This one will be green/black. I have a couple of photos from Ullan Eagle exercise during 96 (published in MIS) that are my main reference for the paint scheme and weathered look I am aiming for.

Here are a few more photos of the model.

The green base color was applied overall and the running gear was assembled and slightly weathered with a "dust" wash.

Masking film and panzer putty was used to mask it before the black colour application.





Regarding the colours, I'm sure the colours I've picked are not the best match, but they look ok (at least to me). I've been using Mr. Color NATO colour set (Using only the green and black colours).

Cheers

The paint work looks great!! Though ive noticed in observation that the 30mm rarden cannon end hasnt been painted or thats what it looks like in the photos its still the yellowish styrene colour.
The wheels look great but the tracks are abit to brown in my opinion in comparison to the road wheels or are you planning to add mud effects?
These are just my constructive observations the model looks great and cant wait to see your next stage of weathering keep up the good work.

Thanks for all the pointers!

On the last photo, only the camouflage colors are applied (and the cannon is still to be painted as you correctly pointed out). I'm planning to brush paint all the details (like the cannon, fire extinguishers, etc...) using Vallejo Model Color range.

I hope to post more soon.

Cheers

Well your work is looking great. What colour are you doing the barrell if i may ask? Would it not be the standard green colour aswell or are you planning on some muzzle burn/sut?

Keep up the great work and look forward to your next painting post

Regarding the canon color, as far as I could gather from the photos I've seen, it looks like very dark metal stain (that characteristic dark metal color). There is an area (close to the barrel sleeve) that is bright metal.

Here are a few photos of the model, still missing some weathering.







I hope to complete it soon.

Cherers
