders in place.


here the side storage boxes were added, as well as the exhaust muffler.
You may want to add this before gluing the fenders in place.


now the Jerry cans

Next the out of scale thickness on the front tow hook parts was reduced by sanding them thinner. The one on the right is thinned. (The location marks on the front lower hull will be removed prior to gluing to the hull)


here is the dash board/steering wheel area. The part B28 is illustrated backwards on the instructions.




here the controls are in place. The width indicator poles have been cut off at the base. The pole part will be replaced with some thin wire as the kits parts are comically too thick in girth.


the top plate installed and the joint filled with some putty that is sanded back

so I started painting this now that most of the parts are together. I will be keeping them in subasseblies as is my prefered way of painting a model. I like to get in all the nooks and crannies and have acces for detail painting/aging etc.
First the flat black followed by the Xtracolor grey.




next the dirt colour was sprayed in the wheel wells, wheels, track and some on the inside of the hull where people would walk.

So now I have given the painted body a coat of Future and have applied the decals. I really don't care for the way the licence plate numbers need to be individually applied to the licence plate. Too much room to goof the results. Fortunately I did okay although the Helm and Tactical Marking should be higher up from the licence plate. I plan on making this a pretty dirty little guy so that error will not be too noticeable. I would like to add some kind of spare track or wheel to the front plate but there isn't anything extra in the kit for that- I need to maybe buy another kit or figure something out...






next I added some mud...




this was given a coating with pigment powders mixed with Tamiya thinner.


somewhat dry. I've glued the wheels all in place and added the tracks. These fit okay lenth wise but I did have a little trouble with the glue melting the plastic a little more than I would have liked. I don't like this part of 1/72 scale kits. I wish there was single link tracks like for the larger 1/35th scale brother.
