Thank you Peter.
Here's a couple of shots of the M47 with the white on, and the old Tamiya M41 I'm using as a test mule. I'll do the black on the M41, then clear, and try my wash of choice on it before I do the M47.

Yes, Italeri had a few real gems, and this is one of them. Always had great reviews on it.

Fine work on this one Russel. Very nice so far.

Thanks John. I think the kit is from the '70s. All things considered, it was way ahead of its time. I pick them up now and then at shows just for parts as they're often priced at $10 or less. One of my Tamiya Pershings has the gun breach in the turret, and the tool box handles are on a Pershing or two in the case. The tool kit and some other things are rather crude, but overall it's a fine kit, aside from the tracks.

That looks great Russ, I really like that Italeri kit, look at those separate handles on the tool boxes, how old is that kit? Some of the kits now are still molding on blobs for handles. Pretty sad when a kit that old has better details than some of the more modern kits.

Thought I'd start a thread on this, painting almost done, doing one in ROK camo. Kit has Tamiya, Dragon and DEF parts.
So far:
