Hi there

Another one down, nice quick Tamiya 1:35 build, still allowing you to build in a day. The only draw back is the hull is open above the tracks and the one piece tracks need to be glued down.

The Vehicle was painted in Olive Drab Humberol enamel and then left to dry for 48 hours, I then airbrushed Tamiya Flat White in a mottled coat and directly afterwards sprayed a little Windowlene (ammonia based window cleaner) over the surface and rinsed off under the tap. I also used a small coarse brush dipped in the same product to create some worn areas.

Once the water had dried, I applied a few diluted coats of black and burnt umber oil paints in the recess areas. I then used a sponge and thin plastic sprue to create scratches, followed by some thin rust and dirt streaks on key areas

Thanks for looking
Mike
