So, finally on the decals. Got a used set of Echelon M3 Lee/Grant decals on eBay 1/3rd off. I decided to switch around the 6-1 15 M3 from Kursk. Also added the blue USA numbers. Still need to weather them.

Before the decals, painted the inside of the turret, even though it won't be visible with the figure in there. White sides, black bottom. As you can see, I got a little of the paint on the top of the gun. It's fixed now.

Painted the rear lights. Might need another coat.



Commander is repainted, but he still needs a little work. But not so bad from a human eye view.



V-Day is near.

Good progress! May I offer two painting suggestions? US-made tail lights had only the upper left oval lens as red. Its lower one was a black rectangle. The right tail light had two black rectangles. Also, the upper roller on the suspension was all metal-- no rubber portion. Dunno if it's something you'll want to change or not. Hope this helps.

So were the black rectangles a light? Should I do smoke over silver? or were they just black holes?

They were slits for the blackout driving system. From a far distance, you'd see a single set of 'V' lights. At a normal distance, you'd see 2 sets of Vs. If you were too close, you'd see 4 Vs.

Something's not right.



Oh, yeah, that's it. I have to cut three, maybe four, links from the tracks, then sew them back together. Bother.
