I am currently testing the new AK Iteractive Real Color line, so I used their color for painting my Magach 2. I am satisfied with the basic shade. Detail painting is to follow.

I leghtened the basic color shade so that when I do a wash and a gloss varnish it will not get too dark. I also started painting the details. Some dry brushing and corrections are to follow.

Thank you both for the kind comments.

Gloss varnish and decals. The choice is a little on the fictional side but I like the look so pretend I did not tell you...

Wow. I have the legends M4E8 set and panicked at the thought of sawing off the front of the turret. I wish there was a templet or some kind of guide. You made it look easy.

Thank you. You can try scribing the cut line before starting the cut. This way you will have a guide for the saw
