2.     I purchased the kit for half its normal price from EBay. The seller had brought it over from Japan as the box was marked with its price in Yen. 3.     By the time these photo's were taken most assembly had been done and the last few etched items from an Eduard set were being added. 4.     By March 2005 we had completed the initial sub-assemblies and had airbrushed a black undercoat before the camouflage top coat. Then the hand painted details were added.

5.     The matt coat provide a good base for the artist chalk weathering added at this point. The colour has been mixed with Humbrol Enamels from a sample. Tamiya only quoted their own paints.....

6.     ....in this case the quoted paint was a spray can which we went out and bought. Sadly the spray can paint was not compatible with the undercoat so it couldn't be used itself. 7.     After the chalk weathering was applied the components were airbrushed with a gloss coat to seal in the chalk and provide a suitable base for the brown acrylic wash. 8.     The acrylic will just soak into the matt coat without running into the detail as we need it to. After the wash the dry-brushing is performed over the completed model. 9.     The model is now complete and is a little over 70mm long.

10.     The decals are from the kit and were applied before the wash.
