I started to paint the details today. The running gear has been painted according to my reference pictures (at least I tried :lol: )
The few decals are applied. Unfortunately most of them are wrong. The numerals should be silver grey and the letters on the barrel light grey.

Thank you Jan.
When looking at my reference pictures I found a major mistakes in the TM camo scheme. A large black strip is missing on the turret top. So the AB was used again.

Very subtle and discrete, this is the point where I personally tend to go overboard and mess up things :roll:

Thank you guys for the comments.
I applied a last wash between the ERA blocks as there shouldn't be accumulated dust there.

Here it is!

Nice work Olivier, the rear of the turret is really busy on this one.

Thank you.
Adam the vehicle I wanted to depict was displayed at an open day so the baskets were empty. In the field they often are full of crew gear like Blast Models resin set.
