Well I think I'll put a fork in this one and call it done. I do still need to to glue the tank down and make a name plate. Thanks for looking and all comments welcome.

This looks great James, the streaking is very good and I like the effect where some of the rubber 'zimmerit' has come off

James, you did a good job on this special vehicle with some nice effect. Also, I want to know what is the base colour for the tankers uniform ?

Thanks for the comments guys.
It's not a stock color. I re-mix a lot of my colors. I believe the base color I started with was Model Masters Acrylic US Army/Marines Gulf Armor with just a bit of white and maybe a touch of yellow to lighten it but not dull it out.

Especially on the finer details ! Just add a dark colour to the turret mortar hole exit, that's all.
