Decals and Testors Dullcote flat finish. The brightness of the white decals was softened by adding small amounts of Tamiya's acrylic NATO Black and NATO Brown to some thinned Dullcote.

A bit shaky on the wash application...

The small weapons rattle around in the wooden cages.

Hope the multiple in-progress posts are not overkill. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.

Hi Ralph,

stop it , stop it , stop it.....no honestly, your putting us all to shame, fantastic photos and a great SBS, love what your doing with this, i especially like the wooden wurfer crates, though the camo came out great also.

Now as Lou would say, it needs a fig and a base for this beauty. Well done again and don't you dare stop with the posts, more the merrier.

kind regards
Doug

Hi Ralph!

Wonderful paint job on that nice and tricky camo pattern!

If you don´t want ot run into trouble with those always fragile width poles, you may want to give a try to turned metal ones. If I recall correctly, both Aber and RB Models have nice relacement sets.

Nice HT!

Regards!
Alvaro

PS.- Just a matter of taste, of course, but I liked much more the previous colour of the tools wooden stocks, IMHO.
