this was new tool back in 1969, not sure when this boxing is from, early 80s i think

instructions show all over green but i might go for the green/black camo

put a bit too much mud wash on then had hell of a job trying to get it off again!

this was one i never did way back when as a kid so was great to do it now, and i always like braille scale armour anyway
