Although the wood panels were most likely painted over in dark gray, I decided to have the wood tones.  It was more challenging, however, the end result is much more appealing.

The wheels are painted with a mix of brown metal (tamiya), red brown (tamiya), Rustal, water and tamiya acrylic thinner.

There's still quite a bit of work left:

  • Dry brush highlights
  • Decals
  • Mute overspray
  • Wheathering spray of off white and near black
  • Dust/grime layer
  • Paint peals (not looking forward to that)
  • Various other touch ups
  • Oh, and the gun crew and possible diorama
