Looking good Paul. I was surprised at the number of parts this kit has. About all that is left is adding the fuel cans. Then I can prime and paint, in this case, Russian Green with a whitewashing.

Nice progress, fellas.

Cool that Eastern Express includes a metal barrel in a small kit.

Some interesting designs there. There WERE tanks of different sizes, just as with ships. Good going so far!

Mike: The metal barrel was purchased separately. And I mistakenly purchased both in this scale, vice 1:35. But I'm enjoying it.

attached the road wheels, and working on the tracks now

whole thing had a black wash

not sure how to go with this, im actually leaning towards not doing much more other than a matt clear coat rather than over doing it with weathering

The basic paint scheme is done and one side has the road wheels and tracks completed. The tracks left a bit to be desired, but a healthy dose of mud should cover over the blemishes.

One of the nice things about military models is the simplicity of paint,often. The options of doing a different variation and/or battle damage can also personalize a kit. Congrats to all for this group build!

Nice paint work, Paul.

Looking very good, Cole. Doesn't look like 1/72nd scale.
