Hi Marcello,

Sorry I have just caught up to your build, and will be watching your paint technique with interest. Again the Mr S 1000 sounds interesting, I have just picked up a Badger 250 basic airbrush just for priming and I think I can be tempted to give this a go. Looking forward to more.

And yes, my bench is the same, new bench etc and new promise to keep my work area tidy, promise broken on first group build, so you and John are not alone.

Cheers, Mike.

Steve, that's very generous of you, thank you very much appreciated. I hope all the preliminary effort will not disappear with the camo to follow
Mike, no worries, I am always very late in any of the threads considering the amount of excellent work going on simultaneously wink

John, thanks for the appreciation smiley
Greg, the green is diluted quite a lot (eye ball not precise measure here). I have used Tamiya olive drab diluted with lacquer thinner. All the paint is airbrushed (very low pressure)

good morning,
Scottie - thank you, nothing compared to yours yes
Si - thank you, very much appreciated. the preparation is quite time consuming but there is a feel of satisfaction in the end. Almost a shame that need to be covered with a base colourfrown

some more progress in the early mornings. I think I can consider the camo paint complete
Now I need to finish the wheels, tracks, barrels and a few more details before progressing the next steps.
I will keep this one clean enough with minimal weathering, some dust and minimal dirt. But maybe when it will be time for it, I change my mind...dont know
That's it for now up to the next update
