I wasnt planning on doing a blog for this one but what the heck.
So I was looking at this kit on my shelf the past few days and after looking in the box and seeing that its pretty much a Tamiya style build (good detail, easy construction) I started it. It took a good 6-7 hours to build but if you put on a good podcast it passes quick.
So I built it OOB with only some added antislip.
(Sorry for the bad pic I took it in a rush not knowing if I wanted to do a thread on it or not)
Then I sprayed it with a custom mix of NATO green. Im very happy with how the color modulation looks.
Then today I sprayed the highlights with a even brighter green. (The modulation seems gone but its still there) It looks super bright in the pics but a wash and filter will deal with this.
I also airbrushed the tracks carefully with Vallejo dark rust and hand painted the rubber on the road wheels and tracks. (The modulation looks gone but its still there)
Next is masking off and spraying the black splinter camo on the gun barrel
