This isn't a bad kit at all. The only minor trouble spots were the Bustle rack and the Smoke Dischargers, which are too thick and lacking fine details, respectively.

I just left the Smoke Dischargers as is, but I made a tarp made of Miliput to cover the Bustle.

Camo is NATO Black, Green, and Brown with German Camo Dark Green below the fenders.

Currently I have it waiting for an overall wash before the details get painted in before final weathering.

I built it straight out of the box as a decompression build. I'm missing the water cans from the side of the turret, but I have only misplaced them. When I find them I'll add them.

Thanks for taking a peek, gentlemen!

Very nice !!! Love the camo. Hope you will find the missing water cans. Can't wait to see the weathering process. Will be very instructive for me. Thank you for sharing these pictures.

Thank you gentlemen. Honestly I haven't been putting a lot of effort into this one. I just mess with it when I need to fiddle with some armor.

Progress has been at snails pace and will likely continue this way for a time. So many real world distractions lol.

Again, thank you! :D

AK Interactive enamel Black sludge wash brought out some details and leveled the NATO brown down a lot.

I cleaned that up and matte coated it. That evened out the overall tone, but now it looks too dark. Further dusting with some Tamiya powders should take that darkness down a notch.

No details have been filled in yet and I haven't finished the wheels either. That's the next step I suppose.

I'm thinking I'm going to respray these colors before I get too much more along with it. I know I can do better and I really feel like I should.

I resprayed using slightly darker colors and less feathering on the pattern. I'm much happier with the way it turned out this time.

I added the searchlight cable and started detail painting. Headlights and tail lights painted in.

That's all for now.

I got into a good push with this one today and I'm really close to finishing it. I snagged some fuel cans from the Academy accessories set and one of them is Isreali, but l like the contrast it brings.

I resprayed the road wheels and found that a Voyager Models wheel mask was a perfect fit.

Not much more blocking to do and I'll be able to do some light weathering to bring up the realism a bit.

One of the rubber band tracks started breaking so I pulled out a set of AFV Club T142 Indy links.

They're a perfect fit, so Revel did a dang nice job with this kits measurements.

Sure it could use some better and finer details, but there is plenty of AM bits and bobs to dress the kit up. This kit almost rivals Tamiya for parts fit.

I've been finishing up the detail painting and I'm thinking I'm about done. I'm sure, as always, I'll find a few things I missed.

Good morning, Ted, and thank you.

It helps that it's a good kit right out of the box and I'm glad I changed the colors to what they are now. Online references show them being brighter and closer to the NATO colors, but these look better to the naked eye. These pictures show up darker because of this new phone I have.
