Here we go with the update. She's now had more weathering added using AK Interactive NATO weathering set. I might add some more weathering, it's fine balance! She's still gloss to aid the decals settling down. I found the decals responded well to Microscale setter and softner. I still have to add some light mud and dust to the wheel and underside areas. Then I'll be applying a flat varnish to combine the areas, before adding camouflage nets and personal kit and pioneer tools to the rear access door

  1. Very realistic looking "mud tires"...I like it.

  2. Looking great!

  3. The NATO paint scheme really makes this model stand out. Great job.

  4. Many thanks chaps! For those who want to know, I used Humbrol dust wash over the tire and when dry, I dry brushed Tamiya Nato Black over the whole of it. Repeat x another 7 !
