This model is being prepared for the same comp as Willy mentioned with his 121. So no inprogress as it is built straight from the box. I am just about to start the weathering.

It would seem that many an Australian (found on this forum) wields the airbrush like that of a Jedi Master with their lightsaber. Mic, what is the orange/red color I see in the inside lip of the driver & radio operator's hatches?

Nice job thus far Bradshaw.

I hope to see this finished with some figures so that it captures the look you're trying to get, without going silly on ground work.

Willy.

Thanks Guys,
Vadstar, the orange colour on the inside lips is Bloody red by valejo. By the time I finish with the weathering and post shading it will be an nice match for red primer. As to being a Jedi Master, I wish...

Sam the track colour is actually valejo ss camo black brown. I brushed it on as a thinned wash!! Something new I am trying out...

Willy you can be rest assured there will be no ground work to detract from the model. Hopefully I will get to build up the crewmen tonite...

Mic B

John,
The base coat is a mix of Gunze Sail and desert sand colours. The green is gunze rlm80 olive green and the brown is gunze mahogany. All the tools have been picked out with valejo colours of various types.
