That's one of the good things about picking up discount bargains.  One can try something new, different!  Thanx for these mini mites!

got a bit heavy handed when spraying but i think it wlil all blend in when it gets an umber oil wash and then some matt varnish

the turret scurzen was a bugger to put on since it was in 5 parts, one of those jobs where you need 3 hands lol

The tri colour camo looks good Paul. What size AB needle are you using?

I think Colin means are you going to paint it? as it looks a little bare of colour.

it is painted, its just a trick of the camera flash making it look like its thin paint

i used a 0.3, i think, but i got the pressure too high, my fault entirely but i cant be bothered to redo it all

so im at that point in my shift pattern where not a lot gets done at the bench,.....when im on Late shift i just dont have the enthusiasm/energy to do any plastic bashing lol

but its worked to my advantage since on sunday i gave it an umber wash in oils and its had all week to dry off, given it a coat of matt varnish to seal and dull it all down

plan over the weekend is to get the road wheels on then the tracks.

i wasnt planning on doing any weathering but the tracks didnt go on very neatly so im going to splash some mud around to hide things

ive also lost the the commanders mg since i took this pic.....carpet monster claimed it, so ive had to 'borrow' one from an unbuilt half track kit

hope to get this finished by tomorrow to clear the decks for the next project

and finished!

really didnt want to splash mud about but the tracks looked a bit rough, so i used some Citadel ready mixed textured stuff which i find quite good to use on small stuff like this

more pics in the finished thread
