Been playing with some paint now guys.. still waiting for the Mig ammo desert yellow RAL8020.. I gave the chassis and odds and ends a coat of Alclad black primer filler..





I was hoping this would show up any imperfections, mould seams or gaps.. but no it all looks good initially, until I added some desert sand colour I remember I mixed up for my Matilda.

Man, those imperfections pop now!!

If you've been thinking of getting this kit, I think these next three pics might make your mind up for you? Its some of the best detail I've ever seen on a 50 kit!!



Engine is Gunze RLM 65, transmission is Tamiya XF26 deep green.



The rear end is just as busy..



Isn't it amazing what a little colour can do for a model. Just think how much better it's gonna look with washes and weathering!!

Real nice job!,
I have the LZ models resin wheel sets for both the tractor and trailer (firestone) and the tread pattern is the same on both!?, I'm confused.
Happy new year
